**Course Information**

**Introduction
**This is the third
calculus course for students of engineering, mathematics, science and
other areas of study that require a strong mathematical background. In
MTH 243 we will cover coordinates for space vector geometry, partial
derivatives,
directional derivatives, extrema, and multiple integrals.

**How
to Succeed in MTH 243 - Summer session
**

- Spend about 10 hours per week, outside of class, working problems, reading the text, and working on Maple Projects. Sometime during the first week of class, set up your weekly schedule so that specific days and times are reserved for working out math problems.
- Buy a notebook where you will write solutions to all the recommended problems.
- Save all quizzes, handouts, and any other work. Use them to prepare yourself for tests.
- Establish a group of fellow students to work with.
- Come to class
every time! Skipping class, even only a couple of times, will
translate into a lower course grade.

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.

**Evaluation
**The course grade
will be computed as follows:

Key: **E1** =
Exam 1, **E2** =
Exam 2, **FE** =
Final Exam, **MP** =
2
Maple/Modeling Projects, **Q** =
Quizzes.

**Maple Information
**We will use the
software Maple in this course. The Maple software is available in most
computer
labs at both URI

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
scheduled.
There is a system that will allow you to submit your *Maple*
homework
electronically.
