Syllabus
..... general course information and tentative class
schedule

Homework
..... a cumulative list of homework assignments

Math 2270 first Maple
project
....an introduction to Maple in the Math lab, and
to its commands for matrix operations

Math 2270 second Maple
project
....using Maple to study the geometry of linear
transformations which map the plane to itself

Math 2270 third Maple
project
....using Maple to study the fundamental subspaces associated
to a matrix, and to study different bases and change of
bases.

Math 2270 fourth Maple
project
....a least squares fit to find how human mass is related
to human height (at least in our class),
followed by a study of inner products
on function spaces, illustrating projections and the
Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization algorithm.

Math 2270 fifth Maple
project
....using the eigenvalues of quadratic forms to
classify conic sections and quadric surfaces, plotting
such curves and surfaces, and using Maple to explicitly
perform the change of variables and algebraic manipulations which
lead to their standard forms.
