Calculus III: Complete Set of Lessons
https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4740&ref=Feed
A collection of 37 worksheets for 3rd semester (multivariable calculus). Developed by Fr. Mike May and Dr. Russell Blyth, St. Louis University. Topics include introductory worksheets, multivariable limits, bivariate Taylor series, Lagrange multipliers, vector and gradient fields, visualizing regions of integration, line and flux integrals.
At Saint Louis University, our Calculus III course is being taught in a computer classroom where the students have access to Maple.
The strategy I have used for bringing Maple into the classroom is to introduce it through carefully designed worksheets, which I use as:
- Lecture aids with the instructor running the worksheet with a projection system.
- Handouts for the students
- Lab assignment that the class will start together as a substitute for a lecture.
- Supplemental homework assignments.
These worksheets include a significant amount of exploratory text and exercises. The exercises ask the student to repeat the examples in the worksheets with minor modification. I do not expect them to produce the code, but rather to copy and modify a code template, focusing on the results of the problems.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=4740/calcIII.gif" alt="Calculus III: Complete Set of Lessons" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>A collection of 37 worksheets for 3rd semester (multivariable calculus).

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4003&ref=Feed
The discriminant test for local extrema of functions in two variables often has the sense of a majic formula to be memorized without understanding. A better context for understanding is given if we review the process of rotation of axes to eliminate the cross term from a quadratic function. (If the cross term is zero, it is clear by inspection if a quadratic function has a minimum, maximum, or saddle point.)
