COURSE PREREQUISITE:   Math 1700 (Calculus I, Sci & Eng) or Math 1220 (Calculus I) with a C grade or better, or equivalent transfer credit.

TEXT :  Calculus with Early Vectors, by Zenor, Slaminka, Thaxton.   Prentice Hall.  This is the same text used in Math 1700.  If you did not take this course, you will need to obtain the text.  You may be able to save money by ordering the text on the internet, in which case you will need the ISBN number : 0-13-791203-X.  

SYLLABUS :   This is a continuation of Calculus I, covering the basics of differentiation and integration of vector functions.  The 1700-1710 sequence (with its emphasis on vector functions) is directed towards students who are required to take a calculus-based physics course.

TECHNOLOGY :   It is required that you have a graphing calculator.  If you don’t own one, get a TI-89 (includes a differential equations menu, plus symbolic algebra and calculus).    I will use the TI-89 for classroom demonstrations.
