Course description

To see how calculus applies in situations described by more than one variable we study vectors lines planes and parameterization of curves and surfaces; partial derivatives directional derivatives and gradients; optimization and critical point analysis including the method of Lagrange multipliers; integration over curves surfaces and solid regions using Cartesian polar cylindrical and spherical coordinates; vector fields and line and surface integrals for work and flux; and the divergence and curl of vector fields together with applications.
