*Note:*The notes are often incomplete, I haven't written up notes on all the topics, and the notes are often different from what I do in class. They're provided in case you find them useful.

These are handouts from class. Often they summarize material from the notes.

- Vectors and dot products (1-23-2018)
- Matrices and determinants (1-25-2018)
- Cross products (1-26-2018)

You'll need some software to plot surfaces for a couple of the problem sets, and you may find it useful in checking your work. While there are many software packages you could use, I'll support two: *Mathematica* and *maxima*.

- Getting a
*Mathematica*license and installing the software - From MU Information Technology - The
*maxima*project page - Get information or download a version for your machine.

After getting the software, use one of the tutorials below.

- Mathematica tutorial - Use this if you're using
*Mathematica*for surface graphing - maxima tutorial - Use this if you're using
*maxima*for surface graphing

Problem Sets are due by the end of class on the days listed below (and on the problem sheets. You don't need to print out the problem sheets (but you may if you wish); you can do the work on the problem sheets or on separate pieces of paper. (Staple everything together, please.) Be sure you've attempted at least the required number of problems to receive credit.

*[Tuesday, February 6]* There was a typo in Problem 6 of P.S. 9. (There were two parts labelled "(b)"; the parts should have been "(a), (b), (c)".) It has been corrected in the copy linked below. The content of the problems hasn't changed, so if you used the old problem sheet that's okay.

Solutions to the problem sets will be posted after the problem sets have been collected.

Review Sheets are to help you study. They are not sample tests. The presence of a problem on a review sheet does not mean there will be a problem like it on the test. And there may be test problems which are not like review sheet problems.

*If you're having personal problems:* Please consider seeing Counseling Services. They're on the 3^{rd} floor of Lyle Hall; they're free and confidential, and they've helped many of my students. It's natural to want to fix things yourself, but if your problems are causing you to miss class, to get behind in courses, or to get poor grades, it's best to get help.
