Problem 2 follows techniques illustrated within the Math 222:Lecture 3:Using Transform Plots (or Linear Approximation) worksheet. The worksheet illustrates what an "affine linear approximation" to a function from R^2 to R^2 is (besides being a mouthful...) and how to calculate it in Maple. This kind of approximation is important conceptually !
Note that problem 2 requires both the loading of the linear algebra package and the loading of the local transform_plots package.
Expressing exponentials as E^x often requires an evalf:
Or has someone used apostrophes (') rather than backquotes (`) to specify the path. (The command paste pathname under the edit menu is the easy way to generate a correct path.)
Scalar Multiplication uses * rather than &*
