This module extends the basic calculus in a single variable to the setting of real functions of several variables. It introduces techniques and concepts that are used throughout the mathematical sciences and physics: partial derivatives, double and triple integrals, surface sketching, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. It is recommended that students in the Faculties of Arts and Divinity take an even number of the 15-credit 2000-level MT modules.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass MT1002. If MT1002 has not been passed, advanced higher mathematics (at grade a) or A-Level further mathematics (at grade a) or both A-Level mathematics and physics (at grade a) or admission to a fast track mmath programme.
