    Calculus II
    Module code: 4CCM112A
    Semester: Semester 2 (spring)
    Module description:
    Aims and objectives:
    The course aims to extend the methods of calculus of one variable to calculus for functions of many variables, that is, calculus on higher dimensional spaces. This involves concepts such as multiple integrals and partial derivatives, which enable us to make sense of the idea of length of a curve, area of a surface, and maxima and minima of functions of many variables. The final part of the course presents the great integral theorems: Green's Theorem, Stokes' theorem and the Divergence Theorem which form a cornerstone of mathematics.
    Pre-requisites 4CCM111A Calculus I or equivalent.
    Syllabus:
    Surface sketching, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, geometry of curves, vector fields, geometry of surfaces, maxima and minima, generalised derivatives, Stokes' Theorem, the Divergence Theorem.
