Calclabs with Mathematica: Multivariable Calculus

Paperback
Over the past two decades the wide availability of powerful computational software such as Mathematica has had a significant effect upon the way calculus is taught and learned. Remarkably, computations that would have been extraordinary just a few years ago--and certainly unimaginable in the times of Newton, Gauss, and Riemann--can be done easily with a computer and Mathematica. The primary goal of this manual is to show students how Mathematica can help them learn and use calculus. The approach is to use Mathematica as a tool for exploring calculus concepts and the way calculus can be used to solve problems.
