Calculus offers some of the most astounding advances in all of mathematics—reaching far beyond the two-dimensional applications learned in first-year calculus. We do not live on a sheet of paper, and in order to understand and solve rich, real-world problems of more than one variable, we need multivariable calculus, where the full depth and power of calculus is revealed.
Understanding Multivariable Calculus: Problems, Solutions, and Tips, taught by award-winning Professor Bruce H. Edwards of the University of Florida, brings the concepts of calculus together in a much deeper and more powerful way. Building from an understanding of basic concepts in Calculus I, it is a full-scope course that encompasses all the key topics of multivariable calculus, together with brief reviews of needed concepts as you go along. This course is the next step for students and professionals to expand their knowledge for work or study in mathematics, statistics, science, or engineering and to learn new methods to apply to their field of choice.
Calculus II is the payoff for mastering Calculus I. This second course in the calculus sequence introduces you to exciting new techniques and applications of one of the most powerful mathematical tools ever invented. Equipped with the skills of Calculus II, you can solve a wide array of problems in the physical, biological, and social sciences, engineering, economics, and other areas. Success at Calculus II also gives you a solid foundation for the further study of mathematics, and it meets the math requirement for many undergraduate majors.
Understanding Calculus II: Problems, Solutions, and Tips takes you on this exhilarating journey in 36 intensively illustrated half-hour lectures that cover all the major topics of the second full-year calculus course in high school at the College Board Advanced Placement BC level or a second-semester course in college. Drawing on decades of teaching experience, Professor Bruce H. Edwards of the University of Florida enriches his lectures with crystal-clear explanations, frequent study tips, pitfalls to avoid, and—best of all—hundreds of examples and practice problems that are specifically designed to explain and reinforce key concepts.
Calculus 3 is considered by most to be a very difficult course to master in the realm of Calculus. This is because you will learn about many different topics, and each topic builds on the previous. If you don't understand something early on, the chances of "catching up" are drastically reduced as time goes on.
