The content of each lab, following a brief aim and description, is to present problems and give the commands necessary to solve them using Maple. The student need only input the commands and hit enter to receive the desired output. Additional (homework) exercises can be given to challenge the students outside of class time. Over the past 5 years, the author has successfully used these projects to teach linear algebra. Student feedback and performance have been excellent.
The projects containing applications will be on display. Copies of the entire set will be available for distribution.
