The first Final Mastery Prep sessions will start by covering everything you need to know about multiple integration and exam-level applications of partial derivatives. All problems are taken from or based on past exam questions. Advanced applications of partial derivatives include proving identities involving partial derivatives; distinguishing between a function’s implicit and explicit dependence on a variable; the Jacobian and its application to implicit partial derivatives, as well as systems of implicit partial derivatives. Topics related to integration will include identifying domains of integration; expressing domains as limits of integration; making multivariate substitutions; polar-, cylindrical- and spherical coordinates, as well as applications of multiple integration. We will also review the most advanced examples of multivariate differentiation. The focus of the session will be adjusted to the content emphasized by your Prof., so as to best reflect the content that will be on the exam.
N.B. in order to focus on truly advanced, exam-level content, students will be expected to attempt ~15-25 problems prior to the session; the solutions will be reviewed at the start of the session.

The focus of the second Final Mastery Prep session will be determined by you and the other students at the session: additional notes covering Power, MacLaurin and Taylor Series; common exam-level applications of the gradient and linearization; extrema and constrained optimization using Lagrange Multipliers, including ~55 exam-level problems related to these topics will be provided as a framework for the session, allowing us to focus on the most challenging topics. Finally, students will receive a challenging mock exam which, time permitting, we will solve together.
- The sessions include detailed, typeset notes, including a total for both sessions of >150 challenging practice problems. The notes include carefully-structured, colour-coded explanations so you can focus on understanding the material (instead of just frantically copying from the board), and you’ll have lots of time to actually attempt solving problems, to ensure that you’re able to apply your understanding to exam-level questions, and get immediate feedback. By the end of the sessions, you should feel confident about the sections you’ve mastered, and know exactly where to focus your efforts in the days leading up to the exam.
