Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:
1) compute the lengths of parametric curves, reparametrize curves by arclength and compute the scalar curvature of a curve.
2) knows the definition of continuity for vector valued and multivariable functions, and is able to check continuity for such functions.
3) has a firm understanding of differentiability for vector valued and multivariable functions including partial and directional derivatives and is able to compute partial and directional derivatives from the definition, linear approximations, and determine the tangent plane of the graph of a multivariable function. He/she is able to apply the chain rule.
4) determine extrema of multivariable functions. This also includes extrema under a constraint by applying the method of a Lagrange multiplier. For functions of two variables, the students can use the Hessian to distinguish between minima, maxima and saddle points.
5) knows the Implicit Function Theorem and is able to apply it.
6) understand change of coordinates Cartesian, polar, spherical and cylindrical coordinates.
7) accurately depict and compute the dot product and the cross product of vectors, and understand what a vector field is.
8) compute the curl and the divergence of a vector field and has an idea of the geometric meaning. The student is able to determine whether a vector field is conservative, and compute a potential function for a conservative vector field.
Omschrijving Calculus 2 is a multivariable calculus course for engineers, physical scientists, and business management.
The course treats topics related to differential and basic integral calculus of functions of several variables. Topics will include curves in the plane, curves and surfaces in space, coordinate systems, partial differentiation, tangent planes and linear/quadratic approximation, optimization, directional derivatives, path integrals, and vector fields.

(If the mark of the final exam is 4.5 or higher then the grade for the course will be max (FE, 0.6 FE + 0.2 ME1 + 0.2 ME2, 0.8 FE + 0.2 HW), where FE is the mark for the final exam, ME1 and ME2 are the marks for the midterm exams, and HW is the average mark of the homework assignments. If the mark of the final exam is lower than 4.5 then the grade for the course will be the mark of the final exam.)
