### NOTES:

1. It is suggested that Maple labs be collected two weeks after they are
assigned.

2. Chapter 8 on numerical methods has been moved up, because some
of the Maple labs rely on the use of numerical methods and it is helpful
if the students have some idea about what they are.

3. Chapter 5 on series solutions has been moved to the end of the semester.
