Assignments:
 Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled
Basics.
April 6
 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.
April 6
(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)
April 8
 Section 0.7 – Polynomial Nested Form /
Truncation Error.
April 9
 Section 0.7 – Polynomial Nested Form.
April 9
Since the use of Maple is required in this course, you should be
finished with Assignment 1 by now.
 Section 1.1 – Bisection Method.
April 10
(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.)
 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.
 Do 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 15
 Do all the examples in the second Maple tutorial entitled
Solutions of Equations.
April 16
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 1.3 – Newton's Method.
April 16
 Section 1.5 – Fixed Point Method.
April 17

Program Assignment 1.
Due Thursday, April 30 at the beginning of class.
(posted April 18)
Read this
document before beginning this assignment.
Here is a picture of the
22° ice halo.
 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.
 Here are some of the results
you should obtain in Part I.
Do NOT proceed until Part I works correctly.
 Section 1.5(b) – Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
April 22

 Section 3.2 – NewtonGregory Interpolating
Polynomials.
April 27
(covered Wednesday–Friday)
 Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
points.
April 29
 Sections 5.2 & 5.3 – Proper Integrals:
Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson's Rules.
May 1
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 4
 Section 5.3: Simpson's – 3/8 Rule.
May 6
Recall that Assignment 16 is a running assignment.

Program Assignment 2 is posted on BlackBoard.
Due Wednesday, May 20 (Week 7).
(Posted Wed., May 6)
You should have the trapezoidal rule code (see Assignment 17)
running properly before you attempt this program assignment.
Read this document before
beginning this assignment.

a rotating turbine rotor created using Maple.
 Do all the examples in the third
Maple Tutorial entitled Derivatives and
Integrals.
May 7
 Section 5.6 – Gauss Quadrature.
May 8
 Section 5.1 – Numerical Differentiation.
May 13
 Chapter 6 – Numerical Solutions of ODEs.
May 20
This is a running assignment.
 Chapter 6 (a) – Implicit Euler Method.
May 21
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.
May 22
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.

Don't forget that Assignment 24
is a running assignment.
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 your state driving license is an example of a facie, although
it is not a selfie.
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!
