A laboratory to investigate ways in which the
computer can help in understanding the calculus and
in dealing with problems whose solutions involve calculus.
No programming required; a variety of existing
programs will be used. Prerequisite or corequisite for
Mathematics 235: Mathematics 225 (Calc 3);
There is no textbook required for this course.
Information about the Math/CS Computer Labs is Here.
This includes how to remotely log into the lab, change your password, etc.

Week 1: Jan 17/19, 2017
Week 2: Jan 24/26, 2017
This week, we do a bit more in Latex and we introduce Maple. In Latex,
we figure out how to insert a figure and how to set up a label and reference
that label in our document.
Week 3: Jan 31/Feb 2, 2017
This week, we will look at more plotting options in Maple, then
write a short document in LaTeX using our results.
Week 4: Feb 7/9, 2017
This week- More on Maple. We'll start the lab on biorhythms.
Week 5: Feb 14/16, 2017
This week, we'll continue writing up the solutions to the biorhythms lab.
Week 6: Feb 21 (A) and Mar 2 (B)
This week, we will look at more Maple commands- In particular, we'll
work through discussions of (1) Curves and Surfaces, and (2) Limits
and Derivatives, and then there is a set of 6 exercises to solve using
Maple. You may, as usual, work in groups. Due: Before our next class
Week 7: Feb 28 (A) and Mar 9 (B), (Midsemester)
For the next two weeks, we'll be looking at the theorem from
Calculus III known as ``Clairaut's Theorem''. This first week,
we'll get some background questions answered. Next week, we'll work
on our writing.
Week 8: Mar 7 (A) and Mar 30 (B)
Continue working on Clairaut's Theorem. This week, really focus on your writing! Your
paper is due before our next class session.
Week 9: Mar 28 (A) and Apr 6 (B)
General Note: For the last 5 weeks of class, we'll spend 2.5 class days
on the lab starting this week, and the last 2.5 class days looking
at a LaTeX add-on called ``Beamer''.
Week 10: Apr 4 (A) and Apr 13 (B)
Week 11: Apr 18/20, 2017
Week 12: Apr 25/27, 2017
