MTH243 (Calculus for Functions of Several Variables with Maple)
Computer Algebra Projects:
In this course we will use computer algebra system (CAS) Maple, which is not available in computer labs at URI---it should be purchased separately. The Maple projects are created to help you learn new concepts. It is an essential part of WileyPlus, Matlab, and Mathcad. Maple is very useful in visualizing graphs and surfaces in three dimensions. Matlab (commercial software) is also available at engineeering labs. Its free version is called Octave. A student can also use free CASs: SymPy (based on Python), Maxima, or Sage. We follow the standard textbook "Multivariable Calculus" (6th edition) by McCallum, Hughes-Hallett, Gleason et al.
