Data Analysis Modelling and Simulation — MATH1711 Epiphany Term Practical 0 Aim: To introduce basic required tools from Maple which will be used in the course of Practicals. You can access Maple on the ITS Networked PC service. You will find Maple on the Start menu, at: Programs | Programming Languages | MAPLE | MAPLE 10. Run the Classic Worksheet version. See http://www.dur.ac.uk/its/software/installed/npcs/ , where a basic guide can be downloaded. Maple is a symbolic calculator which can : exponentiate ( ^ ), divide ( / ), multiply ( * ), add ( + ) and sub- tract( - ). It probably knows more standard functions than you! sin(x), cos(x), tan(x), arcsin(x), arccos(x) arctan(x), sinh(x), cosh(x), tanh(x), exp(x) sqrt(x), log(x), abs(x), log(x), log10(x), n! 1 If you want to know about cos( x ) then type help(cos); 2 To define a function f ( x ), write f:=x->sin(x)+cos(2*x); 1 arcsin( x ) = sin - 1 x , arccos( x ) = cos - 1 x , arctan( x ) = tan - 1 x , sinh = (e x - e - x ) / 2, cosh = (e x + e - x ) / 2, tanh = sinh / cosh. 2 The semi-colon (or colon) plays a key role that tells Maple when you have finished the line.

### What students are saying

• 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.
