  • Each Hour Quiz will be distributed at the beginning of the lab period and collected at the end of the lab period.  You can use the textbook, your notes, the computer, Maple, or any other inanimate source to answer the questions. The questions will be related to the concepts and techniques addressed in previous labs.
  • Projects are longer collections of related questions that can be answered with the skills and knowledge learned in the labs and lectures for this course. A project report will be due at the beginning of the next lab period.
  • The maplets are most easily run with the Maplet Viewer (available only for Windows). On other platforms, save the file, load the file into a Maple session (just as you would any other Maple worksheet), and execute the entire worksheet. This will start the maplet.
  • Portable Document Format (PDF) files are viewable with Adobe Reader Download Adobe Reader .
