## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,

Soon I'm planning to restudy calculus to learn it to a better extend. Therefore, I'll start a course in coursera "Calculus-Single Variable" (https://www.coursera.org/course/calcsing), and besides that I already have the Thomas Calculus 10th edition so my plan is to study from this book either. However I'm curious about one thing. On this book, there are many chapters that are not being covered in the coursera course, such as "vectors in the plane and polar functions" or "vectors and motion in space". Are these chapters a part of multivariable calculus, or it's just Thomas Calculus is a more extensive book that covers lots of topics that are not covered in calculus.

Thank you very much and have a great day.
