A DERIVE screen from Lab #9:

The lab in Bilger 337 is finally ready for use.

The Monday labs for October 16, 23, and 30 and the Tuesday labs for October 17, 24, and 31 are set for Bilger 337. Each student has an account. I will give you your login names and passwords in class. You will also be able to use the labs in Bilger 319 and the one in the Business Ad Building room E102. They should all have DERIVE which you start by typing derive. You will have a small home directory in which you can keep your class .mth files.

Corrections!

• The Laboratory Exercises on page 13 of Chapter 1 contain the expression x^3 + x + 1 in exercises 1, 2, and 4. All of these should be x^3 - x + 1.
• Exercise 3 on page 13 is missing the word "how," so the end of it should read "and see how good your answer for the last problem is."
• On page 25 it explains how to set the input mode to "word." It should say "by choosing Option/Input/Word."
• In problems 5, 6, and 7 of Chapter 10 all of the sums use i for the index variable but it should be k. Also in Theorem 3, it should say "be positive," not "be a positive."

Clarification of the homework

For each lab there will be a chapter in the M206L Laboratory Manual. The first lab corresponds to Chapter 1, the second to Chapter 2, etc. These chapters will tell you what to do. For the first two labs you just do the exercises at the end of Chapters 1 and 2. The textbook is Leinbach. We are in the process of replacing it entirely with our manual. There will be a chapter in our manual for each lab. But since I may not be able to make all the exercises needed for every lab, some chapters might say something like "For this lab do exercises x, y, and z from Leinbach on page w." I will pass out a revised schedule that hopefully will make this clear.
