Multivariable Calculus is the second course in the Calculus Revisited series. The course consists of 26 videos, 4 Study Guides, and a set of Supplementary Notes.
The series was first released in 1971 as a way for people to review the essentials of calculus. It is equally valuable for students who are learning calculus for the first time.
Highlights for High School
OCW was proud to participate in the 23rd annual conference for the Society for Instructional Technology and Teacher Education, held in Austin, Texas. Teachers from around the world gathered to learn about the latest trends in technology and education, visit local schools and universities, and network with other educators interested in technology.
We presented ways educators can use OCW in the classroom. For example, with OCW, educators can create a "flipped classroom" model; students are assigned video lectures as homework, and the teacher can spend class time doing projects and other types of hands-on learning.

Courses in Context: Rejection and Alcohol
Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) was involved in a recent study on the relationship between natural and drug rewards.
In a recent study that investigates the relationship between natural and drug rewards, neuroscientists have discovered that rejected male fruit flies drank four times more alcohol than mated ones.
Neuropeptide F, a chemical found in the fruit fly brain, regulates behavior like eating, anxiety, and sleeping. Scientists believe there is a link between neuropeptide F activity, the mating experience, and alcohol consumption.
