Sequences and series. Power series. Taylor polynomials, Taylor series and approximation. Visualizing functions of several variables; graphs and contour diagrams. Vectors. Differentation in several variables; partial and directional derivatives. Linear and quadratic approxiamtion. Classification of local extrema. Optimization, Lagrange Multipliers. Integration in several variables. Iterated integrals. Change of variables; polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinates.


To introduce series and concepts of multivariable calculus, to relate notions in multivariable calculus to their analogues in single variable.


  • Define the notion of convergence of series and use various tests to determine series convergence
  • Find Taylor representations of functions and approximate functions via Taylor polynomials
  • Understand and use the concept of a function of several variables, draw graphs in 3-space
  • Use the properties of vectors and operations with vectors
  • Compute partial derivatives, directional derivatives and write equations of tangent planes to surfaces
  • Apply partial derivatives to find and test local extrema
  • Evaluate double integrals in Cartesian and polar coordinates and triple integrals in Cartesian coordinates
