Lower division undergraduate mathematics includes courses that are considered general requirements or non-major specific courses. They are taken by students who do not intend to major in mathematics, although there may be a slightly different version of the course tailored at mathematics majors. This is in contrast with upper division undergraduate mathematics, typically taken by and targeted at mathematics majors.
|Subject||Brief description||Benefits||Learning recommendations|
|Single-variable calculus||Limits, differentiation, integration, sequences and series (including Taylor series and power series), some ordinary differential equations. College calculus is more focused on proofs and concepts than high school calculus (such as AP Calculus).||single-variable calculus learning benefits||single-variable calculus learning recommendations|
|Multivariable calculus||Functions of multiple variables, partial derivatives, iterated integration, parametric and polar coordinates, and other topics.||multivariable calculus learning benefits||multivariable calculus learning recommendations|
