Professor Raffi Hovasapian helps students develop their Multivariable Calculus intuition with in-depth explanations of concepts before reinforcing an understanding of the material through varied examples. This course is appropriate for those who have completed single-variable calculus. Topics covered include everything from Vectors to Partial Derivatives, Lagrange Multipliers, Line Integrals, Triple Integrals, and Stokes' Theorem. Professor Hovasapian has degrees in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Classics and over 10 years of teaching experience.
This course is essential for college students taking Linear Algebra who want to learn both theory and application. Each lesson in the course begins with essential ideas & proofs before concluding with many worked-out examples. Theorems are stated and used but not proved to keep the emphasis on problem solving and gaining an intuitive feeling for the concepts.
This online course is perfect for high school students and college students looking to have a solid foundation in Pre-Algebra, which is indispensable for setting up a proper mathematical background to succeed in more advanced math and science courses.
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.
