Mathematical modeling using Maple

MetadataShow full item record
The area of higher mathematics begins with successive courses in calculus; however, rarely does the calculus student recognize the applications or impetus for the mathematical skills that are taught. Giordano and Weir produced A First Course in Mathematical Modeling, the first text which addressed this shortcoming in the curriculum of every science and engineering field. With the advent of powerful classroom computers, Fox, Maddox, Giordano and Weir produced Mathematical Modeling With Minitab, which assists the student in translating the theory into a computer language. At the Naval Postgraduate School, Maple is the software used most commonly in the Mathematics Department, requiring a similar instructing tool. Mathematical Modeling Using Maple follows the lead of Mathematical Modeling With Minitab, and assists the student in grasping the concepts of the modeling class without getting slowed down by the syntax of Maple.
