now my question is for calculus 3? I am allowed to take linear algebra together with calculus 2 at the same time, but I opted. Instead I will be taking cal 2, physics intro, computer science intro, and a spanish class.

Can calculus 3 be done without knowing introduction linear algebra? The only pre rec for calculus 3 is calculus 2.

Would I also have to learn proof writing when I take linear algebra? I do not know anything of proof writing besides proof by induction and a few proofs of calculus 1, trig, and algebra I have seen in my college textbooks.

I will be purchasing a copy of "How to solve it" to learn basic proof reasoning.

If I need to self study linear algebra to do well in calculus 3, what would be a great introduction to linear algebra? I prefer one where the language is clear and not to hard, like say Spivak Calculus, but will allow me to grasp the material.
