Each evening exam is worth 100 points. The final exam is worth 250 points. Classwork, including quizzes, homework, and any work your instructor may assign, is worth 100 points. Your Maple assignments will be worth 50 points. As explained in the next section, Maple is a powerful mathematical software that we will use in this course.

**Maple Assignments**

Maple is a powerful computer algebra system that can perform the most complicated calculations and draw spectacular graphics at the touch of the button. Knowledge of software like Maple should help you in your future professional career as well as in understanding material in calculus.

There will be help with Maple available at one or more of the URI computer labs. The hours and names of people who will be helping you will be posted on this page as soon as they are scheduled. We will also set up a system that will allow you to submit your Maple homework electronically.
