Assignments will be posted below
AS we cover the material.
- 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 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.)
- Repeat the example I worked in class but pretend you are a 3-digit
- Do this problem on truncation error.
(requires Acrobat Reader)
- Section 0.7 Polynomial Nested Form /
Since the use of Maple is required in this course, you should be
finished with Assignment 1 by now.
Read Sections 1.1 and 1.2. Also play with Maple.
- 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 Bisection Method.
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.
Then change your Maple code for the bisection method so that it uses
From now on we will use the
printf command for printing.
- Section 1.2(a) False Position.
- Section 1.3 Newton's Method.
- Section 1.5 Fixed Point Method.
- Section 1.5(b) Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
THE FINAL EXAM CONTENT BEGINS HERE. . .
- Section 3.2 Newton-Gregory Interpolating
- Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
- Sections 5.2 & 5.3 Proper Integrals:
Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson's Rules.
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.
NOTE: Do this immediately, and play with the code by changing the
number of subintervals, the limits of integration, even the integrand
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.
- Section 5.3: Simpson's 3/8
Program Assignment 2.
Due Wednesday, Nov. 19 (Week 7).
Posted Nov. 8
You should have the trapezoidal rule code (see Assignment 17)
running properly before you attempt this program assignment.
You will use it as a template (model) for this project.
Read this document before
beginning this assignment.
Recall that Assignment 16 is a running assignment.
- Do all the examples in the third
entitled Derivatives and Integrals.
- Section 5.6 Gauss Quadrature.
- Section 5.1 Numerical Differentiation.
- Chapter 6 (a) Implicit Euler Method.
- Chapter 6 Numerical Solutions of ODEs.
This is a running assignment.
- Write this
Maple code for
NOTE: Do this immediately, and play with the code by changing
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
other methods and for the third project.
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 worth
30% of the course grade, so make sure you continue to study and do all the
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

Printing and Plot Options.
Don't forget that Assignment 25
is a running assignment.
Program Assignment 3.
Due Thursday, December 11 (Week 10) at 1:20.
Posted November 30.
Also read this document Programming Requirements.
Here are the formulas for the

sample problem in Part I.
- Section 6.3: Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg
and Runge-Kutta-Verner Methods.
- Additional Programs for Solving IVPs.
- Section 2.1 Matrix Introduction.
- Section 2.2 Gauss Elimination.
On Friday I will finish the example I started on Thursday.
(You could actually finish it yourself as there is little left to do.)
- Section 2.2(b) LU Decomposition.
- Read and do these Maple
examples for solving a system of linear equations.
- Determinants and ExistenceUniqueness of Solutions.
- Section 2.2(d) Homogeneous Systems.
Have you read the information about
our final exam under the Announcements at the top of this web page?
Nineteen (19) of 62 students (31%) worked Opportunity 3 correctly.
I will return them tomorrow (Friday). If you worked
it correctly, then I will have you return it to me immediately
(to avoid having some of you forget to bring it with you to the final exam).

Facie (noun) \'fā cē, 'fay
pl. facies \'fā cēz, 'fay

- 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
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.

Start using it in conversations and online and explain it when they ask you
what it means. It's fun!
