Hey folks,

I'm going to be taking a linear algebra class soon, and I'm wondering how much Calculus I should expect. (I love Calculus, btw)

Thanks

Yeah, I doubt there will be much Calculus at all. Calculus will be assumed for some examples of vector spaces and what not, but that's it.

I enjoyed Linear Algebra more than Calculus. The introductory stuff anyways.

I should point out that using linear algebra and calculus together is a very profitable venture.

It's just that it probably won't be done in your linear algebra course.

It would be the case if you were taking a course in "Analytical and Differential Geometry of curves and surfaces in [itex] \mathbb{R}^n [/itex]"

Interesting... I was wondering because my school says that Calc 2 is a prerequisite to it.
