Computer Use In and Out of the Classroom
- Etiquette for using computers during class
- We'll be using the computer algebra system Maple throughout the semester. As long as your computer is connected to the campus network (and your computer has a recent enough operating system), you may use Maple on it. Here are instructions for downloading Maple onto your computer, be it Mac or PC.
- Mike Pepe of Seattle Community College has created a helpful set of Maple tutorials called Maple Essentials . If you're using a PC, right-click on the link and select Save Target As ... and save the file to the desktop. If you're using a Mac, control-click or right-click on the link and select Save Linked File to Desktop. Then locate the file MapleEssentials.zip on your desktop and double-click on it to open it. (On a Mac, this creates a folder called Maple Essentials on your desktop, that you then open to find all the tutorial files).
- I have made up a list of some of the Maple commands you'll be needing in class. It's not completely updated for Maple 11 yet, but it should give you a good place to start, at any rate.
