Maplesoft regularly hosts live webinars on a variety of topics. Below you will find details on some upcoming webinars we think may be of interest to the MaplePrimes community.  For the complete list of upcoming webinars, visit our website.

Maplesoft Solutions for Math Education

This webinar will demonstrate how Maplesoft’s solutions for mathematics education help teachers bring complex problems to life, allow students to focus on concepts rather than the mechanics of solutions, and offer students the necessary practice to master the concepts being taught.

Key takeaways include:

• How to quickly and painlessly place incoming students in the correct math courses

• How you can use hundreds of intuitive Clickable Math tools to demonstrate and explore up to advanced-level problems and algorithms in the classroom

• How to automate your testing and assessment needs, specifically for math courses

• How to bring your STEM courses to life in an online environment

Introduction to Maple T.A. Placement Test Suite 10

This webinar will provide an overview and demonstration of the latest release of the Maple T.A. MAA Placement Test Suite. A result of the ongoing partnership between the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and Maplesoft, this product gives you the ability to provide the renowned MAA placement tests in an online testing environment. Learn how the Maple T.A. MAA Placement Test Suite can greatly simplify your placement process and explore the latest additions, including a streamlined interface and new tests to determine your students’ readiness for Precalculus and Algebra courses.

There is also a recording available from another live webinar we did earlier this month: Introduction to Maple T.A. 10.

Several Maple T.A. users have developed comprehensive sets of question content and assignments to support full courses in Maple T.A. These questions are available through the Maple T.A. Cloud, and we have decided to also post the associated course modules on Maple Primes as an alternative way of accessing this content.

Below you will find a link to the Introductory Calculus Maple T.A.. course module developed by Keele University.

This testing content is freely distributed, and can be used in your own Maple T.A. tests either as-is, or with edits.

These questions are designed to accompany the first semester of an introductory honours calculus course. The course is intended primarily for students who need or expect to pursue further studies in mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering and computer science. With over 250 question, topics include: basic material about functions, polynomials, logs and exponentials, the concept of the derivative, and lots of practise exercises for finding derivatives and integrals, and material about series.

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.

 

 

Announcing the 2014 Maple T.A. User Summit

Maplesoft will be hosting the 2014 Maple T.A. User Summit this October 22-24 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This conference discusses important trends in education, how technology is changing, and what all this means for educators and students. This is an opportunity for Maple T.A. users to learn first-hand how Maple T.A. is transforming testing and assessment, and non-users can also benefit by learning about current and future trends in online education.

Conference highlights include:

  • Expert advice from long term users on how they’re using Maple T.A.
  • Comprehensive hands-on Maple T.A. training
  • Demonstration of new features in Maple T.A., and where the technology is heading
  • Social events with Maplesoft staff and other educators from around the world

We invite users who are using Maple T.A. in an innovative way in their classroom to submit a presentation proposal by July 15th, 2014. For details, please visit: https://webstore.maplesoft.com/taconference/MapleTA_Summit_CFP.pdf

For more details, preliminary agenda, and to register, please visit our website: https://webstore.maplesoft.com/taconference/

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. 

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"?   

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!

Kim

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? 

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.

Thanks in advance.

We have a winner!...
