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.
Scientists studying the universe at all scales often marvel at the seemingly "unreasonable effectiveness" of mathematics—its uncanny ability to reveal the hidden order behind the most complex of nature's phenomena. They are not alone: Economists, sociologists, political scientists, and many other specialists have also experienced the wonder of math's muscle power.
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.
