Official Course Description:
Engineering and Science Mathematics 1B introduces multivariable calculus
and ordinary differential equations, topics of particular importance to the physical sciences.
Students of ACM, Physics, and Electrical Engineering are strongly encouraged to take this
course in their first semester. The curriculum is designed so that ESM 1A and ESM 1B can be
taken at the same time.
The course covers vector algebra (three-dimensional vectors, dot product, cross product),
equations of lines, planes, and spheres, Euclidean distance, vector-valued functions, space
curves, functions of several variables, partial derivatives, chain rule, gradient, directional derivative,
extrema, Lagrange multipliers, double and triple integrals with applications, change of
variables, vector fields, divergence, curl, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, line integrals,
Green’s theorem in the plane, surface and volume integrals, divergence theorem, Stokes’ theorem,
introduction to ordinary differential equations (direction field, the question of existence
and uniqueness of solutions), separable and exact equations, integrating factors, and linear
higher order ODEs with constant coefficients.
