This is a new course on the use of the symbolic
manipulation language MAPLE to solve a variety of mathematical problems in linear algebra, calculus
and differential equations. Intended for second year students expecting to take a degree in
Mathematics. A basic introduction to numerical mathematics and to computational tools useful in a
variety of mathematics courses. Basic problems of numerical computation; using computer algebra
systems; plotting; solution of nonlinear equations; numerical integration; series.
Eventually, all of the lab materials;
lessons (provided by Dr. Robert Israel),
lessons (provided by Sjerve),
marks , and
announcements , will be accessible from this
Here is the course outline.
