We introduce new features of PTC Mathcad within the context of math and science problems. You will follow step-by-step instructions and actually try out the new concepts within Mathcad. You may want to simply read through the Tutorial, but spending a bit more time working through some of the exercises and problems will help you fully understand how to best use PTC Mathcad to solve your own problems.
Worksheets marked with use PTC Mathcad premium features, otherwise they are Express compatible. All worksheets created in PTC Mathcad Prime 3.0.
In this chapter, we will explore how Mathcad can be used to help you manipulate and solve equations. You will learn that Mathcad can solve an equation for any variable, substitute an expression into an equation, and even solve multiple equations for several variables simultaneously.
With these Exercises, we will practice graphing functions, but you will also learn how to format your graphs. Specially, we will talk about adding markers to a graph, changing the appearance of a curve, and adding a legend or title.
In this chapter, we are not going to teach many new features of Mathcad. You have learned quite a bit so far and now we want to show you how Mathcad can be used to understand the concepts of a problem more completely.
In this section, we will deal with the more complicated problem of analyzing two sets of data points that are related in some way. We will graph the data sets to look at the relationship, try out a theoretical model, and then summarize our results.
