Assignments:
 Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled
Basics.
July 11
 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.
July 11
(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)
July 12
To expedite my taking attendance each day, please note the desk you
sit in on Wednesday of Week 1. I will have you sit at that desk the
remainder of the term.
 Section 0.7 –
Polynomials: Nested Form (Horner's Method).
July 13
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.
July 15
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 18
Finish forming your teams of 4 as soon as possible (for
the Programming Assignments).
I will give you until 1:20 Wednesday to form your teams.
After that I may shuffle members around as I see fit.
Each team should have 4 members and may include students from any of my 2
sections of MATH305.
 Write the Maple code for the
Bisection Method.
July 19
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
Options.
July 20
Then change your Maple code for the bisection method so that it uses
formatted printing and prints
each xm in decimal form showing 8 decimal
places, f(xm) in scientific notation showing 6 decimal places, and the
interval length in scientific notation showing 4 decimal places.
From now on we will use the
printf command for printing.
 Section 1.2(a) – False Position.
July 20
 Section 1.3 – Newton's Method.
July 22

Program Assignment 1.
Due Wed., Aug. 3 at 1:20.
(posted and handed out July 22)
Read this
document before beginning this assignment.
 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
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 – Fixed Point Method.
July 25
 Section 1.5(b) – Fixed Point Method
with Aitken Acceleration.
July 26
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.

EXAM 2 CONTENT BEGINS HERE. . .
 Section 3.2 – NewtonGregory Interpolating
Polynomials.
August 1
Here are some of the results
you should obtain in Part I of Program Assignment 1.
Do NOT proceed until Part I works correctly.
You should rework Exam 1 immediately to learn from your errors.
 Determine the Optimal Interpolation
Degree.
August 3
 Do this example that shows how to use Maple to generate an
interpolating polynomial through
points.
August 8
 Sections 5.2 & 5.3 – Proper Integrals:
Trapezoidal Rule and Simpson's Rules.
August 8
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 10
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 10
Recall that Assignment 16 is a running assignment.
 Do all the examples in the third
Maple Tutorial entitled
Derivatives and Integrals.
August 12
 Section 5.3: Simpson's – 3/8 Rule.
August 12

Program Assignment 2.
Due Wednesday, Aug. 24 (Week 7).
(Posted and emailed Sat. morning, Aug. 13)
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.
 Section 5.6 – Gauss Quadrature.
August 16
EXAM 2 CONTENT ENDS HERE.

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.
