This selection of problems was prepared by Professor E. R. Speer in 2009, and slightly modified, based on the 10th edition, by M. Kiessling in Fall 2015.

NOTES:

  1. The individual instructors may assign Maple labs according to their own preferences.
  2. It is suggested that Maple labs be collected two weeks after they are assigned.
