Multivariable calculus: analytic geometry, scalar and vector products, partial differentiation, multiple integration, change of coordinates, gradient, optimization, line integrals, Green's theorem, elements of vector calculus.

MAT 211 meets for five hours of lecture per week.

MAT 193 or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better.

After completing MAT 211 the student should be able to

- Gain an intuitive understanding of functions of several variables via level curves and surfaces, and related concepts of limit, continuity and differentiability.
- Perform partial differentiation and multiple integration of functions of several variables.
- Change from Cartesian co-ordinates to polar, cylindrical or spherical co-ordinates and vice versa, perform differential (partial or ordinary) and integration (multiple or single) in curvilinear co-ordinate systems and effect transformation via the Jacobian..
- Utilize vectors to deal with spatial curves and surfaces, and calculus of several variables
- Understand and use the concepts of vector calculus: gradient, curl, divergence, line and surface integrals, Green's, Stokes' and the divergence theorem.
- Apply calculus of several variables to solve problems of optimization, differential geometry and physics

Students should be able to demonstrate through written assignments, tests, and/or oral presentations, that they have achieved the objectives of MAT 211.

Evaluations are based on homework, class participation, short tests and scheduled examinations covering students' understanding of topics covered in MAT 211.

Students' grades are based on homework, class participation, short tests, and scheduled examinations covering students' understanding of the topics covered in MAT 211. The instructor determines the relative weights of these factors.

Attendance policy is set by the instructor.

Due dates and policy regarding make-up work are set by the instructor.

The instructor sets all test dates except the date of the final exam. The final exam is given at the date and time announced in the Schedule of Classes.

The mathematics department does not tolerate cheating. Students who have questions or concerns about academic integrity should ask their professors or the counselors in the Student Development Office, or refer to the University Catalog for more information.
