How would calculus (multivariable calculus, vector calculus, integral calculus, differential calculus) be taught in undergraduate programme (U.S.)? For example, in freshman, what would be taught, in sophomore, what would be taught etc.

Also, how would differential equations be taught?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

A bit too broad, I think; each school (and probably each teacher, for that matter) has its own ideas. –  J. M. Jul 20 '12 at 3:20
-1. With so many syllabi online, there is no need to ask this question at MSE. –  user31373 Jul 20 '12 at 3:21

I am puzzled by the conditional nature of your question, i.e., why would? Calculus is taught in the undergraduate programs of most colleges and universities in the US. There are many large universities (like mine, UGA) in which calculus is taught in many different shapes and sizes within the same department. Of course there is also variation across departments and programs. So I don't really understand what you're asking and why you're asking it: are you from outside of the US? –  Pete L.

@Pete: The spelling programme is a pretty good indication that Sarah is from outside the U.S. even if the question itself did not already point in that direction, and this kind of non-conditional would is a not uncommon usage. –  Brian M. Scott Jul 20 '12 at 8:56
