Using the mathematics computer laboratory, students gain a clear understanding of the fundamental principles of calculus and how they are applied in real-world situations. Topics: infinite series, functions of several variables and their derivatives, gradient, directional derivatives, vector-valued functions and their derivatives, the Jacobian matrix, and chain rule.
