### NOTES:

1. It is suggested that Maple labs be collected two weeks after they are
assigned.

2. Section 11.6, on quadric surfaces, is listed with a question mark
in Lecture 6, since Maple Lab 2 covers this material, producing
far better drawings than most lecturers can produce. The question mark
suggests that class time not be spent on this section, but
that students be asked to read it in conjunction with the lab.

3. Coverage of Section 11.10, on cylindrical and spherical coordinates,
is deferred until it is needed, that is, just before the treatment of
triple integrals in those coordinate systems.

4. Coverage of section 13.6 on surface area is delayed, so that
it comes just before surface area of parametric surfaces.
Instructors running behind the syllabus should consider omitting
sections 13.6, 14.6.
