Calculus 6/e, Early Transcendentals-Matrix Version

by Harald Pleym

This package of worksheets provides a dynamic Maple supplement to the textbook
Calculus 6/e, Early Transcendentals-Matrix Version
by *C. Henry Edwards and David E. Penney*. The
structure of the package is virtually identical to the textbook's table of
contents, and the worksheets are intended for use in conjunction with study of
the book itself. The examples and problems presented here are interactive
versions of those in the textbook. Hence students and instructors using Maple
can change input data and conditions in an example or problem to investigate the
resulting changes in step-by-step solutions and accompanying graphs and figures.

To profit optimally from these worksheets, you should work through the examples
and problems in sequence as you study the textbook. You are not assumed to be an
experienced Maple user. Indeed, you can work through the Maple worksheets
presented here simply by opening them and pressing the Enter key repeatedly to
execute in sequence the Maple commands that are already provided. But if you
examine these commands, you should see how input parameters and functions given
in the textbook examples have been inserted and might be altered in order to see
how the results would change.

Versions of Maple (**Maple 14 and later**) must be installed on your computer. To explore this
collection of worksheets, simply open the worksheet **contents.mw** and examine its
two sections:

**Preface** - An expanded version of this introduction, with additional details.

**Table of Contents** - With chapters and sections of the textbook hyperlinked to
the corresponding Maple worksheets.

Your typical working session will then begin by opening the
**content.mw**
worksheet, going to the **Table of Contents**, and selecting the link to the
textbook chapter and section that you wish to study.

**Please contact** Harald Pleym to get
the downloaded version of the **
