The workshop will focus on using Maple in multivariable calculus, although the concepts and methods can also apply to other courses. No knowledge of Maple will be assumed --just bring a positive attitude about using computer software in the classroom.
The workshop will meet live online for three hours each day, broken into 2 one-and-a-half-hour sessions. Prior to the workshop, participants are expected to complete a short tutorial (provided by the presenters) on the basics of Maple. During the workshop, Maple worksheets will be examined and discussed. Participants will work through these worksheets and discuss how they can help mathematics students comprehend multivariable calculus concepts. By the end of the week, groups of participants will develop and present worksheets of their own. An electronic network will be set up for the participants that offers a platform for discussions on using software in multivariable calculus.
