MATH 9 Multivariable Differential Calculus with Linear Algebra

This course includes the multivariable calculus material present in MATH 8 along with a brief introduction to concepts from linear algebra. First-year students who have successfully completed a BC calculus curriculum in secondary school may complete multivariable calculus either by taking the two-term sequence MATH 9, 13 or by taking the single course MATH 11. Topics include vector geometry, equations oflines and planes, matrices and linear transformations, space curves (velocity, acceleration, arclength), functions of several variables (limits and continuity, partial derivatives, the derivative as a linear transformation, tangent planes and linear approximation, the Chain Rule, directional derivatives and applications, and optimization problems including the use of Lagrange multipliers).

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
