Announcements about MaplePrimes and Maplesoft

Every year at Maplesoft, we continue to pursue our mission of making powerful computational mathematics easily accessible within a friendly environment. Maple 17 is no exception: Hundreds of new algorithms, from differential equations to statistics to signal processing, continue to keep Maple ahead of the curve. At the same time, a wealth...

Never before has the educational landscape been changing as fast as it is today, driven by a new generation of students who are growing up with instant access to on-demand information. This generation relies on ubiquitous network access and takes for granted technology that permeates every aspect of their lives. Phones and tablets are everyday companions and are used to connect with their peers, take classroom notes and research school projects. Beyond being mere consumers...

    A powerful approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics for students of science and engineering has been made practical through the development of powerful general mathematical software, of which Maple provides the least steep learning curve.  Accordingly, it is timely to produce an interactive electronic textbook that, for students of chemistry -- also biochemistry and chemical engineering, has as its objective in part I,
Mathematics for...

Well, it’s been more than 17 years since First Leaves: A Tutorial Introduction to Maple V was first published as a hardcover book, and since that time, Maple, the Maple documentation, and the world have undergone huge changes.   We are now in a state where all our documentation is available electronically, including both in-product and online; where the vast majority of our customers receive our products electronically and never even see the printed...

We have added over 2000 new questions to the Maple T.A. Content Center.   Content comes from the University of Guelph, the University of Waterloo, the University of Portsmouth, and Keele University. Topics include calculus, statistics, engineering mathematics

We have just released Maple 16.02 and MapleSim 6.01.

Maple 16.02 includes updated platform support, enhancements to the Physics package (including fixes to problems first reported on MaplePrimes - thank-you),  connectivity to the latest version of MATLAB and Visual Studio , as well as some efficiency and interface improvements. See the Maple 16.02 update page for more details.

We have just released Teaching Calculus with Maple: A Complete Kit.  Leveraging both Maple and Maple T.A., Teaching Calculus with Maple includes lecture notes, student worksheets, Maple demonstrations, Maple T.A. homework, and more – everything you need to teach Calculus 1 and Calculus 2.  Teaching Calculus with Maple  was developed at the University of Guelph under the leadership of an award-winning teacher and field-tested in classes with hundreds of students.

We have just released a free collection of Maple and MapleSim classroom materials that helps bring modern technology to any introductory course in control design. This collection includes interactive classroom demonstrations that illustrate key concepts; lab projects and assignment questions; and example models ready to be explored.  It’s been designed primarily for instructors, but students should find much of it useful, too.

MapleNet 16 is now available. New features include the ability to programmatically execute Maple documents from your MapleNet application and support for the Symbolic Computation Software Composability Protocol (SCSCP) framework, which promotes interoperability with special-purpose computer algebra systems. For more details, see What’s New in MapleNet 16.

Just wanted to let everyone know that there is a Maple 16 update available. Maple 16.01 includes improvements to the mathematics, interface, and plotting capabilities of Maple, including:

  • Enhancements to the Physics package in the area of general relativity
  • Translations of tutors and assistants into French and Brazilian Portuguese
  • A correction to the problem in plotting multiple plots at once in non-Cartesian coordinates, as

Released today, with over 4500 additions and enhancements, Maple 16 reinforces our track record for consistent innovation and industry leadership in areas like ease of use and symbolic computing performance.

New versions of Maple T.A. and the Maple T.A. MAA Placement Test Suite are now available. Highlights include:

- Adaptive questions provide students another chance when they give an incorrect response. Knowing the student is having trouble, the question can be adapted to walk the student through the problem one step at a time, allow students to try a simpler version of the same question before retrying the original, or whatever the instructor feels is appropriate. 

As we look ahead to our next Maple release, I wanted to let you know of some changes that we are making  to the platforms and operating systems that will be supported by Maple 16.

With Maple 16 we will be adding support for Linux Ubuntu 11.10 and Macintosh OS X 10.7 while dropping support for Linux Ubuntu 10.10 and Macintosh OS X 10.5.  As a result, we will no longer support Maple on the PPC platform (Apple stopped PPC support as of OS X 10.5).

We have just released the MapleSim Driveline Component Library. Built with the involvement of several transmission manufacturers, this MapleSim add-on covers all stages in the powertrain, from the engine to the differential, wheels, and road loads, as well as vehicle dynamics. MapleSim and the MapleSim Driveline Component Library make it much easier for transmission manufacturers to reduce power loss through improved designs, resulting in more efficient vehicles.

We are looking for a Maple Wizard to join our team, based in California. US citizenship is an absolute requirement. Please send me a message if you are interested or know someone who might be.

thanks
