    Calculus 3 is usually multi-variable calculus. You'll learn things such as partial derivatives, multiple integration, gradients, curl, flux, Lagrange multipliers, and Green's and Stoke's theorems. Or it could be a differential equations course.

    And/or Linear Algebra.

    Multivariate Calc and Linear Algebra are considered to be the foundation for elective courses in math.
