Software
We will use Maple extensively for calculations and programming in this course. The university has a site license. Maple is installed on the PCs and MACs in the assignment lab, the CECM lab, university open labs and the library. Maple is available from the microcomputer store for about $200.
The following Maple worksheet (in Maple worksheet format (.mws) and
Adobe PDF format (.pdf) contains notes for how to use Maple.
Please read through this even if you have used Maple before.
