Calculus Ⅱ-A

Course Code: B11004Y-A01

Course Name: Calculus -A

Credits: 4.0

Level: Undergraduate

Pre-requisite: CalculusI

Lecture Time: 20 weeks, 2 sessions/week, 2 hours/session


Course Description

This course is designed for undergraduate students from all majors. The requirements for students in this course are to learn fundamentals and methods of calculus and related knowledge about calculus. The category A of this course is based on theoretical proof which is not only suitable for students who decide  to choose the mathematics, physics, computer science and etc., but also suitable for students in other majors. The basic requirements are that students should have fundamental knowledge of multivariable calculus with good understanding of related definitions and methods. In addition, students should know how to think by using calculus. The course is aimed at laying the foundation for Calculus III and other courses.
