### Homework Assignments

All assignments are from Multivariable Calculus from Graphical,Numerical, and Symbolic Points of View, Revised Preliminary Edition by Ostebee and Zorn. Remember,
 The text believes that you can think. There will not be an example worked exactly like every homework problem.

Note: The spotlight problems in given in bold italic.

### About the graphic at the top of this page

This is the graph of the function f(x,y) = (x2 + y2) sin(x) cos(y). I generated the plot in Maple V, Release 5 using the command
`plot3d((x^2+y^2)*sin(x)*cos(y),x = -4 .. 4,y = -4 .. 4); `
Several of the fun things we'll do this semester is learn how to find the maximum and minimum values of functions of two variables like this and how to find the tangent plane to the surface at any point.
