   Maplesoft aims to promote innovation in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in high school students by partnering with various organizations, and sponsoring initiatives in education, research and innovation. Every year, Maplesoft commits time, funds and people to enhance the quality of math-based learning and discovery and to encourage high school students to strengthen their math skills.

   One such organization we partner with is The Perimeter Institute, a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics.  Maplesoft currently serves as its Educational Outreach Champion, supporting various initiatives that promote math learning and exploration. Perhaps the most popular of its student outreach program is the annual International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP), a two-week camp that brings together 40 exceptional students from high schools across the globe.  Each year students receive a complimentary copy of Maple, and use the product to practice and strengthen their math skills.  The ISSYP program also uses Möbius, the comprehensive online STEM courseware platform from Maplesoft, to offer preparatory course materials to students.  Completing lessons in Möbius aid in making the summer program a more productive and dynamic experience for the students.

   Who Wants to Be a Mathematician is a competition organized by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for high school students in North America. Maplesoft has been a sponsor of the contest for many years.  Maple T.A., the testing and assessment tool by Maplesoft, is used to administer the tests online, saving significant time and money for the organizers. When Maplesoft first introduced Maple T.A. to the contest, taking the competition from pen-and-paper tests to online tests, the number of contestants doubled, with about 2000 students participating in the contest. Maplesoft also donates prizes to the games in order to promote the use and love of math by high school students.  This year will be first time the competition moves international. Six students in the UK took the Round 2 qualifying test, with the use of Maple T.A., and qualified for the live, on-stage finals of the UK edition of the competition that took place at the 2017 Maths Fest in London. Maplesoft is also supporting the spread of the WWTBAM contest to Canada in 2017.

Maplesoft also sponsors two outreach initiatives in Texas A&M University.  The Summer Educational Enrichment (SEE) Math Program is a summer workshop attended by gifted middle school students. Students spend two weeks exploring ideas such as algebra, geometry, graph theory, and topology.  The University also conducts the Integral Bee every year, a math based contest for high school students.

In addition to the above key projects, throughout the year Maplesoft also sponsors and is associated with a number of other competitions, conferences, and educational initiatives. A few of these are listed below.

  • The Connecticut Science & Engineering Fair is a yearly, statewide science and engineering fair open to all 7th through 12th grade students.  An important objective of their program is to attract young people to careers in science and engineering while developing skills essential to critical thinking.
  • FIRST Robotics Competition is a high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 120 pounds.

I have tried to do it by the following command "File/Modelica/Import Modelica Library" in MapleSim GUI. An error appears saying "Modelica is a reserved name".

I think you can also reproduce it by downloading the Modelica library from the following web site: "https://www.modelica.org/libraries". And then importing it in the usual way by openning the package.mo file at the root directory.

I think I am missing something here, so any advise/information/minimal commentary would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Ovle

Hello everyone,

I am making a mobile robot simulation in the MapleSim environment and I need to create varriable (uneven) terrain, do I need an additional library for that?

If not how can I do so?

Thanks for your time!

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a custom component to find the minimum between 3 values.

I know that in Maple it is done by:

l := [5, 2, 3];
min(l[1], l[2], l[3]);

However I could not do the same with a custom component. I provided a screenshot below, where h(1), h(2), and h(3) are my input values and min(h1,h2,h3) is my output.

Thanks in advance,

Canberk

Hello everyone,

For some reason, the rising edge block is not working how it is supposed to.

The component decription is as follows: "

The Rising Edge component triggers a Boolean expression, true, in the output, y, when a rising edge is detected at the input, u.

I am applying a step signal. (red waveform)

and this is the probe's measurement:

Why is it not detecting the rising edge?

Thanks,

John.

Hi ,

I have recently got to know this software and its capabilities and was wondering if I can use it to start an initial systems design for an E-scooter as a first step (virtual validation). then feed this data to a designer which will design and cooperate with an engineer to realise the design again on this platform.

SO i have the range of my scooter , the weight it carries , the enviroment's average topography which i will be simplifying it at the first step to a 15% hill climb , and finally some dynamic/static restrictions... which i hope ican build upon . like adding chasis loads and analysis to data.

I want it to give me the cell number of the batteries , verify the loads and give me a electric-motor description . 

 

this was the road map.

 

Thank you for your kind replies .

We have just released a major update to MapleSim and the MapleSim family of products. This update includes significant enhancements in the areas of model development and toolchain connectivity, including:

  • Live simulations let you see results as the simulation is running, so you can track progress and react to problems immediately.
  • A new 3-D overlay option lets you easily compare simulation visualizations by overlaying one visualization on top of another
  • Tools for revision control enable a structured approach to managing and tracking changes to your model, making it easier to manage projects when multiple engineers are working on the same model and reducing development risk.
  • MapleSim now supports direct import of models created in other FMI-compatible software, providing even greater cross-tool compatibility and opportunities for co-simulation.
  • The MapleSim Connector, for connectivity with Simulink®, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI, for exporting MapleSim models to other FMI-compatible tools, have been expanded to allow you to explore simulation results involving exported MapleSim models from within MapleSim, even though the simulation was done in the target tool.

 

This update is being distributed through the automatic Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website. See the MapleSim 2016.2  downloads page for details on obtaining this update.

Graphical Programming with MapleSim in Vector Mechanics to Structures 2D

At the present time before constructing or starting to develop a mechanical structures project it is necessary to model it using graphic programming; In this opportunity and used MapleSim as a computational tool belonging to the company Maplesoft. The modern approach to modeling and simulation makes the fabrication of complex designs easy to solve. We will cover some examples taken from the engineering being implemented in Maplesim with insertion of physical objects; To be seen in real time through video output; Then integrates with Maple to analyze the equations and data through the static and dynamic behavior of the fabricated. Solved methods of physical block components include functionality for many domains: rotational and translational mechanics, multi-body dynamics, logic, and structural blocks; With techniques like: Drag-and-Drop Physical Modeling Environment and Create Custom Components Directly From Their Equations, thus the systems that would take hours or days to build from equations; In principle they can be created in a fraction of time using MapleSim, so it can incorporate significantly more complex graphical algorithms. In MapleSim, I use the revolutionary multibody technology that perfectly combines advanced multi-domain modeling tools to provide all the functionality you need in one environment.
