## Prerequisites for this course

Three semesters of calculus (MAC 2311-12-13 or equivalent).

## What this course is and is not about

This course primarily concerns the calculus of vector fields.
Although MAS 4156 is titled "Introduction" to Vector Analysis,
all students eligible for this course have seen vector analysis before
in Calculus 3. This is course is intended to go * beyond * what
is usually covered in Calculus 3; it is * not * intended as a
course for students who have forgotten Calculus 3 and need to re-learn
it from scratch. We will * briefly review * the necessary
material from Calculus 3 before extending it. Once a topic is
reviewed, students will be expected to have the same skills at their
disposal as if they had taken Calculus 3 last semester, did well, and
are ready to proceed to learn new and more difficult material.
Students for whom a brief review is insufficient will need to fill in
the gaps on their own.
