MAT 5920 08F:
Exploring Topics in Higher Mathematics with Maple
Instructor: bob jantzen
This course is not a content driven course where you ingest a large amount of material because someone thinks it is good for you, although you are not always sure what its application is. This course is an attempt to give you a peek into the real world of math where one can pursue some interesting mathematical question and have fun with it, that is, if you think it is possible to have fun with math, which might have some likelihood of being true since you were somehow attracted to math in the first place. We will use a book to explore 5 areas of mathematics, seeing how we can get interesting results that are only possible with a computer algebra system. No prior expertise in Maple is required.
