Differential Calculus through Data and Modeling Specialization
Learn differentiable Calculus through modelling. Master differentiation techniques for common single and multivariable functions to apply to optimization problems.
What you will learn
Model data with both single and multivariable functions
Find maximum and minimum values of both single and multivariable functions, with and without constraints, to find optimal solutions to problems.
Understand properties of different types of functions to apply them accordingly to model different situations.
Perform operations of differential calculus, such as finding velocity, acceleration, rates of change, and slopes of tangent lines.

About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
In each module, learners will be provided with solved sample problems that they can use to build their skills and confidence followed by graded quizzes to demonstrate what they've learned. Through a cumulative project, students will apply their skills to model the cost of a construction project through a real topographical terrain with the goal of finding the optimal cost to complete the project given certain constraints.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
