Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra for General Education

In the academic year 2009/2009, decisions had to be made which courses would pass the transition from the "Core" to "General Education". We had to write proposals stating why our courses would qualify. Below are some problems and handouts which I contributed to to make the case for multivariable and linear algebra.
