Office Hours: MWF, 10:00 -- 10:50;Homework: Homework will be assigned, collected, graded and mostly will

involve the use of a computer.

Maple Labs: Students will work in teams of 2(not 3) to complete the labs using Maple, some purely computational hand calculation. Approx 4 labs worth 5 points each will be given for a total of 20 points..

Tests: There will be 3 tests and a semi-cumulative final exam, each test will be worth 50 points and the final exam 75 points for a total of 225 points.

90% or higher A

75% -- 89.99% at least a B

60% -- 74.99% at least a C

(all calculations are done to two decimal places)The goal of this course is to abstract from one variable

( two dimensional calculus) to two variables

( three dimensional calculus). We will study

the same concepts as before but in 3 dimensions.
