Assignments:
 Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled
Basics.
July 13
 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 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.
July 13
(Because you should always read sections as we cover the material,
normally I do not post reading assignments.)
 Do this problem on truncation
error.
(requires Acrobat Reader)
July 15
 Section 0.7 – Polynomial Nested Form /
Truncation Error.
July 15
Recall that you should be forming your
teams of 4 for working the Programming Assignments.
(No more than 4 per team.) Your team may include students from either
of my two sections.
 Do all the examples in the second Maple tutorial entitled
Solutions of Equations.
July 17
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.
July 20
 Write the Maple code for the
Bisection Method.
July 21
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.
 Read and work all the examples in the 8th Maple tutorial entitled
Formatted Printing and Plot
Options.
July 22
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.
July 24
 Section 1.3 – Newton's Method.
July 27

Program Assignment 1.
Due Monday, August 10 at 1:20.
(posted July 28)
Read this
document before beginning this assignment.
 You should have the code for the bisection method and
Assignment 6 successfully completed before you attempt this.
 You should also study the pseudocode for false position
(assignment 8) and use formatted printing as explained in
Assignment 7.
 Section 1.5 – Fixed Point Method.
July 28
 Section 1.5(b) – Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
July 29
THE FINAL EXAM CONTENT BEGINS HERE. . .
 Section 3.2 – NewtonGregory Interpolating
Polynomials.
August 5
(covered Monday–Tuesday)
 Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
points.
August 10
You should rework Exam 1 immediately after it
is returned.
(Recall that a score below 64% is an F. See the course policy.)
 Sections 5.2 & 5.3 – Proper Integrals:
Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson's Rules.
August 12
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.
August 14
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.
August 14
We began this friday. I will finish it on do examples on Monday.
 Section 5.3: Simpson's – 3/8 Rule.
August 18
Recall that Assignment 15 is a running assignment.

Program Assignment 2.
Due Friday, August 28 (Week 7).
(Posted Wed., Aug.19)
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.
 Do all the examples in the third
Maple Tutorial entitled Derivatives and
Integrals.
August 19
 Section 5.6 – Gauss Quadrature.
August 19
 Section 5.1 – Numerical Differentiation.
August 26
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.
Start reading Chapter 6.
 Chapter 6 – Numerical Solutions of ODEs.
August 31
This is a running assignment.
BEWARE: The math faculty have observed that during the final 3
to 4 weeks of a term, 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 did not do the assigned homework), and they end up seriously 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.
September 1
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.
September 1
Don't forget that Assignment 23
is a running assignment.

crib sheet I will give you during the exam.
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.
