Vector calculus is one of the most useful branches of mathematics for game development. The [course_title] is designed to provide an introduction to functions of several real variables. Topics discussed are partial derivatives; directional derivatives; gradients; extremal problems and  Lagrange’s multiplier method; multiple integrals, line and surface integrals; vector-valued functions; divergence, curl and flux of vector fields; the theorems of Green and Stokes; the divergence theorem; and applications.

### Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

### Certification

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

• Show it to prove your success
