course, no matter what, one should cover the first four chapters, up to the law of conservation of energy, which provides a beautiful application of the chain rule in a physical context, and ties up the mathematics of this course with standard material from courses on physics. Then there are roughly two possibilities: One is to cover Chapters V and VI on maxima and minima, quadratic forms, critical points, and Taylor's formula. One can then finish with Chapter IX on double integration to round off the one-term course. The other is to go into curve integrals, double integration, and Green's theorem, that is Chapters VII, VIII, IX, and X, 1. This forms a coherent whole.
