- Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled
- 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.
(Because you should always read sections as we cover the material,
normally I do not post reading assignments.)
- Do this problem on truncation error. (pdf document)
- Section 0.7
Polynomials: Nested Form (Horner's Method).
Since the use of Maple is required in this course, you should be
finished with Assignment 1 by now.
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.
Read Section 1.1 on the Bisection Method (Interval Halving).
- Do all the examples in the second Maple tutorial entitled
Solutions of Equations.
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.
- Write the Maple code for the
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.
- 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
Then change your Maple code for the bisection method so that it uses
From now on we will use the
printf command for printing.
On Friday I will ask what your teams are.
Try as hard as possible to have 4 members. (More than 4 is not allowed.)
I reserve the option to shuffle people around if necessary.
Members of your team may come from any of my two sections.
- Section 1.2(a) False Position.
- Section 1.3 Newton's Method.

document before beginning this assignment.
Here is a picture of the
22° ice halo.
- 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
- Here are some of the results
you should obtain in Part I.
Do NOT proceed until Part I works correctly.
- Section 1.5 Fixed Point Method.
- Section 1.5(b) Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
EXAM 1 CONTENT ENDS HERE. . .
Here is the Crib Sheet
that I will provide you during the exam.
It may include anything from Assignment 1 through 12.

- Section 3.2 Newton-Gregory Interpolating
- Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
Facie (noun) \'fā cē, 'fay
pl. facies \'fā cēz, 'fay
First Known Use of FACIE – 16:34 UTC,
October 12, 2014 by Kevin G. TeBeest, Michigan USA
- 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.
Formerly: "profile photo" (archaic)
Usage: Professor TeBeest sent a photo of himself playing his
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,"
MerriamWebster); 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.
