# Mathematics for GIS Engineers II

7.5 ECTS credits

Single-variable calculus: Differentiation of products, quotients and compositions of elementary functions. Applications, such as construction of curves, extreme value problems, and related rates.

Mean Value Theorem and Taylor's Formula. Least-squares approximations.

Multi-variable calculus: partial derivative, directional derivative and

gradient, extreme value problems and Taylor's Formula.

Plane geometry: Chord Theorem, Bisector Proposition, Heron's Formula and repetition of upper secondary school geometry. Conic sections.

Spherical geometry: Polar coordinates in three dimensions and vector

geometry applied on the surface of the earth viewed as an idealized sphere.
