21-126: Introduction to Mathematical Software
This course provides an introduction to the use of several software
packages which are useful to mathematics students. Among the packages
are Maple and Mathematica for symbolic computing, TeX and LaTeX for
mathematical documents, and Matlab for numerical computing. The aim
of the course is to provide the student with some basic skills in the
use of this software without attempting complete coverage. A deeper
knowledge of the software will be easy to obtain after completing this
course. There are no prerequisites for the course, other than basic
computer literacy and a knowledge of elementary mathematics. It is
suggested that the course should be taken during the first two years
of undergraduate studies.
