## How to group grades for questions in an assignment...

It is possible to add groups of questions to an assignment in Maple T.A. But how do you see the grades divided into these groups? As an example, suppose we have two groups of questions say 5 questions in the group "algebra" and 5 questions in the group "geometry". The class grades show the grades for all 10 questions all together, but I would like to see the grades for two groups individually.

## Using if(a,b,c) and indexof(k,a,b,c,d...) in Maple...

I am trying to design a question to test for divisibility

\$n3=range(0,9,1); and students have to choose the next digit to make the number divisible by 4

if \$n3 is even the students must input 0,4,8 to be true

if \$n3 is odd the students must input 2 or 6 to be correct.

I am not sure how to us the if(a,b,c) in this case or if I should be using indexof....or both?  Any help would be appreciated.

## How to annotate in Question Designer?...

When creating questions with Question Designer, how can I include notes that are visible to instructors only? I don't want students to see certain info. Is it in the "information fields"?

## Möbius App Challenge – Submit by Mar. 31 for your...

by: Maple Maple T.A.

I just wanted to remind everyone that this quarter's Möbius App Challenge closes on March 31st.  The next prize to be awarded is an Xbox One Prize Pack.  Video games are supposed to be good for the brain, after all, so really, you owe it to yourself to enter.

To enter the contest, all you need to do is:

1) Create an interactive App in Maple

2) While in Maple, log-in to the MapleCloud through the MapleCloud palette.

3) Click on the Send Document to the Cloud button

4) Set the group to "Mobius@admin", then hit send.

The group is moderated, so it won't appear instantly, but once approved it will appear on the Möbius Project server, where people can interact with it through a web browser, in Maple, or download it for use with the free Maple Player.

Here are the full contest details and more information on creating and submitting Apps.

Good luck!

## Maple T.A., MathML and Chrome...

I came to know that Chrome no longer supports MathML. Will this be an issue with Maple T.A.9/9.5? Should I require my students to switch to Firefox instread?

## Quick start on Maple T.A. authoring?...

Hi,

My first post here.

I want to create my own questions on Maple T.A.  and it seems to me the User Guide is my only reference. Are there quick tutorials out there that I can refer to? Webinars would be helpful too.  I want to eventually create questions with partial credits.

## We have a winner!

by: Maple Maple T.A.

Congratulations to Andriy Andrusyk, from the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, who won last quarter’s Möbius Challenge with his application Heat Equation.  Dr. Andrusyk won a DSLR Camera Prize Pack.

Remember that you have until Mar. 31 to enter your Möbius Apps for a chance to win the next prize, an Xbox One!   Visit Möbius App Challenge for full contest details.

by: Maple Maple 2017 Maple T.A. MapleNet

Voting is open for the next individual prize to be awarded as part of the Möbius App Challenge.  The winner will receive a DSLR Camera Prize Pack!

Here are the finalist Apps:

If you do not have the latest version of Java installed, released last week, you may have problems viewing these apps, as older versions of Java seem to be quietly disabling themselves.  I’ve attached a zip file of the finalist Apps in case it is helpful. finalists.zip

Note that, if you ever have any problems viewing Apps in your browser, or simply want to work offline, you can always download a Möbius App and view it in Maple or the free Maple Player. To download a Möbius App, follow the link to the App and then click on the Download button near the top left of the page.

You can vote for your favorite through our Facebook page or, if you’re not on Facebook, send an email with your vote to Mobius-Project@maplesoft.com.

And remember, we are now accepting entries for the next quarterly prize. You could win an Xbox One!  See the Möbuis App Challenge for details.

Voting closes Jan. 30.
