Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Students are Expected to have completed:
Compentences and Skills that will be Acquired and Learning Results:
The student will be able to formulate, solve and understand mathematically the problems arising in engineering. To do so it is necessary, in this second course of Calculus, to be familiar with the n-dimensional euclidean space, in particular in dimension 3, and with its more usual subsets. He/she must be able to manage (scalar and vectorial) several variables functions and its continuity, differentiability and integrability properties. The student must solve optimization problems with and without restrictions and will apply the main integration theorems to compute areas and volumes, inertial moments and heat flow.
Description of Contents: Course Description
1. Differential calculus on several variables:
1.1 Functions of several variables. Limits and continuity.
1.2 Derivatives. Differenciability.
1.3 Vectorial functions and differential operators.
1.4 Chain rule and directional derivatives.
2. Local study of functions of several variables.
2.1 Derivatives of higher order.
2.2 Extrems of functions of several variables.
2.3 Conditioned extrems.
3. Integration on Rn:
3.1 Multiple integral.
3.2 Changes of variable on multiple integrals.
4. Line and surface integrals:
4.1 Line integrals and conservative fields.
4.2 Surface integrals.
4.3 Green, Stokes and Gauss theorems.
Learning Activities and Methodology:
The docent methodology will include:
- Master classes, where the knowledge that the students must acquire will be presented. To make easier the development of the class, the students will have written notes and also will have the basic texts of reference that will facilitate their subsequent work.
- Resolution of exercises by the student that will serve as self-evaluation and to acquire the necessary skills.
- Problem classes, in which proposed problems are discussed and developed.
- Partial controls.
- Final exam.
The evaluation will be based in the following criteria:
- Partial evaluation controls (40%).
- Final examination (60%).

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
