Course Objectives The course is designed as a continuation of MATH151 Calculus I and aims to give the students the computational skills in series, analytic geometry and multi-variable differential and integral calculus to handle engineering problems.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • understand and use sequences, infinite series, power series of functions, Taylor and Maclaurin series,
  • use analytic geometry through vectors and interpret lines, planes and surfaces in 3-dimensional space,
  • understand and use the functions of several variables, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, gradient vectors and tangent planes
  • find local and absolute extrema of multivariable functions, use Lagrange Multipliers and solve optimization problems,
  • understand and use double and triple integrals in different coordinate systems
Course Content Infinite series, vectors in the plane and polar coordinates, vectors and motions in space, multivariable functions and their derivatives, multiple integrals: double integrals, areas, double integrals in polar coordinates, triple integrals in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, line integrals, Independence of path,Green's theorem.
