  • There will be two hour quizzes and each will be distributed at the beginning of the given lab period and collected at the end of the lab period.  You can use the textbook, your notes, the computer, Maple, or any other inanimate source to answer the questions but have to complete it individually. The questions will be related to the concepts and techniques addressed in previous labs.
  • Projects are longer collections of related questions that can be answered with the skills and knowledge learned in the labs and lectures for this course. A project report will generally be due at the beginning of the next lab period. There will be two projects.
  • Tutors, Helps, and Assistants can be accessed from the respective menus on the Maple 12 graphical user interface. The Tutors marked with [PreC] are found under the PreCalculus submenu; those marked with [C-SV] and [C-MV] can be found under the Calculus - Single Variable and Calculus - Multiple Variable submenus, respectively.
