2705 18F maple homework


submission instructions

Homework problems marked by an asterisk * on the homework log page are to be done using MAPLE with a partner (or two partners). Save each chapters' problems in a single worksheet (with all partners' 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 E&P chapter 3 section 1 problem 2)  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. Filename: maplex.mws, where x is the chapter number the problems are coming from in the E&P DELinAlg textbook as designated on the due date list below. 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. Begin to learn how to document your work.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS [Why they are important!]:
1) Worksheet submission will be done as an email attachment where the subject header is:
[mat2705] lastname-lastname<-lastname>-maplex.mw
where the last names of all partners are listed (separated by hyphens, no spaces) and x stands for the chapter number of the maple assignment: 1,2,3,5.
2) Include the partners as email recipients using the CC option
so that I can REPLYALL with the graded commented worksheet.
3) The filename must be the same as in the email subject heading:
  lastname-lastname<-lastname>-maplex.mw
so I can extract them and tell where your worksheet is in my local folder (x is 1,2,3 etc!). When you attach your worksheet, first change its name to agree with this longer format so I can save it that way onto my hard drive.

Here is a Maple template file to get started. Save it (right-click on link and "SAVE AS" choosing type "ALL FILES") and open it up in MAPLE: maple1.mw
Add a new section for the next problem etc.
[MAPLE sections can be inserted empty and later filled, using the INSERT menu, Section selection, then insert a MAPLE prompt |> icon on the top  toolbar, or one can select a region of a worked problem with the mouse and hit the second icon INDENT after the Maple prompt icon to enclose the region in a section.]

Everyone must have a partner (or two) unless agreed upon in advance with bob. [You may change partners on different assignments.]

Consult the command list worksheet for examples when necessary: cmdlist4.mw.

"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. [If you do not get a reply to the email submitted in your name for a given assignment, it probably means I did not receive it. Check with me after a reasonable amount of time.]

Remember, you may come to my office for consultation on any problem, or request preliminary help via email (attach worksheet) if you are stuck on something. Since this is 10 percent of your grade, and I am very flexible about deadlines and helping you, it is absurd not to make sure you get full credit on all assignments.
