Summary: We present an efficient teachinglearning tool for multivariate integral calculus. The tool, consisting of a set of PowerPoint slides with Maple animation and interactive Maplets, is developed to help instructors to teach in class and students to learn more effectively. More specifically, the PowerPoint slides with Maple animation help instructors to explain mathematical concepts and methods more effectively and clearly via graphic visualization; while the interactive Maplets provide students with facilities for selfplanned learning and selfassessment. Our investigation shows that the use of the tool significantly improves students' learning outcomes, in particular, the conceptual understanding of multivariate integral calculus.
