Learning outcomes 1. It is intended that the students develop a clear understanding of the main tools in the multivariable calculus. The student should be able to analyze vector functions and scalar functions of several variables. Specifically, the students shall:
Compute limits and study continuity;
Compute partial derivatives and study differentiability;
Recognize the significance of the gradient and its relationship with directional derivatives and linear approximation;
Apply the chain rule and the implicit function theorem;
Set up and solve optimization problems with or without constraints;
Compute multiple integrals, including use of change of variables techniques, identify the coordinate systems and make change of variable;
2. It is intended that the students develop a clear understanding of the basic results on ordinary differential equations. The student should be able to solve basic differential equations and to apply basic differential equations to mathematical modelling.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The curricular unit runs in theoretical-practical type of lessons. In the first part of the lesson, the professor exposes the most relevant results and techniques, usually illustrated by examples. The second part of the lesson is devoted to problem solving by the students. The students are proposed to solve a list of problems from the adopted book.
Three written tests will take place: T1, T2, and TG.
The student is approved if the classification “Ensino-Aprendizagem” or the classification in one of the exams is greater or equal than 10 points.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
