These four courses should be taken in sequence, although 211 and 212 are relatively interchangeable. Each of these courses is offered every semester, but the choice of times is limited in the “off” semester.
Students should consider the honors calculus courses if they have a strong math background and are either considering a major in an area with a substantial math component, or just enjoy a challenge and want to go beyond just learning to solve problems. All of these courses will teach students how to prove mathematical statements.
MATH 221 and 222 stress theoretical aspects of multivariable calculus, although they also contain a considerable amount of problem solving. Students may not receive University credit for both 212 and 222, but it is possible to receive credit for both 212 and 221.
Math 220 is offered in the spring and satisfies requirements for Math 211. It covers the same material, but with more of an emphasis on theory.
These courses emphasize problem solving, and do not go as far as 101-102. They are not intended for science or engineering majors, but a student may take 111, 112, and 102 (or 111, 101, and 102).
