# 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. /2.3
^{5}(4.5) - 2. 11.3
^{3}+ 5.1^{2} - 3. ^2Гб
- 4. Let
*a =*8,*b*= 7, then compute (a^{2}— b^{2}). - 5. 2(11.5)+ 6.2
^{2}(0.7)

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

- 6. /(a)
*= —x*^{2}+ 3a; + 3 - 7. /(a)
*= x*^{2}*—*3a — 1 - 8.
*f(*—0.1213a;_{x}) =^{4}+ 3.462a;^{3}- 29.22a;^{2}+ 64.68a; + 97.69 - 9.
*g(x) = x*^{3}*— 2x*^{2}*— 5x*+ 6 - 10. s(a;) = 2a;
^{3}— 3x^{2}— 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

Perform the required function in Maple.

- 14.
*-jj-*(1.104a -0.542a^{2}) - 15.
*J*1.104a -0.542a^{2}*dx* - 16.
*I*1.104a — 0.542a^{2}*dx*
