Note about the prerequisite material from
Calculus II
The material that you must know from Calculus II is:
1. Definition of vectors in 2D
and 3D;
2. Geometric addition and scalar
multiplication of vectors (this includes parallel vectors);
3. Equations of lines in 2D and
of lines and planes in 3D.
If you do not remember some of
this material, you must review it on
your own.
- Topics 1 and 2 are reviewed in
Sec. 12.2 of your Calculus textbook by Stewart,
and also in Secs. 2.1 and 2.2 of your
Linear Algebra textbook. (You should focus
only on these topics in Secs. 2.1 and
2.2 and disregard other topics there.)
- Topic 3 will be very briefly reviewed
in Sec. 3.1.
It is also
reviewed in Sec. 12.5 of Stewart's Calculus and in Sec. 2.4 of your
Linear Algebra book.
