AS/SC/ MATH 2041
3.0 F

Symbolic
Computation Laboratory I

An introduction to symbolic computing in the Maple environment. Topics from
singlevariable differential and integral calculus, including simple ordinary differential
equations, are covered. Both mathematical understanding and applications are emphasized.
The course provides students with an introduction to
numerical computation in mathematics using Maple. Classes take place in a computer
lab and students will spend most of their time working independently, under the guidance
of the instructor, on assigned projects. The course mark will be based on the marks
obtained on the assigned projects. For a possible marking scheme and a list of projects
see http://hausdorff.math.yorku.ca/Courses/204142/2041.shtml.
The projects in MATH 2041 require a knowledge of single
variable calculus, linear algebra and high school algebra. No programming knowledge is
required.
Enrolment is limited to about 30 per section. Prerequisite:SC/AS/COSC
