Laboratory Materials
♦
We will be using the Symbolic Math Toolbox ( MuPAD )
in MATLAB in the Computer Laboratory.
To access the MATLAB Symbolic Math Toolbox files (MuPAD Notebook (.mn) files):
 First, right click on the link for the
MuPAD Notebook (.mn file)
and save a copy to a local directory on your computer.
 Second, start MATLAB
by selecting MATLAB R2009B
off the Start, All Programs MATLAB submenu.
 Third, open the MuPAD Notebook (.mn file) from the
Current Folder window in
MATLAB.
General instructions

Content:
For each exercise, prepare a mathematically correct solution
by using suitable commands in a MuPAD Notebook file.

Organization:
Examine how the MuPAD Notebook
Introduction to MuPAD was prepared
as a model for the written explanations in your lab report.
Also look at the SOLUTIONS to the EXAMPLES in the textbook
for what to write and how much to write in your lab report.
Choose "wordier" solutions,
not those that just consist of a series of equations
unrelieved with any explanatory text.
Include enough information
(that is, sentences written in proper English)
in your report so that a fellow calculus student
would be able to understand what you did
and agree with your conclusions.

Format:
Include your name and lecture section (149 01 149 02)
in your MuPAD
Notebook laboratory report file.
Include the statements of each exercise.
Include your MuPAD
commands and your text describing your investigation
and your conclusions.
