A.3 Plotting 283 plot([1+2*sin(t),t,t=-Pi..Pi], coords=polar); You can do plots in polar coordinates. In- side the square brackets, the first expression is the radius, the second is the angle, and the third is the range of the variable. In this case, the angle and the variable are the same, but in general the angle could be a more complicated function of the variable. plot({x^2,x^3},x=-5..5); plot({ [1+2*sin(t),t,t=-Pi..Pi], [cos(4*t),t,t=-Pi..Pi]}, coords=polar); You can put more than one curve in the same plot by enclosing a list of expressions in curly braces. r:=sqrt(x^2+y^2); f:=sin(r)/r; plot3d(f,x=-10..10, y=-10..10); Try changing the appearance of a 3D plot by using the

If you position the cursor in the drawing area and press and hold the left mouse button, you can move the mouse to change the orientation of the plot—try it. with(plots): polarplot(1+sin(t)); polarplot(sin(t/3)); polarplot(sin(t/3), t=0. .3*Pi); When you start Maple, only the most ba-sic plotting commands are available. By typing “ with(plots) ” you tell Maple to load a number of special purpose plot-ting functions. One of the most useful is the polarplot routine shown here. By de-fault, Maple uses the range [-π, π ]; the last command shows how to specify a different range....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
