These are meant to encourage partnerships in the class and familiarize students with Maple as a tool, not as a graded activity. Have fun. bob will give you feedback on your submtted assignments.
Homework problems marked by an asterisk * on the homework log page are to be done using MAPLE with a partner (or two or three partners). Save each chapter's problems in a single worksheet (with all partners' full names inside the worksheet at the top with date) as "MAPLE sections" with a section title labeling the problem (as in 3.1.2 for Stewart chapter 3 section 1 problem 2 or CLM 2.4.1 for the CalcLabs with Maple problems) on your personal hard drive or network space (each partner keeps a copy for safety) until requested to submit the chapter worksheet the week following chapter completion. You may work individually on any given problem if successful, but must meet, discuss and merge your work with a fixed partner(s) for a given maple worksheet collection of assignments. Try to put in comments that explain what you are doing in your worksheet, rather than just listing a series of maple inputs and outputs.
Follow the instructions of the textbook problem, unless a template is provided with internal instructions. [Template worksheets for specific problems can be copied with select all and pasted into a section in your own worksheet.]
Here is a template file to get started. Save it and open it up in MAPLE:
Add a new section for each problem in future worksheets. Be sure to use text mode [ T icon on the toolbar, no prompt at beginning of the line].
Worksheet submission will be done as an email attachment where the filename is:
and the subject header is:
where the last names of all partners are listed (separated by hyphens) and x stands for the number (chapter) of the maple assignment as given below.
[This helps me organize my 1505 mail folder so I cannot fail to see you submitted a worksheet even if a partner emailed it, and helps me organize my 1505 file folder where the worksheet attachments are extracted.]
Include the partners as email recipients using the CC option so that I can REPLYALL with the graded commented worksheet attached.
Everyone must have a partner (or two) unless agreed upon in advance with bob because of extenuating circumstances. [You may change partners on different assignments. If you have no partner you either get full credit or no credit since only those people who have no trouble with maple can consider doing it alone.]
Consult the Maple tips page when necessary: Maple tips page.
"Upgradable" after the grade [0/2, 0.5/2, 1/2, 1.5/2, 2/2]
means you can correct your worksheet based on my comments and resubmit it for a
better grade. I will help you in person if you do not understand how to correct
any problem. It is easy to do well on this grade input, if not initially, then
by getting help from me.
Remember, you may come to my office for consultation on any problem, or request preliminary help via email (attach worksheet and explain what is not working) if you are stuck on something.
[MAPLE sections can be inserted empty and later filled, using the INSERT menu, choose Section, then insert a section title, or one can select a region of a worked problem with the mouse and hit the second icon after the maple prompt icon [the indent icon] to enclose the region in a section, and then give it a title.]
