AS/SC/AK/ MATH 2310 3.0 FW

Calculus of Several Variables with Applications

      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.

Prerequisite:One of AS/SC/MATH 1010 3.0, AS/SC/MATH 1014 3.0, AS/SC/AK/MATH 1310 3.0.
Exclusions:AS/SC/MATH 2010 3.0, AS/SC/MATH 2015 3.0.
