Multivariable Calculus

Credits: 1

This upper-level calculus course is intended for students with a strong interest in mathematics and a solid foundation in single variable calculus. The topics of this course will include partial derivatives, gradients, constrained optimization using Lagrange multipliers, double and triple integrals with applications, as well as cylindrical and spherical coordinates, and using Jacobian matrices to change coordinate systems. Vector calculus will also be studied including line and surface integrals, divergence and curl, and the theorems of Green and Stokes. The use of computer algebra systems will be an essential part of the course.

 

Prerequisite: Calculus BC; with departmental approval.
