WHAT IS MATH 20C? This is the third calculus
course for students of mathematics,
science, and engineering. In this course we examine topics of
calculus, but from a multidimensional perspective. We will visit four
major themes: 1) Vectors and vector operations; 2)
Derivation and integration of vector valued functions of one variable;
3) Partial derivatives of functions of several
variables; 4) Integration of functions of several

a classmate can help. Sometimes you can learn by working out problems
together with your classmates.
