You may also purchase the Custom Edition, which is the same as the 2nd Edition but also includes the Student Solutions Manual bound at the back, which you may find useful. The course will follow the book fairly closely, and homework problems may be assigned from the book.
We will also be covering some supplementary sections by the same authors that will not be included in your book. If you buy a new version of the text from the bookstore, you will be able to download these extra sections using an access code. Otherwise, you will be provided with hard copies as a handout.

Maple Computing Introduction
The following files were used in the Maple Intoduction Sessions run in the first few weeks of the course. You may find them useful:
2250mapleintro.pdf
2250mapleintro.mws (save
and open in Maple to read)
The following files will be helpful for Homework 2:
proj13.mws  This is a Maple worksheet; save it and load it into Maple. You can see the commands used to perform tasks like the ones you are asked to do in the homework (following what I did in lecture and the example of section 13 in the text book). You can hit Enter next to each Maple command to see the result.
proj13.pdf  This file has more explanation of the commands used in the Maple worksheet. Scroll down to page 3 under "Using Maple." This file also describes the commands to use in Mathematica and Matlab.
(Note: These were taken from the text book's web page).
The following will be helpful for Homework 3:
HW3Guide.mws  Load this file into Maple. It contains commands for calculations and figures for "1.5 Application: Indoor Temperature Oscillations" from pages 5658 in the text book.
The following will be helpful for Homework 4:
The following will be helpful for Homework 9: HW9Guide.mws
