The goal of this class is to use Maple to help learn Classical Mechanics. The course will be taught in Olin 103. You will bring your Thinkpads to each class and work through the laboratory on your pad. Your lab write-up will consist of your maple workshop. You are encourgaed to work in groups, but each student must complete a lab report. For maximum credit you must clearly describe each formula and definition that you make. Your write-ups can be e-mailed to the TA. All work should be completed during class and e-mailed by the end of class (No homework). You are required to complete each lab.
