This course will revisit the fundamental ideas of calculus, especially calculus of several variables, at greater depth, and will make connections with other mathematical areas as well as with problems in physics and engineering.

We will cover most of chapters 1 through 4 during the first semester, with Chapter 1 mainly a review. Problems will be assigned in class with periodic problem sets to be handed in. The problems chosen will generally not be the simple calculations you were asked to do in MTH 243. There will also be some problems to be solved using Maple.

The text has an on-line supplement that you can access via the following link. There will be some readings assigned from the "Internet Supplement."

__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 me at 874-4436 or mkulenovic@mail.uri.edu
of your status, and we will communicate through the medium we have established
for the class.
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 view www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm.
URI information on the H1N1 will be posted on the URI website at www.uri.edu/news/H1N1,
with links to the www.cdc.gov site.
