This course covers the most common techniques and methods of multivariable differential calculus, with an emphasis on examples of two and three variables. Reasoning and theory will be discussed but not in the most rigorous way. Topics include Euclidean space and vectors, curves and their tangent frame, limits and differentiation of functions, extremum problems. Simple ordinary differential equations will be discussed if time permits.
