Aims

The aim of the course is to familiarise students with the computational system Maple, which is powerful tool for solving mathematical and engineering problems. The course aims to guide students to the ability of an independent work in Maple environment so as they could deepen their knowledge depending on their individual needs. Moreover, students will learn to analyze and solve some practical problems in single-handed projects.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Students are required to complete the assigned tasks.
