Course Description

In multivariable calculus, we progress from working with numbers on a line to points in space. It gives us the tools to break free from the constraints of one-dimension, using functions to describe space, and space to describe functions.

The only thing separating multivariable calculus from ordinary calculus is this newfangled word "multivariable". It means we will deal with functions whose inputs or outputs live in two or more dimensions. Here we lay the foundations for thinking about and visualizing multivariable functions.
