Course Description
This is a second step into calculus, with a geometric flavor. We will begin with a study of vectors in three dimensions and move into calculus through the study of curves and their geometric features. We will then turn to some basic concepts in real analysis, including the study of sequences and series, leading to the study of power series. We will conclude with an initiation into calculus in higher dimensions.
