MTH 243 is a third calculus course, with the focus on functions of 2,3, or more variables and the extensions of the ideas of elementary calculus to higher dimension.

We will continue to use Maple V Release 5 in this course. The Maple software is available in the campus computer labs. It can also be purchased from the RI Book Company at the Kingston Emporium at a special highly discounted price for use on your own personal computer. Our work with Maple will be organized into Maple Worksheets that you can download from the web site and which are also available in the campus computer labs. You will find more information below.

Exams and Evaluation

There will be three exams given outside of class, on Mon evenings at 6:00-7:30 PM, on Oct 4, Nov 8 and Dec 6. A comprehensive final exam will be given during the regular final exam period. Locations will be announced in class. The exams will count 100 points each, the final 200 points, and 200 points will be based on work your instructor assigns in class. This will include Maple worksheets and may include collected homework, quizzes, or special projects.

Maple Worksheets for MTH 243

Help with Maple is available at the Memorial Union computer lab, room 313, every Monday 2 p.m. - 6 p.m., and Tuesday 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. Look for a sign and Jesse Poulin will be there to help you.
