CMATH 2990 Multivariable Calculus

Multivariable calculus is an extension of single-variable calculus that allows us to tackle more interesting real-world problems by modeling them with functions of more than one variable. In this course we will learn about multivariate functions: how to visualize them, how to differentiate them, how to optimize them. We will also learn how to integrate multivariate functions over regions of the plane and explore applications of integration to probability. We will end the semester by looking at partial differential equations along with applications. Throughout the course we will emphasize applications drawn from business, economics, statistics, biology, the environment, and the physical sciences.
