Math 300: Mathematical Computing

Maple ICE

Recall that if a function f has derivatives of every order at a point x0, then the Taylor polynomial of degree n for f is

pn(x) = f(x0) + f'(x0)(x - x0) + f''(x0)(x - x0)2/2! + . . . + f(n)(x0)(x - x0)n/n!.

Write a Maple procedure called as p:=mytaylor(f,x0,n) that returns a Taylor polynomial of degree n for a function you specify.

The last test will take place at the final exam time on Tuesday, 12 December, from 1:30-3:30. It will be written as a one-hour (not 50 minute) exam, but you may have the full two hours for it. In other respects it will be very like the other tests, but comprehensive - it will emphasize Python, but cover all the topics we have seen. There is a Sample Exam, but be aware that things will have changed somewhat with the advent of ChatGPT.

Assignment A is posted.
