Hi everybody.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to take a course this spring called "intro to partial differential equations, fourier series, and boundary value problems", and I'm wondering, how much vector calculus (if any) should I learn before this course starts? I have multivariable calculus and ODEs down just fine, but I don't have vector calculus. For example, would I have to know Green's Theorem and Stokes' Theorem?
