Assignments:
 Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled
Basics.
April 4
 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 after
they are posted to help you prepare for the programming assignments.
 There may be Maple related questions on exams
(see the course policy).
Kettering has made Maple amply available on many PCs throughout the AB.
Read Sections 0.1, 0.4, and 0.6.
April 4
(Because you should always read sections as we cover the material,
normally I do not post reading assignments.)
I will post the next assignment on Thursday.
 Do this problem on truncation error. (pdf document)
April 7
 Section 0.7 –
Polynomials: Nested Form (Horner's Method).
April 7
 Do all the examples in the second Maple tutorial entitled
Solutions of Equations.
April 8
You should complete Assignment 1 before doing this one.
Remember that these assignments will acquaint (or reacquaint)
you with Maple and prepare you for the programming assignments.
 Section 1.1 – Bisection Method.
April 11
 Write the Maple code for the
Bisection Method.
April 13
NOTE: Do this immediately, and play with the code by changing the
starting interval, the tolerance, even the function. You will use this
code as the template for writing the codes for other methods and for our
first programming assignment.
(April 13, 1743 was Thomas Jefferson's birthday. He and John Adams died
within mere hours of one another on July 4, 1826 — the 50th anniversary
of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.)
 Afer writing the Maple code for the bisection method, read and work through
all the examples in the 8th Maple tutorial entitled
Formatted Printing and Plot
Options.
April 14
Then change your Maple code for the bisection method so that it uses
formatted printing.
From now on we will use the
printf command for printing.
 Section 1.2(a) – False Position.
April 14
 Section 1.3 – Newton's Method.
April 15
 Section 1.5 – Fixed Point Method.
April 18
 Section 1.5(b) – Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
April 21

Program Assignment 1.
Due Mon., May 2 at 1:20.
(posted April 22)
Read this
document before beginning this assignment.
 You should have
Assignments 6 & 7 successfully completed before you attempt this.
 You should also study the pseudocode for Newton's method
(assignment 9) and use formatted printing as explained in
Assignment 7.
 Here are some of the results
you should obtain in Part I.
Do NOT proceed until Part I works correctly.

 Section 3.2 – NewtonGregory Interpolating
Polynomials.
April 28
Here are some of the results
you should obtain in Part I of Program Assignment 1.
Do NOT proceed until Part I works correctly.
 Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
points.
May 2
 Sections 5.2 & 5.3 – Proper Integrals:
Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson's Rules.
May 4
Note: This is a running assignment — do the problems on
this sheet as we cover the material.
 Write the Maple code for the trapezoidal rule.
May 4
NOTE: Do this immediately, and play with the code by changing the
number of subintervals, the limits of integration, even the integrand
f(x).
You will use this code as the template (model) for writing the codes for
other methods and for the second programming assignment.
 Section 5.3: Simpson's – 1/3 Rule.
May 5
Recall that Assignment 15 is a running assignment.
 Do all the examples in the third
Maple Tutorial entitled
Derivatives and Integrals.
May 5
 Section 5.3: Simpson's – 3/8 Rule.
May 6
 Section 5.6 – Gauss Quadrature.
May 11

Program Assignment 2.
Due Monday, May 23 (Week 8).
(Posted Wed., May 12)
Here are the abscissas and weights for the
10 point Gauss quadrature.
You should have the trapezoidal rule code (see Assignment 16)
running properly before you attempt this program assignment.
Read this document before
beginning this assignment.
 Section 5.1 – Numerical Differentiation.
May 16
You should rework Exam 2 immediately after it is returned.
(Recall that a score below 64% is failing. See the course policy.)
I posted updated estimates of your midterm course grade on BannerWeb and on
the bottom of page 1 of your exam.
Start reading Chapter 6.
 Chapter 6 – Numerical Solutions of ODEs.
May 23
This is a running assignment.
 Chapter 6 (a) – Implicit Euler Method.
May 23
BEWARE: The math faculty regularly observe that during the final 3
to 4 weeks of a term, many students tend 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 our final exam (because
they did not do the assigned homework), and they end up significantly
lowering their
course grade. Remember that the final exam is worth 30% 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.
 Write this
Maple code for Euler's Method.
May 25
NOTE: Do this immediately, and play with the code by changing the
nodal stepsize, the interval endpoints, the IC, even the ODE. Use it to
check your work on some of the homework problems.
You will use this code as the template (model) for writing the codes for
other methods and for the third project.
Review the Maple tutorial entitled
Formatted Printing and
Plot Options.

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
ones own body or part of the body, usually due to vanity.
The photo on a driving license is an example of a facie, although
it is not a selfie.
