This course begins with a quick review of some techniques of single-variable calculus (211), which is a prerequisite. We next study some applications of single-variable calculus, in both optimization and basic economics. The main part of the course will consist of an introduction to calculus in several variables, to Taylor approximation (aka `the theory of calculators'), and then a brief introduction to differential equations. Here is an approximate schedule (soon to be superseded by a more detailed one.)

19 Jan -- 9 Feb Chapters 1-4
16 Feb -- 16 Mar Parts of Chapters 5 and 6
18 Mar -- 1 Apr Chapter 7.1--7.6
8 Apr -- 20 Apr Sections 9.1 -- 9.3 (other text)
22 Apr -- 6 May Sections 8.1 -- 8.4.
