  • Overview

    Studying this unit will allow you to develop further the ideas and techniques that were studied in first year calculus. Advanced calculus allows you to consider more realistic applied mathematics problems that are set in the context of our multivariable world. The unit prepares you for later studies in applied and computational mathematics such as partial differential equations, transport theory and fluid dynamics. This unit covers topics including multivariable functions and coordinate systems, vector-valued functions, differential and integral calculus of multivariable functions, and related applications.
    Learning Outcomes
    On successful completion of this unit you should be able to:
    1. Communicate mathematics and problem solutions clearly and consistently both in written and oral forms.
    2. Recognise, construct and solve problems, both in abstract and real world contexts, using the critical thinking and the mathematical theory of advanced calculus.
    3. Decompose complex problems into smaller components, resolve these smaller components and hence the original problem.
