Description

The Calculus III for Honours Mathematics Content Pack is a full Möbius course developed by the University of Waterloo which covers multivariable calculus—commonly called Calculus III—with a theoretical and proofs-based approach. Topics covered include: calculus of functions of several variables, limits, continuity, differentiability, the chain rule, the gradient vector and the directional derivative, Taylor’s formula, optimization problems, mappings and the Jacobian, and multiple integrals in various coordinate systems. This customizable resource contains 17 units containing sectioned lessons and assignments enhanced with Möbius capabilities including in-lesson questions with unlimited practice, algorithmic questions, adaptive questions, Geogebra resources, interactive narratives, hints and immediate feedback, and end-of-section assignments.
