Goals and Objectives.
The goals are to have you develop symbol manipulation skills, mathematical modelling skills, skills in the use of technology to treat mathematical problems that involve the concepts of vector geometry, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, extrema, and multiple integrals. an understanding of the language of calculus, and an appreciation for the uses of calculus in the sciences.
The course grade will be computed as follows:
Key: E1 =
Exam 1, E2 =
Exam 2, FE =
Final Exam, MP =
Maple/Modeling Projects, Q =
We will use the software Maple in this course. The Maple software is available in most computer labs at both URI 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.
Our work with Maple will be organized into Maple Worksheets. You will be able to download the worksheets from this web page at any of the URI computer labs or to your home computer if you have a personal copy of Maple. Student Edition of Maple is readily available at bookstores and over the Internet. The student edition is reasonably priced and you may choose to purchase it for your convenience. .
There will be help with Maple available
at one 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
There is a system that will allow you to submit your Maple
