#### Description

An introduction to multivariable calculus, including vectors and vector-valued functions, partial derivatives and applications of partial derivatives (such as tangent planes and Lagrange multipliers), multiple integrals, volume, surface area, and the classical theorems of Green, Stokes and Gauss. All sections of the course will use the software package MATLAB. Credit will be granted for only one of the following: MATH 241 or MATH 340.
