# 11. More Calculus with Python

Overview

In this chapter, you will learn how to calculate the length of a curve, given its equation. You'll be introduced to partial derivatives in three dimensions and how to use them to calculate the area of a surface. Following in the footsteps of the mathematicians of the Middle Ages, you'll use an infinite series to calculate constants such as pi and determine the interval of convergence of a series. Like the mathematicians and machine learning engineers of the modern day, you'll learn how to find the minimum point on a surface using partial derivatives. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to use calculus to solve a variety of mathematical problems.
