Maple is a great tool for visualizing multivariable calculus concepts as
most of the time their geometrical interpretation is in the 3D
space. Below are links to a couple of Maple worksheets that will help you get started
with Maple for multivariable calculus.
Each Maple worksheet is posted in two forms: as an interactive worksheet
with the extension 'mw', say, graphs_m12.mw, and in the non-interactive
'html' form. The 'mw' worksheets have been created in Maple 12 so you may
not be able to open them in earlier versions of Maple.
To download an interactive worksheet, right-click on it, go to 'Save Link As' and
save it with the extension 'mw', say, 'graphs_m12.mw'. Or left-click on it
and save what ever opens as say, 'graphs_m12.mw'. Once you save a 'mw' file,
open it in Maple.
Illness Due to Flu
The H1N1 Flu Pandemic may impact classes this semester. If any of us develop flu-like symptoms,
we are being advised to stay home until the fever has subsided for 24 hours. So, if you exhibit
such symptoms, please do not come to class. Notify your instructor of your status via email, and we will work together to ensure
that course instruction and work is completed for the semester.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have posted simple methods to avoid transmission of
illness. These include: covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; frequently
washing your hands to protect from germs; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when
you are sick. For more information, please
