Video Description: Herb Gross introduces us to the traditional Calculus of Several Variables. He defines and explains the properties of partial derivatives and shows how to draw a graph of a function of several variables. He finds the normal vector (using the cross product) and the tangent plane at a point in terms of partial derivatives. Finally, Prof. Gross shows the change of a function w in the tangent plane as an approximation to the differential of w.

Instructor/speaker: Prof. Herbert Gross
