- Understand the notion of parcial derivative, differentiability, directional derivative and understand the implicit and inverse function theorems.

 - Understand the Taylor development and its applications to the study of functions and calculus of extreme values.

- Understand the notion of double and triple integral and perform calculations with the adequate coordinates.

- Understand some applications of the double and triple integral.

Teaching method

Theoretical classes consist on a theoretical exposition illustrated by examples of applications.

Practical classes consist on the solving of exercises of application of the methods and results presented in the theoretical classes. These exercises are chosen from a list provided by the teachers. 

 Any questions or doubts will be adressed during the classes, during the weeekly sessions specially programmed to it  or even at special sessions previously arranjed between professors and students.
