A course in using Maple and LaTeX
to investigate and communicate mathematics
Starting from the ground level, we will show
by example how to pose and investigate mathematical problems, make
up problem sets, and prepare exams with the Maple language in a
Maple worksheet. In addition, we will show how to use
the LaTeX mathematics typesetting language to prepare or modify documents
from page length to book length. For more details, see the
of the course and the class
notes (which will accumulate as the semester wears on.
