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.)
Recall that you should be forming your teams of
3 for working the Programming Assignments. (No more than 3 per team.)
- 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.
- 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.
- Do 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.
- Section 1.2(a) False Position.
- 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 1.3 Newton's Method.
Program Assignment 1.

document before beginning this assignment.
- You should have the code for the bisection method and
Assignment 5 successfully completed before you attempt this.
- You should also study the pseudocode for Newton's method
(assignment 8) and use formatted printing as explained in
- Here are some of the results
you should obtain in the first 4 iterations of 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.

- Section 3.2 Newton-Gregory Interpolating
(covered Wednesday, Friday, & Wednesday)
- Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
You should rework Exam 1 immediately after it
(Recall that a score below 64% is an F. See the course policy.)
The median score was 89%!
(So half the class scored above 89 and half scored below 89.)
See the grade distribution.
- 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
Recall that Assignment 15 is a running assignment.
- Do all the examples in the third
Maple Tutorial entitled Derivatives and
- Section 5.6 Gauss Quadrature.
Program Assignment 2 is posted on BlackBoard.
Due Monday, March 2 (Week 8).
(Posted Tues., Feb. 17)
You should have the trapezoidal rule code (see Assignment 15)
running properly before you attempt this program assignment.
Read this document before
beginning this assignment.
Here are the abscissas and weights for the
6 point 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,
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 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
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
- Review the Maple tutorial entitled
Printing and Plot Options.
Don't forget that Assignment 23
is a running assignment.
- Turn your Maple code for the Euler method (see Assignment 26)
into the code for:
- the modified Euler method, and
- the classical RungeKutta method.
- Section 6.3: Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg
and Runge-Kutta-Verner Methods.
- Additional Programs for Solving IVPs.
Program Assignment 3 is posted on Blackboard.

Facie (noun) \'fā cē, 'fay
pl. facies \'fā cēz, 'fay
First Known Use of FACIE – 16:34 UTC,

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