Resources for topics covered in MATH1011

Calculating limits for two variable functions

Presentation slides from a (ma+hs)Smart workshop designed to review this topic after lectures are finished. See the workshop timetable to find out if this session is running this semester.

In particular, the workshop uses our knowledge of 1-variable functions and their limits to define limits for 2-variable functions. After that we discuss the various different types of calculation required to establish whether a limit exists.

The slides are reasonably self-explanatory so feel free to click through them.


Directional derivatives

Presentation slides from a (ma+hs)Smart workshop designed to review this topic. See the workshop timetable to find out if this session is running this semester.

In particular, the workshop provides examples of directional derivative questions and provides tips on how to study topics like this.
