Course Code: MM3CMT01 Coordinator: Dr. Manju K. Menon
Course Credit: 4
Semester: III
Class: BSc Physics and BSc Chemistry
Course Type: Complimentary
Department: Mathematics
COURSE OBJECTIVES
To understand the vector differentiation, Integration, Basics of Analytic Geometry and some basic Concepts in Abstract Algebra giving importance to do more problems.
Learning Outcomes
After completing this course the learner should be able to
 Analyze vector functions to find derivatives, tangent lines, integrals, arc length, and curvature
 Compute limits and derivatives of functions of 2 and 3 variables
 Apply derivative concepts to find tangent lines to level curves and solve optimization problems
 Evaluate double and triple integrals for area and volume
 Differentiate vector fields.
 Determine gradient vector fields and find potential functions
 Analyse the fundamental theorem of calculus and see their relation to fundamental theorem of Calculus , leading to the more generalised version of Stokes theorem in the setting of differential forms.
 Evaluate line integrals directly and by the fundamental theorem.
 Understand analytic Geometry
 Understands basics of Abstract Algebra
