Rolling an ellipse in a vertical plane
https://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/210428-Rolling-An-Ellipse-In-A-Vertical-Plane?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:New Posts
<p>In this Post I derive the differential equations of motion of a homogeneous elliptic lamina of mass <em>m</em> and the major and minor axes of lengths of <em>a</em> and <em>b</em> which rolls without slipping along the horizontal <em>x</em> axis within the vertical <em>xy</em> plane.</p>
<p>If the initial angular velocity is large enough, the ellipse will roll forever and go to ±∞ in the <em>x</em> direction, otherwise it will just rock.</p>
<p>I have attached two files:</p>
<p> <a href="/view.aspx?sf=210428_post/rolling-ellipse.mw">rolling-ellipse.mw</a><br>
Worksheet to solve the differential equations and animate the motion</p>
<p><a href="/view.aspx?sf=210428_post/rolling-ellipse.pdf">rolling-ellipse.pdf</a><br>
Documentation containing the derivation of the differential equations</p>

RostamianExperiences introducing Maple in a high school class (editor usability)
https://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/210419-Experiences-Introducing-Maple-In-A-High-School-Class-?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:New Posts
<p>I am a highschool teacher and we just started using Maple. It is a great program, but the students had a few problems with the worksheet-mode in the editor. Here is a list of small problems that are hopefully easy to fix.</p>
<p>In text editors such as Word you can highlight a piece of text and select "insert->equation" to turn the text into an equation. Maple doesn't supprt this, so if the students have written an equation in textmode, then they have trouble turning it into math-mode. (the answer is: highlight, ctrl-X, F5, ctrl-v but that is difficult to guess for beginners)</p>
<p>Once in a while the students place two equations next to eachother with no space in between. When this happens they cannot place the cursor between the two eqations, and therefore they cannot place a newline between the equations. In other words the two equations are glued together. (I think that you can solve this by pressing f5 in the right place, but it would be better to mirror the behavior of word)<br>
<br>
It would be great to allow the user to delete the pink error messages by pressing delete. Sometimes the students use math mode to write text inside a large paragraph and the result is an error message a few lines below. This error message cannot be deleted unless you trace down the math field and delete it. In one situation a student had deleted all the letters in the math field, but the error message could not be deleted until the empty mathfield had been found and deleted. (One solution is to highlight all math fields on the page whenever the user is editing text in math mode. That would make them easier to find and understand)</p>
<p><br>
If a student pressed enter or alt-enter inside an equation in worksheet mode, then the student stays in worksheet mode after executing the equation. I would prefer to switch to text-mode after pressing enter. This would mirror the behavior of word. Sometimes the students end up writing a long paragraph because they expect Maple to mirror the behavior of word. Once the text has been written in math mode then it is difficult to convert it into textmode again (This requires highlight, ctrl-X, F5, ctrl-v)</p>
<p>It would be great to write an equation that isn't meant to be executed by the kernel. In other words the equation should only be for display. You can solve this by writing ":" at theb end of the equation, but that makes the math look weird. It would be nice to have a way to do this.</p>
<p>If mac users havent installed a printer then they cannot export to pdf. It would be great to solve this problem (or at least write a helpful error message)</p>
<p>All of these problems are beginner problems, but if I you want to sell Maple in highschools then I think that you can gain from focusing on making Maple approachable so that the students have an early succes-story with the program. In my class we switched to Maple from another math program, and it was a hard sell because the other math program had an easier editor.</p>

https://www.mapleprimes.com/maplesoftblog/210356-Game-Of-Thrones-And-Graph-Theory?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:New Posts
<p>While googling around for Season 8 spoilers, I found data sets that can be used to create a character interaction network for the books in the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Song_of_Ice_and_Fire">A Song of Ice and Fire</a> series, and the TV show they inspired, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_of_Thrones">Game of Thrones</a>.</p>
<p>The data sets are the work of <a href="https://www.macalester.edu/~abeverid/">Dr Andrew Beveridge</a>, an associate professor at Macalaster College (check out his <a href="https://networkofthrones.wordpress.com/">Network of Thrones</a> blog).</p>
<p>You can create an undirected, weighted graph using this data and Maple's <a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/maple/view.aspx?path=GraphTheory">GraphTheory</a> package.</p>
<p>Then, you can ask yourself <em>really pressing questions </em>like</p>
<ul>
<li>Who is the most influential person in Westeros? How has their influence changed over each season (or indeed, book)?</li>
<li>How are Eddard Stark and Randyll Tarly connected?</li>
<li>What do eigenvectors have to do with the battle for the Iron Throne, anyway?</li>
</ul>
<p>These two applications (one for the TV show, and another for the novels) have the answers, and more.</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154529">Game of Thrones and Graph Theory</a></li>
<li><a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154530">A Song of Ice and Fire and Graph Theory</a></li>
</ul>
<p>The graphs for the books tend to be more interesting than those for the TV show, simply because of the far broader range of characters and the intricacy of the interweaving plot lines.</p>
<p>Let’s look at some of the results.</p>
<p>This a small section of the character interaction network for the first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series (<a href="https://www.mapleprimes.com/view.aspx?sf=210356_post/GOT_Overall_Graph_2.png">this</a> is the entire visualization - it's big, simply because of the shear number of characters)</p>
<p>The graph was generated by <a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=GraphTheory/DrawGraph">GraphTheory:-DrawGraph</a> (with method = spring, which models the graph as a system of protons repelling each other, connected by springs).</p>
<p>The highlighted vertices are the most influential characters, as determined by their Eigenvector centrality (more on this later).</p>
<p><img src="/view.aspx?sf=210356_post/GOT_Graph_section_2.png"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The importance of a vertex can be described by its centrality, of which there are several variants.</p>
<p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eigenvector_centrality">Eigenvector centrality</a>, for example, is the dominant eigenvector of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjacency_matrix">adjacency matrix</a>, and uses the number and importance of neighboring vertices to quantify influence.</p>
<p>This plot shows the 15 most influential characters in Season 7 of the TV show Game of Thrones. Jon Snow is the clear leader.</p>
<p><img src="/view.aspx?sf=210356_post/influential_characters.png"></p>
<p>Here’s how the Eigenvector centrality of several characters change over the books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.</p>
<p><img src="/view.aspx?sf=210356_post/eigenvector_books.png"></p>
<p>A clique is a group of vertices that are all connected to every other vertex in the group. Here’s the largest clique in Season 7 of the TV show.</p>
<p><img src="/view.aspx?sf=210356_post/clique.png"></p>
<p>Game of Thrones has certainly motivated me to learn more about graph theory (yes, seriously, <u>it has</u>). It's such a wide, open field with many interesting real-world applications.</p>
<p>Enjoy tinkering!</p>

