Synopses & Reviews
Maple for Algebra presents the standard concepts of post-secondary algebra from the perspective of a PC-based, interactive computer algebra system. Illustrated by pen and pencil exercises, the step-by-step instructions apply Maple to standard problems. The advantage of using computer algebra is shown by solving problems graphically and numerically prior to showing the exact analytic solution. Problem paradigms are given in Maple laboratory exercises. Similar problems can be solved by editing the Maple worksheet containing the base problem.
