  • 26 hrs exercises



Learning objectives

The aim of the course is to familiarise students with the computational system Maple, which is a powerful tool for solving mathematical and engineering problems. The course aims to guide students to the ability of an independent work in the Maple environment so as they could deepen their knowledge depending on their individual needs. Moreover, students will learn to analyze and solve some practical problems in single-handed projects.
Students will gain knowledge of basic Maple commands, Maple structure, Input, Output and interaction with other products. Students will master solving mathematical and engineering problems in this computational environment.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Students are expected to have the knowledge of mathematics at the secondary school level, basics of PC computing skills.
