secant-tangent gives a visual demonstration of how the tangent line is approximated by a sequence of secant lines.
primer1 is an introduction to Maple designed for users who have no Maple experience.
primer2 is a demonstration of the use of formulas to represent functions and introduces basic commands for differentiation and integration.
solutions for the exercises in primer 2.
DEtools1 is a demonstration of the use of the DEtools package to plot direction fields and solutions for first order equations.
DEtools2 is a demonstration of the use of the DEtools package to plot direction fields and solution curves for systems of two first order equations.
odes is a demonstration of Maple commands for obtaining and graphing analytical and numerical solutions for differential equations and systems.
HeatIVP is a worksheet that prepares graphs and animations for solutions of the Cauchy problem for the heat equation.WaveIVP is a worksheet that prepares graphs and animations for solutions of the Cauchy problem for the wave equation.
DiffusionDisk is a worksheet that illustrates the use of Maple to solve homogeneous linear PDE's with constant coefficients on a bounded domain by the method of separation of variables. The worksheet solves the problem of radial diffusion in a disk. The worksheet assumes that the user knows the correct Sturm-Liouville equation and can solve the equation for the time-dependent factors by hand. (One can of course add more code to automate some of these simpler features.)
simplex is a worksheet for the simplex algorithm.
For best results, set up the following in the lower left corner of the Acrobat print dialog box:
Derivative Concept is a handout that briefly summarizes the concept of the derivative for functions of 1 variable, with emphasis on the geometric significance of the derivative.Directional Slope is a handout that lays the groundwork for the development of the directional derivative by considering the slope in a given direction of a linear function. Exercises are included.
Optimization is a handout that summarizes the theory and methods for for finding local and global extrema for functions of two variables.
Line Integrals is a handout that summarizes the theory and computational methods for integrals of vector fields along curves.
Surface Integrals is a handout that summarizes the theory and computational methods for scalar surface integrals and flux integrals.
