INTRODUCTORY MAPLE SESSION:
By now you should be signed up for one of the introductory Maple Sessions
that take place on Mo-Th, September 8-11, evening at various labs all over campus. (Sign up
sheets are posted outside of DRL A1). With the help of a TA you will go
through an introduction to Maple and you will be asked to complete the
tasks on page 17 of the Lab Manual. Print out your work you did in
answering questions A-E and hand it in as part of your homework.
In your first recitation you were encouraged to form a study group. One
advantage is that the MAPLE ASSIGNMENT portion of your homework can be
handed in by the whole study group. (Do the assignment together and put all
names on the front page).

- In the introductory session you learned how to differentiate and
integrate functions with Maple. There is more information about the
diff command on p. 91-96 of the Lab Manual and about the int
command on p. 97-101. Pick out 3 differentiation problems and 3
integration problems from the review problems assigned above and
do them using Maple.
- Find two functions that Maple cannot integrate and speculate why.
