An Introduction to Multivariable Calculus


We will be using Maple as a symbolic calculator. We'll also borrow Maple notation for displaying formulas. For a quick introduction to the basics of Maple read Maple: An Introduction (PostScript). A short (html) file describing the use of Maple in linear algebra is Linear Algebra Using Maple by Victoria Bush. For Maple information and Maple resources around the Net check the entry point at The Massachusets Institute of Technology.
