Mathematica Labs for MATH 121

These Labs refer to the textbook
 Calculus/Early Transcendentals, 7th Ed., by J. Stewart.


Lab 1  
(goes with Secs. 12.1 -- 12.4) 
   
Part 1: Review, and Parametric plots in 2D and 3D   (no exercises)
    Part 2:
Parametric plots of ellipses and hyperbolas   (this part is to be submitted for grading)
    Solution
     You'll need to download this file and open it on your computer; it will not open in your browser.
      Follow these steps for the download -- read them before you proceed!
      1)  Left-click on the link Solution and enter your UVM NetID and password at the prompt.
           The file will then open as a text file, which you cannot recognize as anything useful.
           (This isn't supposed to work like this, and last year it didn't, but some software has changed...)
      2)  Go back to this page. (The "back" button in the browser probably won't work, so you'll need
           to get here through my Teaching page.)
      3)  Right-click on the link Solution and select option "Save Link As" (or somethink similar in Macs).
           This will give you the option to download the file to a folder.
           IMPORTANT:   Sometimes the OS will ask you if you want to add a text extension to this file.
           Of course, you should decline it -- it's a Mathematica file, not text. So, download the file as
           is, i.e. with extension  .nb. You should now be able to open it as a Mathematica file.
