 Do not use the shortcut menu buttons in the left
panel of Maple. Rather, manually type the commands as
they appear in the Maple examples.
 You should work all assigned Maple examples immediately to
help you prepare for the Maple assignments.
 There also may be Maple related questions on exams.
Kettering has made Maple amply available on many PCs throughout the AB.

Only 5 students (17%) worked Opportunity 2 correctly. Remember that there
will be a problem like it on Exam 2! I urge you to make passing each
Opportunity
a VERY HIGH priority! Remember that if you pass the Opportunity, you will
have
fewer problems to work on the exam!

BEWARE: The math faculty have observed that during the final 3
to 4 weeks of a term, especially around and after Thanksgiving,
many students have a tendency to: 1) skip class more, and 2) let
their studies in math courses slide as they complete term projects or term
papers in other courses. Be careful not to do that! I often
see students leave entire pages blank on the final exam (indicating that
they probably did not do the assigned homework), and they end up
seriously hurt their course grade. Remember that the final exam is
comprehensive and is worth
28% of the course grade, so make sure you continue to study and do all the
assigned homework.
Also, realize that one purpose of a final exam is so you can show that you
have
mastered a concept that you might have scored poorly on in one of the exams.
So view the final exam as an opportunity to raise rather than lower
your
course grade.
Facie (noun) \'fā • cē, 'fay
• see\
pl. facies \'fā • cēz, 'fay •
seez\ :
 an image of one's face taken by oneself or by another person using a
digital camera or phone,
especially for posting on social networking
sites or smartphones for personal identification.
 a photo ID showing only the face.
First Known Use of FACIE – 16:34 UTC,
October 12, 2014 by Kevin G. TeBeest, Michigan USA
Formerly: "profile photo" (archaic)
Usage: Professor TeBeest sent a photo of himself playing his
drums
to his brother who wanted a photo ID for his smartphone.
The brother whined saying, "Send me a photo of your ugly face you stupid. .
.!"
So Professor TeBeest sent his brother a facie.
Etymology: French façade
("a false, superficial, or artificial appearance or effect,"
Merriam–Webster); Italian facciata, a derivative of
faccia ("front"), from Latin facies ("face");
Geographical Use: worldwide
Not to be confused with selfie, which is a photo taken by oneself of
one's own body or part of the body, usually due to vanity.
The photo on your state driving license is an example of a facie.
Inform your friends and family! Let's make it go viral.
Start using it in conversations and online and explain it when they ask you
what it means. It's fun!
Remember that:
 You are responsible for successfully completing all assigned
problems in all your courses.
 The exams may include problems similar to these assignments and
lecture examples and may include questions about Maple.
 We must maintain a steady pace to cover the material
that constitutes Math203. If you have difficulty with a section, be
sure to see me for help immediately.
 No matter how simple a topic appears when you see my examples or read
the text, you will almost certainly have difficulty completing an
exam if you do not practice the examples and do the assignments
beforehand.
Tutors are available in the SARC (AB 3341) and at various other places and times.
