Description
MATH& 153 is the third in a sequence of four calculus courses for students who are planning to major in engineering, mathematics, or the sciences. Graphical analysis of concepts is emphasized through the use of technology. Prerequisite: Grade of C- or higher in MATH& 152, satisfactory placement, or permission of Mathematics Department. Formerly MATH 126, Calculus with Analytic Geometry III.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Determine the convergence or divergence of a sequence numerically, graphically, and analytically and, if the sequence converges, find its limit.
  • Determine the absolute or conditional convergence or divergence of an infinite series using relevant tests including the divergence, geometric series, integral, p-series, comparison, limit comparison, alternating series, ratio, and root tests.
  • Construct power series representations of function and determine the corresponding interval of convergence; use power series to calculate limits, derivatives, and integrals of functions.
  • Apply calculus to polar and parametric equations.
  • Perform vector operations on two- and three-dimensional vectors.
  • Graph and use calculus to analyze both two and three-dimensional vector-valued functions.
  • Access and use technology as needed.
  • Communicate mathematics using relevant vocabulary and notation.
