Vector
functions, partial derivatives, gradient, multiple integrals, line
integrals, optimization, applications. Offered in both terms.
This course is the sequel to MATH 1300/1310. It is a required
course in the ordinary programme in Mathematics, and in
honours programmes in Mathematics for Commerce.
Just as MATH 1300/1310 studied the calculus of functions of one
variable, this course studies vectors and the calculus of
functions of two or three variables. In addition to the above topics, we
discuss tangent lines to space curves, tangent planes to
surfaces, and change of variable in multiple integrals.
Students wishing to pursue calculus further may follow this
course with MATH 3010 3.0.
The central source for the course is the textbook.
The lectures will not necessarily
cover the same material as the text but will
instead complement the material in the text.
Reading the text and attending the lectures is
essential for success in this course.
The text will be Salas and Hille, Calculus: One and Several Variables,
8th ed. (Wiley).
The grade breakdown will be announced later.
