Multiplying and dividing large numbers. Simplifying fractions and converting percentages. Handling square roots and exponents. These and other skills are the veritable foundation on which all of mathematics rests. To master them is to unlock the door to more advanced areas of study—such as algebra, geometry, and calculus—and to discover new levels of confidence in dealing with the math of everyday life.
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.
Go, the new open source language from Google, is known for its simple syntax, rich library, easy concurrency, and scalability. It’s used in software systems where "scale big and run fast" is the daily mantra. As you work through real-world examples and task-based lessons, you'll learn the complete language and discover how useful Go can be.
