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, a topic pervasive throughout mathematics and its applications.   The introduction to linear algebra enables a more thorough understanding of multivariable calculus.  Topics include vector geometry, equations of lines 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).

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 faster-paced course MATH 11, which covers the second half of Math 8 together with the material from Math 13 in a single term.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
