Additional Review Items for Final Exam Math 202 Chapter 17 1. Be able to work with functions of several variables and be able to evaluate such functions for specific values of the variable. Be able to picture a function of 2 variables of the form z = f ( x, y ) in a 3 dimensional xyz coordinate system by finding intercepts or using ‘traces.’ 2. Given a function z = f ( x, y ), be able to take partial derivatives with respect to x and y . Be able to work with all notation that represents such partial derivatives. Understand that a partial derivative with respect to

Unformatted text preview: x represents the slope of a line tangent to a 2 dimensional curve formed in the plane y = y . Understand that a partial derivative with respect to y represents the slope of a line tangent to a 2 dimensional curve formed in the plane x = x . 3. Be able to take partial derivatives of a function in more than 2 variables. For example, be able to find partial derivatives of w = f ( x, y, z ). 4. Be able to take higher order partial derivatives. 5. Be able to evaluate a partial derivative at a specific point....
