Maple Training

A Maple training video of the basic features is provided at the website: https: / / www.maplesoft.com / support / training/quickstart.aspx.

The website has a self-contained video tutorial “Maple Quick Start.” Maple’s basic features covered include:

• • Numeric Computations
• • Symbolic Computations
• • Programming Basic Maple Procedures
• • Visualization
• • Calculus
• • Linear Algebra
• • Student Packages
• • Other Maple Packages

This training serves as a basic refresher of Maple commands. The website also has a “QuickStart” PDF reference.

Maple Applications Center

The Maple Applications Center found at

https: / / www.maplesoft.com / applications / contains a large collection of worksheets available to students and practitioners alike. The authors have several worksheets available on the site.

Exercises

Perform the following operations in Maple:

• 1. /2.35(4.5)
• 2. 11.33 + 5.12
• 3. ^2Гб
• 4. Let a = 8, b = 7, then compute (a2 — b2).
• 5. 2(11.5)+ 6.22(0.7)

Enter the following functions. Obtain a graph. Find roots and solve for the intercepts.

• 6. /(a) = —x2 + 3a; + 3
• 7. /(a) = x2 3a — 1
• 8. f(x) = —0.1213a;4 + 3.462a;3 - 29.22a;2 + 64.68a; + 97.69
• 9. g(x) = x3 — 2x2 — 5x + 6
• 10. s(a;) = 2a;3 — 3x2 — 11a; + 7

Enter the following date sets into Maple and obtain a scatterplot for each:

11. a; 1 3 8 10

у 0.7 5 15.2 36

12. t 7 14 21 28 35 42

P 8 41 133 250 280 297

13. a- 29 48 72.7 92 118 140 165 199

у 0.49 0.82 1.23 1.54 1.97 2.34 2.74 3.30
