Motivating comments (to be revised):

**Main goal: introduce students to
useful and readily-accessible computational tools
for numerical calculations, symbolic calculations,
functional visualizations, and interactive simulations
... immediately applicable to their coursework!
**

Small assignments that will introduce various concepts will be announced.

Larger, end-of-the-semester computational projects will be submitted by small-groups of students.

For Maple, follow 322-maple.

For VPython, follow 322-VPython.

I verified that Maple is available in the Physics Building computer cluster. Using Internet Explorer, clicking on the .mws link will start "Maple 10". (Due to some minor differences between my version 8 and the university's version 10, there are some graphical glitches when graphing (say) 1/r when the range of r starts at zero. I will post a slightly modified version where the troublesome
