I am very pleased to announce that we have just begun a free public beta for a new online product, Maple Learn! Maple Learn is a dynamic online environment designed specifically for teaching and learning math and solving math problems, from mid-high school to second year university.
Maple Learn is much more than just a sophisticated online graphing calculator. We tried to create an environment that focuses on the things instructors and students in those courses have told us that they want/need in a math tool. Here are some of my personal favorites:
- You can get the answer directly if you want it, but you can also work out problems line-by-line as you would on paper, or use a combination of manual steps and computations performed by Maple Learn.
- The plot of your expression shows up as soon as you start typing, so plotting is super easy
- You can parameterize expressions with a single mouse click, and then watch the plots and results change as you modify the values using sliders
- It’s really easy to share your work, so when a student asks for help, the helper can always see exactly what they’ve done so far (and it will be legible, unlike a lot of the tutoring I’ve done!)
Free public beta: Maple Learn is freely available to instructors and students as part of an on-going public beta program. Please try it out, and feel free to use with your classes this fall.
Visit Maple Learn for more information, and to try it out. We hope you find it useful, and we’d love to know what you think.
