As the title of the thread indicates, I would like to know what is the defined difference between Calculus 1, 2, and 3?

Is Calculus 1 = Differential Calculus, Calculus 2 = Integral Calculus, Calculus 3 = Multivariable Calculus?

Or is each a mixture of the three afore-mentioned respective subjects within calculus?

In short, What topics and how is each Calculus 1, 2, and 3 separated into?

Thank you!

1,350Senior Member12,496Senior MemberCalculus I includes both integration and differentiation. In my experience (currently taking Calculus II at a community college), Calc II goes over some additional integration applications and techniques, plus series and sequences.

Just one example. It really varies though. Calculus II isn't exactly a real thing. After that the courses tend to actually name what they teach.
