This is a printout of “Menu.mws” in the “Maple Examples” folder. Using MAPLE for Visualization, Manipulation, and Simulation " A Brief Course in Mathematical Statistics " by Elliot A. Tanis Robert V. Hogg June, 2006 Prepared by Elliot A. Tanis Department of Mathematics Hope College Holland, MI 49422-9000 [email protected] http://www.math.hope.edu/tanis A Computer Algebra System (CAS) such as MAPLE can be used to manipulate symbols. The graphical capability of a CAS can help students visualize expressions that are manipulated symbolically. A CAS can also be used to do numerical calculations. Simulation can be incorporated in a variety of applications. Here are several examples from the text that illustrate ways for using MAPLE for visualization, manipulation, and simulation.

The statistics package that comes with MAPLE is not complete. However, Zaven Karian has written more than 130 additional procedures to support instruction in probability and statistics. These procedures are included in these materials. To get started, click on the following command lines to load the supplementary statistics package as well as some other procedures that will be used. NOTE: In order to read the supplementary procedures, you must specify where they are. They are in a file called "Maple Examples" that is included. An easy way to use the supplementary procedures is to first copy the "Maple Examples" folder into a new folder on the C drive. The programs are set up assuming that they have been copied into a folder where "Tanis-Hogg" is the name of the folder. If you do the same, all of the commands should work. Maple should first be loaded and then these programs should be pulled in. NOTE: When running these programs successively, definitions of variables in one program could have an adverse effect on same named variables in a succeeding program. If this is the case, reload the programs, beginning with the "restart" command. In summary, copy the "Maple Examples" folder into a folder on the C-drive of your computer that is named "Tanis-Hogg" and run the Maple examples from there after Maple has first been loaded . > restart: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\stat.m`: with(plots): randomize(): with(student): read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\ProbHistFill.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\EmpCDF.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\HistogramFill.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\ProbHistB.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\ProbHistFillY.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\ScatPlotCirc.txt`: read `C:\\Tanis-Hogg\\Maple Examples\\ScatPlotPoint.txt`:

    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.
