Student Plot Options

Description

 • For the Student subpackage visualization routines, you can use a subset of the plot options available for the plot and plot3d commands. (For a complete list of plot options available in Maple, see plot/options and plot3d/options.)
 • For two-dimensional plots, you can use the following options. For more information about an option, see plot/options.

 'axes' 'axesfont' 'font' 'labelfont' 'labels' 'linestyle' 'scaling' 'style' 'symbol' 'symbolsize' 'thickness' 'tickmarks' 'titlefont' 'transparency'

 Note: The 'legend' option can be given in limited circumstances, and in some cases you can remove the default caption or legend; see examples.
 • For three-dimensional plots, you can use the following options. For more information about an option, see plot3d/options.

 'ambientlight' 'axes' 'axesfont' 'font' 'gridstyle' 'labeldirections' 'labelfont' 'labels' 'light' 'lightmodel' 'linestyle' 'orientation' 'projection' 'scaling' 'shading' 'style' 'symbol' 'symbolsize' 'thickness' 'tickmarks' 'titlefont' 'transparency'

 • Change the default colors for the entire Student package by using Student[SetColors].

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Student}\left[\mathrm{Calculus1}\right]\right):$
 > $\mathrm{TaylorApproximation}\left({x}^{3}+5x,x=1,\mathrm{output}=\mathrm{plot},\mathrm{thickness}=3,\mathrm{scaling}=\mathrm{unconstrained}\right)$
 > $\mathrm{TaylorApproximation}\left({x}^{3}+5x,x=1,\mathrm{output}=\mathrm{plot},\mathrm{thickness}=3,\mathrm{scaling}=\mathrm{constrained}\right)$

Control the legend for the function by making it display $\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right)$ instead of $f\left(x\right)$.

 > $\mathrm{Tangent}\left(\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right),x=1,0..\mathrm{\pi },\mathrm{output}=\mathrm{plot},\mathrm{functionoptions}=\left[\mathrm{legend}="sin\left(x\right)"\right]\right)$

Remove the legend for the function and remove the caption.

 > $\mathrm{Tangent}\left(\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right),x=1,0..\mathrm{\pi },\mathrm{output}=\mathrm{plot},\mathrm{functionoptions}=\left[\mathrm{legend}=""\right],\mathrm{caption}=""\right)$
 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Student}\left[\mathrm{LinearAlgebra}\right]\right):$
 > $\mathrm{LeastSquaresPlot}\left(\left[\left[1,2\right],\left[3,5\right],\left[4,2\right],\left[6,4\right]\right],\mathrm{axes}=\mathrm{boxed}\right)$
