Maple Labs
Maple labs 1 to 6 are due as indicated, usually 7 days or more after the LCB 115 session. The labs are distributed in PDF format and also in MW and MPL formats suited for input into Maple. Download what you need from the Maple Labs DirectoryUtah Maple Help gives examples of maple coding that can be mousecopied into a maple session. Recorded here is how to setup maple as a worksheet, how to print and how to save files.
Also find here how to use the laylinag package described in the 2270 textbook (Lay, Lay, Calvis 2015). Questions arising from these documents can be answered in the Math Center, by email to me, or in person 113 JWB or phone (8015816879).

Remote Maple: Running Maple from Home
Maple can be run from home, a laptop, or even a phone or tablet, using a minimal internet connection. Instructions here for the UofU Library and the Math Department computers:Maple from home, UofU Library Remote Maple 18 How To Use Remote Maple
Problem Sessions
The problem sessions are scheduled for fixed times during the week. You may add or remove your name from the problem session list of days and times, by sending email. The list is updated whenever this happens.View the Problem Session List for locations and times.
The default location is JWB 113. We would move from this office to a Math Center room, or a classroom, provided there are 3 or more persons. Problem sessions reduce to consultations or tutorials when there are one or two persons. We work from clipboards and computers, discussing problems, textbook topics and exam questions.
Extra Credit Problems
One collection of extra credit problems are matched to Otto Bretscher's textbook on
linear algebra. A second collection of extra credit problems is matched to Gilbert Strang's linear algebra textbook. Some problems are independent of any textbook. Credit is onetoone for missed homework, whatever the reason, without any
effort to match subjects or chapters from the current textbook.
Extra credit is organized by chapter: Download Extra Credit Problems Here.
Semester Project
The due date for the semester project is actually three dates. Create or join a group by Friday, February 3. Group leaders report by email (1) the topic, (2) a summary of what will be done, and (3) a list of group members with email addresses.
 The group leader submits a draft summary of the project results on March 10.
 The best projects will be identified and scheduled for classroom presentation
on April 21 and 24.
 The revised final semester project report in PDF form is due in email by May 2. A paper print of the PDF is not expected, although classroom copies and/or an internet link is recommended, if your group has a presentation on April 21 or 24.
Some topics and sample projects can be found on the Projects Page.
