Multivariable Calculus: Applications and Theory
by Kenneth Kuttler
Publisher: Brigham Young University 2011
Number of pages: 466
This book presents the necessary linear algebra and then uses it as a framework upon which to build multivariable calculus. This is not the usual approach in beginning courses but it is the correct approach, leaving open the possibility that at least some students will learn and understand the topics presented.

A textbok on elementary multivariable calculus, the covered topics: vector algebra, lines, planes, surfaces, vector-valued functions, functions of 2 or 3 variables, partial derivatives, optimization, multiple, line and surface integrals.
by Paul Dawkins - Lamar University
These lecture notes should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus III or needing a refresher in some of the topics from the class. The notes assume a working knowledge of limits, derivatives, integration, parametric equations, vectors.
The textbook guides students through the core concepts of calculus. Volume 3 covers parametric equations and polar coordinates, vectors, functions of several variables, multiple integration, and second-order differential equations.

Starts with linear algebra, then proceeds to introductory multivariate calculus, including existence theorems connected to completeness, integration, the Stokes theorem, a chapter on differential manifolds, exterior differential forms, etc.
