Matrix derivatives: A diagrammatic notation for multivariable calculus
We introduce a new powerful teaching notation for multivariable calculus that produces compact formulas virtually identical to single-variable ones. The notation is meant to emphasize the structure of multivariable calculus, freeing students to concentrate on more difficult concepts. Thus, it has the potential to increase simultaneously the amount and depth at which material is taught.
