On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:

Write equations of planes, lines and quadric surfaces in the 3-space;

Determine the type of conic section and write change of coordinates turning a quadratic equation into its standard form;

Use cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems;

Write equations of a tangent line, compute unit tangent, normal and binormal vectors and curvature at a given point on a parametic curve; compute the length of a portion of a curve;

Apply above concepts to describe motion of a particle in the space;

Calculate limits and partial derivatives of functions of several variables

Write local linear and quadratic approximations of a function of several variables, write equation of the plane tangent to its graph at a given point;

Compute directional derivatives and determine the direction of maximal growth of a function using its gradient vector;
