Question: Intermittent Plots in Maple 18

August 28 2014 Doug Meade 2868
Maple 18

Phil Yasskin (Texas A&M) has prepared a maplet for the Maplets for Calculus proiect. While this maplet works, in Malmem 18 it sometimes does NOT display the plot. We don't see this behavior in Maple 17, The maplet is attached for your convenience, if you are interested in seeing if it works for you.

The problem is difficult to describe. Basically, at the end of the problem, users can elect to see a plot of the function with(some) asymptotes. The code creates the plot when the problem is created, and displays this plot in the worksheet. But, when the plot is requested within the mapmlet, it sometimes does not show in the empty plot window.

Any explanations (or followup quesitons) will be greatly appreciated.
