Problem Solving is essential to solve real-world problems. The text applies the mathematical modeling process by formulating, building, solving, analyzing, and criticizing mathematical models. It is intended for a course introducing students to mathematical topics they will revisit within their further studies. The authors present mathematical modeling topics using Maple as the computer algebra system for solving mathematical equations as well as obtaining plots that help us perform our analyses. The book presents cogent applications demonstrate an effective use of a Maple, provide discussions of the results obtained using Maple, and stimulate thought and analysis of additional applications.
