The material on complex numbers is within the scope of information covered algebra and trigonometry, or in a pre-calculus or math analysis course. The material on second order differential equations is supplemental and suitable for inclusion ...

Do you think you will enjoy learning calculus on manifolds? I think there is a lot to appreciate there, and it opens the doors to a lot of beautiful mathematics and physics(differential geometry, differential topology, general relativity, de Rham cohomology, Hodge theory, etc). You can mostly get by in calculus on manifolds with just Riemannian integration. ...
