__Mathematica Projects:__

In this course we will use Mathematica computer algebra system (CAS), which is available in computer
labs at URI. The Mathematica projects are created to help you learn new concepts. Mathematica 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.
