Maple in Math 244
General information and help
- Introduction to Maple (Prof. Greenfield). This is a good starting place if you have not used Maple before.
- Maple help pages (Lara Pudwell). They were written with Math 251 students in mind, but should be helpful for all.
Maple information for Math 244
- An introduction to Maple features relevant to differential equations, with a worksheet illustrating these features. These documents are based on those prepared for earlier semesters by Professor R. Bumby.
Getting help from other students
- Just as with other homework assignments, it is permissible and helpful to discuss Maple labs with other students. However, the Maple lab reports that you turn in are being graded and will be part of your final course grade. As with all such work, the printed form of the worksheet is expected to be the work of the student who submits it. In particular, the projects include questions that involve your interpretation of results of Maple's computation. Text comments that contain your answers to these questions are expected to reflect your individual understanding of the topic.
Links to Maple labsYour Maple labs should have a title, your name, and your section number at the top. They should be stapled.
