Directions for the Computer Project:
- Download the maple projet(s)
Here .
This is a Maple file. If you have your brouwser set
up for ".mws" to start Maple as a helper app, then
all is fine. Otherwise just save the file and
restart it with Maple.
- Work the project in groups of two or three, or four
- Hand in a printed copy of the worked project o n the Due Date.
Include in the printed version lots of English Text explaining what you are doing and why.
- Create of CoWeb page detailing your group's experience, trials, tribulations, and suggestions. To do this:
GO to the CoWeb link
Here
Edit that page by adding between *'s:
*Prject two: Name, name name*
Like *Project 2: Maria Calas, Birgit Neilson and J Sutherland* After you do
that, hit save. The page will now have a link that looks like
Maria Calas, Birgit Neilson and J. Sutherland [Create]
Go to this link, and your CoWewb page will be created. Edit there. Flat text if fine.
- Your CoWeb page should contain:
- A description of the problem in English
- The mathods that you used to solve the problem.
- Any problems (computer problems, maple problems, group problems, etc...) that you encountered in working the project.
- Any useful hint you have for others.
- Anything else you want to add.
- The due date is April 17.

The due date is March 27.
The midterm course/instructor opinion surveys will be online starting this
Sunday, Feb. 27th through Friday March 3rd. This is your chance to give
your instructors feedback that they can use to improve their classes while
you are still there! The midterm survey has been changed from last term
and so it should be more applicable for a course that is still in progress.
Unfortunately, you must first bypass all the old questions to get to the
new ones, due to a programming glitch, so please persevere...
Even if you don't think the survey applies for a particular class that you
are taking, please take the time to log on to the system and fill out the
comments for the instructor - they are interested in hearing (constructive,
polite, etc.) feedback!
[And the comment section has been enlarged to allow for more comments.]
To get to the surveys, go to
