Applied Calculus 2

Of the whole Calculus series, Calculus 2 is probably the one with the most obvious “everyday applications”. Its two main topics are the “geometrical” integrals, like arc length or volume and area of curved objects, and optimization of functions of several variables, with and without constraints.

I taught Applied Calculus 2 in Winter 2024 at the University of Waterloo.
