MATH 2130 - Calculus III
- Instructor: Dr. Allen Back
Spring 2013. 3 credits.
Forbidden Overlap: Students may not receive credit for both MATH 1106 and MATH 1110. Prerequisite: three years of high school mathematics (including trigonometry and logarithms) or a precalculus course (e.g., MATH 1009 or 1101). Students who plan to take more than one semester of calculus should take MATH 1110 rather than MATH 1106.
Introduction to differential and integral calculus, partial derivatives, elementary differential equations. Examples from biology and the social sciences are used.
Mirroring Cornell University's strong commitment to K-12 education and outreach, the Mathematics Department has a longstanding history of providing support for the local community, including Grades K-12 teachers and students.
Math 1011 is a course that parallels Math 1110. Math 1011 meets weekly to review material presented in Math 1110 lectures, to provide problem solving techniques and tips, and to help prepare for prelims. The course provides further instruction for students who need reinforcement. It is NOT meant to be a substitute for Math 1110 lectures or recitations. Everyone enrolled in Math 1110 is welcome to attend Math 1011 lectures.

Fall 2014. 4 credits.
Forbidden Overlap: Students will receive credit for only one course among MATH 1120, 1220, and 1910.
Prerequisite: MATH 1110 with a grade of C or better, excellent performance in MATH 1106, or equivalent AP credit. Those who do well in MATH 1110 and expect to major in mathematics or a strongly mathematics-related field should take MATH 1220 instead of 1120.
Focuses on integration: applications, including volumes and arc length; techniques of integration, approximate integration with error estimates, improper integrals, differential equations (separation of variables, initial conditions, systems, some applications). Also covers infinite sequences and series: definition and tests for convergence, power series, Taylor series with remainder, and parametric equations.
Fall 2014. 4 credits.
Forbidden Overlap: Students will receive credit for only one course among MATH 1920, 2130, 2220, and 2240.
Prerequisite: MATH 2210. Recommended for students who plan to major or minor in mathematics or a related field.
Differential and integral calculus of functions in several variables, line and surface integrals as well as the theorems of Green, Stokes and Gauss.
