Calculus: Exploratory Maple Labs


The SPU mathematics department uses a collection of Maple labs as a part of all Calculus I and II (MAT 1234 and 1235) classes.  These labs are intended to lead you "discover" key concepts of calculus on your own through carefully designed explorations using a computer and the mathematical software Maple.  Each of the labs is adapted from Learning by Discovery: A Lab Manual for Calculus, Anita Solow, editor, 1993. The book is volume 27 of the MAA Notes Series published by the Mathematical Association of America.

Each of the documents on this page is password protected; the password will be given to you in class by your instructor.  If you are not currently enrolled in one of these classes but are interested in looking at the labs, please contact Brian Gill of the SPU mathematics department at bgill@spu.edu.

MAT 1234: Calculus I

The following document contains general information for students regarding the Maple labs and lab reports for all calculus classes:

Before beginning the labs, you should work through parts of the online Maple tutorial.  We suggest working through Sections 1 through 3 of the tutorial before beginning Lab 1.  Also, we strongly recommend using this online tutorial rather than the New Users Tour included with Maple.

The handouts for each of the labs used in MAT 1234 can be found below.  Please note that individual instructors may modify these labs slightly for their own needs, so please check with your instructor to make sure these are the correct versions for your class.

MAT 1235: Calculus II

The following document contains general information for students regarding the Maple labs and lab reports for all calculus classes:

The handouts for each of the labs used in MAT 1235 can be found below.  Please note that individual instructors may modify these labs slightly for their own needs, so please check with your instructor to make sure these are the correct versions for your class.
