Examples

I recognize words such as "laplacian" from electromagnetics, but really only have a vague understanding of the actual concepts.

Add at least one main problem on each of: double integral, triple integral (ideally in polar coordinates), find a gradient, recognize a parametric surface from its descriptions, find the laplacian of a function given in spherical coordinates, langrange multiplier problem
