MaplePrimes Announcement

Maplesoft will be hosting the 2nd annual Maple T.A. User Summit June 15 - 17 in New York City, USA.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about new trends in online education while networking and socializing with fellow educators and Maple T.A. users in the city that never sleeps!

Conference highlights include:

  • Hear from long term users who have used the Maple T.A. technology to transform their classroom experiences.
  • Get comprehensive hands-on Maple T.A. training.
  • Learn about new technology developments at Maplesoft and how they can provide exceptional user experiences that have the power to ‘surprise and delight’.
  • Network with other educators and Maple T.A. users from around the world.
  • Take advantage of the social events organized as part of this summit. Socialize with peers and enjoy the sights and sounds of this amazing city.

We invite users who are using Maple T.A. in an innovative way in their classroom to submit a presentation proposal by March 18, 2015. For details, please visit: https://webstore.maplesoft.com/taconference/MapleTA_Summit_CFP.pdf

Math powers the world. From tracking the spread of an epidemic to designing a new rocket engine, mathematical equations allow us to understand a challenge and formulate an approach to solving it. Everywhere around us, math is ubiquitous; an equation determines how your thermostat controls your home furnace; a mathematical algorithm is used to encode the signal from your cell phone. More than ever, we rely on mathematics to make our lives better. And continually, our mathematical techniques get more refined as we solve more and more complex problems.

As we take on that challenge, Maple 2015 is here to help. With direct access to over 12 million datasets, Maple is ready to compute the world. To make this possible, we partnered with Quandl, a well respected curator of financial, economic and census data. Quandl prides itself on the quality of the data they provide, while at the same time maintaining full transparency of their data sources.

More complex challenges require more sophisticated mathematical techniques. For years, Maple has been pushing the envelope to make powerful algorithms easily accessible. Maple 2015 not only extends the Clickable Math concept to also include clickable data but in addition introduces a host of innovations to make it easier than ever to go from problem to solution.

Just one example is improvements to Maple’s one-step app creation functionality, which instantly generates an interactive Math App with plots, sliders and dials as well as typeset math so you can interactively explore mathematical expressions and plots. These Apps are now more customizable than ever, and can be used not only in Maple but by sharing them in the MapleCloud, they can be used in the Maple Player, and online using only a web browser.

The mathematical power under the hood of Maple 2015 is keeping pace and we have invested tens of thousands of hours of development into new algorithms and improvements to existing ones. The Maple 2015 capabilities in areas like physics computations, differential equations and symbolic integration have made leaps forward. Statistics has also been an area of particular focus and in addition to new tools for data smoothing, regression analysis and code generation for the popular R language, Maple 2015 also has additional functionality to support teaching and learning statistics.

Of course, there’s lots more. You can see full details, lots of examples, and an overview video at What’s New in Maple 2015.

Math powers the world and whether you are a student, instructor, researcher or engineer, Maple 2015 is here to help.

The code of the animation:

A := plots[animate](plot3d, [[16*sin(t)^3*cos(s), 16*sin(t)^3*sin(s), 13*cos(t)-5*cos(2*t)-2*cos(3*t)-cos(4*t)], t = 0 .. u, s = 0 .. 2*Pi, color = red, style = surface, axes = none], u = 0 .. Pi, frames = 100):

B := plots[animate](plot3d, [[16*sin(t)^3*cos(s), 16*sin(t)^3*sin(s), 13*cos(t)-5*cos(2*t)-2*cos(3*t)-cos(4*t)], t = u .. Pi, s = 0 .. 2*Pi, color = "LightBlue", style = surface, axes = none], u = 0 .. Pi, frames = 100):

plots[display](A, B);
