Calculus A,B,C, & D vs. 1,2,3

  1. Apr 11, 2009 #1
    Im currently taking night courses and all they offer is calculus ABCD. I just finished calc C and the course covered convergent and divergent series, power series, vectors in 3d, and polar coordinates. I was wondering how ABCD compare to 1,2,3? If I complete ABCD does that mean i don't need to take calc 1,2,3?

    You could start at Calc 3. That's where you get your 3d vector operators Div Grad and Curl

    just a fun fact:

    UCLA's Calculus system is 6 semesters:



    the typical calc 1,2,3 linear algebra, differential equations typical path for most colleges and universities

    Is linear algebra covered in their calculus sequence?

    33A is linear algebra, and 33B is intro to diff equations

    so I guess their sequence is just like calc abcd + those two classes.
