- Homework Assignments
- Assignment 1 - due date Friday September 1. Note: the first couple of problems don't have closed forms for the integral and the sum. use the evalf() function to find the approximate numerical values of the answers.
- Assignment 2 - due date Friday September 8. This is also a Maple assignment, based on functions. Although the questions can be answered using variable assignments (such as f:=3*x+2) I want you to get practice in using the equivalent functional form (f:=x->3*x+2) as this is more useful.
