<p> Maplesoft aims to promote innovation in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in high school students by partnering with various organizations, and sponsoring initiatives in education, research and innovation. Every year, Maplesoft commits time, funds and people to enhance the quality of math-based learning and discovery and to encourage high school students to strengthen their math skills.</p>
<p> One such organization we partner with is The Perimeter Institute, a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics. Maplesoft currently serves as its Educational Outreach Champion, supporting various initiatives that promote math learning and exploration. Perhaps the most popular of its student outreach program is the annual International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP), a two-week camp that brings together 40 exceptional students from high schools across the globe. Each year students receive a complimentary copy of Maple, and use the product to practice and strengthen their math skills. The ISSYP program also uses Möbius, the comprehensive online STEM courseware platform from Maplesoft, to offer preparatory course materials to students. Completing lessons in Möbius aid in making the summer program a more productive and dynamic experience for the students.</p>

<p> Who Wants to Be a Mathematician is a competition organized by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for high school students in North America. Maplesoft has been a sponsor of the contest for many years. Maple T.A., the testing and assessment tool by Maplesoft, is used to administer the tests online, saving significant time and money for the organizers. When Maplesoft first introduced Maple T.A. to the contest, taking the competition from pen-and-paper tests to online tests, the number of contestants doubled, with about 2000 students participating in the contest. Maplesoft also donates prizes to the games in order to promote the use and love of math by high school students. This year will be first time the competition moves international. Six students in the UK took the Round 2 qualifying test, with the use of Maple T.A., and qualified for the live, on-stage finals of the UK edition of the competition that took place at the 2017 Maths Fest in London. Maplesoft is also supporting the spread of the WWTBAM contest to Canada in 2017.</p>

<p>Maplesoft also sponsors two outreach initiatives in Texas A&M University. The Summer Educational Enrichment (SEE) Math Program is a summer workshop attended by gifted middle school students. Students spend two weeks exploring ideas such as algebra, geometry, graph theory, and topology. The University also conducts the Integral Bee every year, a math based contest for high school students.</p>
<p>In addition to the above key projects, throughout the year Maplesoft also sponsors and is associated with a number of other competitions, conferences, and educational initiatives. A few of these are listed below.</p>
<ul>
<li>The Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair is a yearly, statewide science and engineering fair open to all 7th through 12th grade students. An important objective of their program is to attract young people to careers in science and engineering while developing skills essential to critical thinking.</li>
<li>FIRST Robotics Competition is a high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 120 pounds.</li>

207919Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:24:42 ZJennifer IorgulescuJennifer IorgulescuHow can I add an adaptive hint in Maple TA?
http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/221105-How-Can-I-Add-An-Adaptive-Hint-In-Maple-TA?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:Tagged With Maple T.A.
<p>I have read the doumentation on adding generic hints or feedback to a problem. However, what I would like to do is create adaptive hints that are triggered when a student enters a particular type of answer. I am primarily authoring Maple-graded and Mathematical Formula type questions.</p>
<p>Can I do this in the Grading Code? Could someone illustrate this with an example? </p>

207793Thu, 12 Jan 2017 14:51:17 ZJonny ZivkuJonny ZivkuHow can I simplify the way I write simplification problems?
http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/220788-How-Can-I-Simplify-The-Way-I-Write-Simplification?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:Tagged With Maple T.A.
<p>I'm creating a randomly generated question bank that generates the following STYLE or problem:</p>
<p><u>12x<sup>-4</sup>y<sup>2</sup></u><br>
3x<sup>6</sup>y<sup>-5</sup></p>
<p>I'm currently trying to use the answer type "formula without simplification," as I'd like to avoid the students putting the questions in as the answer, and this has been driving me crazy for hours now.</p>
<p>I have tried the "maple" function to simplify. E.g.:</p>
<p>$ANS = maple("( $C1*( $V1^$A1 )*( $V2^$B1 ) ) / ( $C2*( $V1^$A2 )*( $V2^$B2 ) )");</p>
<p>But it always throws an error.</p>
<p>I have simply done the math in the algorithm section, so you end up with an answer variable like this:</p>
<p><span style="color: rgb(115, 115, 115); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, Geneva, Swiss, SunSans-Regular; font-size: 12px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); display: inline !important; float: none;">$ANS = -4.0*(((z)^2.0)/(5.0*((p)^9.0)))</span></p>
<p>However, it will still count all answers submitted as incorrect.</p>
<p>Any help would be GREATLY appreciated =/.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><u>Variable name clarification</u><br>
I have $C1 and $C2, which are the constants of the numerator and denominator, respectively ("12" and "3" in the example).<br>
I have $V1 and $V2 which are the first and second variable, respectively, (in the example, "x" and "y").<br>
I have $A1 and $A2, which are the exponents for the variable $V1 in the numerator and denominator, respectively.<br>
I have $B1 and $B2, which are the exponents for the variable $V2 in the numerator and denominator, respectively.</p>
<p>All these generate from some interesting conditions to create the problems I want (no variables named i, e, or o, for example,) but all properly initialize.</p>
