and the extensions of the ideas of elementary calculus to higher
dimension. We will continue to use Maple V in this course.
The Maple software is available in the campus computer labs. Our
work with Maple will be organized into Maple projects that
you can download from this web site, or will be handed to you
in class.

Evaluation
There will be two exams

At least 50% of the Final Exam will consist of questions on the
material discussed after the second exam.