210356Tue, 02 Apr 2019 20:27:02 ZSamir KhanSamir KhanDanish primary schools are using Maple to revolutionize mathematics education
https://www.mapleprimes.com/maplesoftblog/210325-Danish-Primary-Schools-Are-Using-Maple?ref=Feed:MaplePrimes:New Posts
<p>I recently had a wonderful and valuable opportunity to meet with some primary school students and teachers at Holbaek by Skole in Denmark to discuss the use of technology in the classroom. The Danish education system has long been an advocate of using technology and digital learning solutions to augment learning for its students. One of the technology solutions they are using is Maple, Maplesoft’s comprehensive mathematics software tool designed to meet the unique and complex needs of STEM courses. It is rare to find Maple being used at the primary school level, so it was fascinating to see first-hand how Maple is being incorporated at the school.</p>
<p>In speaking with some of the students, I asked them what their education was like before Maple was incorporated into their course. They told me that before they had access to Maple, the teacher would put an example problem on the whiteboard and they would have to take notes and work through the solution in their notebooks. They definitely prefer the way the course is taught using Maple. They love the fact that they have a tool that let them work through the solution and provide context to the answer, as opposed to just giving them the solution. It forces them to think about how to solve the problem. The students expressed to me that Maple has transformed their learning and they cannot imagine going back to taking lectures using a whiteboard and notebook.</p>
<p align="center"><img src="/view.aspx?sf=210325_post/MapleSkole1.jpg"></p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color:#808080;"><em>Here, I am speaking with some students about how they have adapted Maple to meet their needs ... and about football. Their team had just won 12-1.</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mathematics courses, and on a broader level, STEM courses, deal with a lot of complex materials and can be incredibly challenging. If we are able to start laying the groundwork for competency and understanding at a younger age, students will be better positioned for not only higher education, but their careers as well. This creates the potential for stronger ideas and greater innovation, which has far-reaching benefits for society as a whole.</p>
<p>Jesper Estrup and Gitte Christiansen, two passionate primary school teachers, were responsible for introducing Maple at Holbaek by Skole. It was a pleasure to meet with them and discuss their vision for improving mathematics education at the school. They wanted to provide their students experience with a technology tool so they would be better equipped to handle learning in the future. With the use of Maple, the students achieved the <a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/company/casestudies/stories/jasperestrup.aspx">highest grades in their school system</a>. As a result of this success, Jesper and Gitte decided to develop primary school level content for a learning package to further enhance the way their students learn and understand mathematics, and to benefit other institutions seeking to do the same. Their efforts resulted in the development of Maple-Skole, a new educational tool, based on Maple, that supports mathematics teaching for primary schools in Denmark.</p>
<p>Maplesoft has a long-standing relationship with the Danish education system. Maple is already used in high schools throughout Denmark, supported by the Maple Gym package. This package is an add-on to Maple that contains a number of routines to make working with Maple more convenient within various topics. These routines are made available to students and teachers with a single command that simplifies learning. Maple-Skole is the next step in the country’s vision of utilizing technology tools to enhance learning for its students. And having the opportunity to work with one tool all the way through their schooling will provide even greater benefit to students.</p>

<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color:#808080;"><em>(L-R) Henrik and Carolyn from Maplesoft meeting with Jesper and Gitte from Holbaek by Skole</em></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>It helps foster greater knowledge and competency in primary school students by developing a passion for mathematics early on. This is a big step and one that we hope will revolutionize mathematics education in the country. It is exciting to see both the great potential for the Maple-Skole package and the fact that young students are already embracing Maple in such a positive way.</p>
<p>For us at Maplesoft, this exciting new package provides a great opportunity to not only improve upon our relationships with educational institutions in Denmark, but also to be a part of something significant, enhancing the way students learn mathematics. We strongly believe in the benefits of Maple-Skole, which is why it will be <a href="https://www.maplesoft.com/mapleskole/">offered to schools at no charge</a> until July 2020. I truly believe this new tool has the potential to revolutionize mathematics education at a young age, which will make them better prepared as they move forward in their education.</p>

If we want to observe the intersection point closer we will use the zoom button that is activated when manipulating the graph. If we want to change the variable ("x" and "y") we enter the code of the button that solves and graphs. In spanish.</p>
