AS/SC/ MATH 2041 3.0 F

Symbolic Computation Laboratory I

      An introduction to symbolic computing in the Maple environment. Topics from single-variable 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/2041-42/2041.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 1540 3.0, or equivalent computing experience; one of AS/SC/MATH 1010 3.0, AS/SC/MATH 1014 3.0, AS/SC/AK/MATH 1310 3.0.
