The typical multivariate calculus course begins with a unit on vectors, lines and planes, material that serves as an introduction to the linear geometry of R³. This webinar will provide solutions for a number of typical, and not-so-typical problems in the "lines-and-planes" section of the calculus course. The problems will be solved with a suite of commands in the Student MultivariateCalculus package, commands specifically designed to handle manipulations of lines and planes in R³. In addition, these problems will also be solved in a syntax-free way via the Context Menu system because the relevant commands have been completely incorporated into that environment.
