I am planning on getting Maple 18 Student Editon and I am wondering if the calculus palette is in Maple 18 student edition.

Thanks

### A happy Maple recipient...

Last month, we received a very kind note from a recipient of one of our sponsorships. Maplesoft sponsors several academic and commercial events throughout the year, providing free copies of Maple or MapleSim to lucky attendees. Audrey was one of the winners of the Elgin Community College Calculus Contest, where she won a copy of Maple. Here’s what she had to say:

Thank you so much for the Maple license.  I have become familiar with Maple during the last school year.  At first the commands were like Chinese to me and I had a rough time getting anything done, but once I made a connection between the commands and what they were doing it was a lot easier.  Even without former knowledge of computer programing, the commands are increasingly intuitive.  Maple has been a huge help to me doing my homework and projects, and even as I was studying for the competition it was useful for checking my answers.  Another reason that I love Maple is that it provides visuals for the difficult concepts we learned in class, such as shell method in Calc II and mixed partial derivatives in Calc III.  I enjoy math, but I thank that Maple has enriched my experience along the way.

Thank you again for your generous gift,

~Audrey~

It’s always nice to hear how students and professionals alike are succeeding with the help of Maple. If you’d like to share your experience, please send an email to customerservice@maplesoft.com or post it here on MaplePrimes.

### Why does Maple not use the +C at the end of an ind...

We're starting on indefinite integrals in my 1st year calculus class.

A quick example would be int(sin(x), x);=-cos(x)+C

Maple doesn't add the +C on the end of it's solution. Can someone explain or point me to a resource? I've tried searching but I can't find an answer.

### approximation of mathematical functions...

hello everyone..

please...

I need help to write a code to calculate the riemann sum approximation of the curve cos(sqrt(x^2+y^2)+1

calculate the actual volume using integration

use the ranges x=[-2pi to 2pi]=y, and 20 subdivisions.

also display the curve and the parallelepiped approximations on the same plot.

Thank you for your help!

hi everyone,

I need help writing a maple code to calculate the normal to the curve X^2-2X at x=1

and also display the curve, the tangent, and the normal on the same plot in the range x=[-2,2].

thank you for your help!

### question on notation.... abs(1,x) vs x/abs(x)...

March 11 2015

When I take the derivative of abs(x), I use the chain rule and get this

When I ask Maple to differentiate abs(x), I get this:

I read the help file on "signum", and I expected this to work, but it does not.

How can I represent signum in normal calculus syntax when working the derivative of functions involving abs(x)?

### find values of a at which an implicit function has...

I've got

f(x,y)= a.exp(1+xy) +( a^2 )*sin(x)+1

for which I've shown that there exists an implicit function x=g(y). ( df/dx <>0)

and df/dx = a*exp(1+xy) +( a^2 )*cosx now in the neighborhood of P=(0,0) for the implicit function to exist I'd need a*exp(1+xy)*y <>0 but at P, wouldn't this be 0?

Given, g(y)=x, how do I find the max,min,saddle points?

### Integration with u, du and erfc erro term...

Hi all,

I'm having a challenge solving an integration that has some error functions associated with it.

Description:

I am trying to find the Riemann midpoint of the integral. All the parameters are known except the u and du terms which came into the expression following a laplace transform.

the output I get from the above input is shown below, and as it can be seen, the u and du terms coupled with a complimentary error function still exist. I have tried the "simplify" function and it returns similar output expression.

Any help will really be appreciated.

Thanks :)

### Mean value theorem by maple 13...

Hi there,

I want to use maple 13 for calculating mean value theorem for differentiable function  f:=piecewise(-2≤x≤0, -x2 ,0≤x≤2,x2

on the interval [-2,2]. But an error occured, that is,"function must be continuous".Any help will be appreciated.

Hello,

How can I write a code to calculate the Rieman Sum for  y=x^1/2 [0..4] using

left hand rule and 100 subdivision.

Thank you

### minimum of a function using determinants...

February 22 2015

Determine using determinants the range of values of a (if any) such that
f(x,y,z)=4x^2+y^2+2z^2+2axy-4xz+2yz
has a minimum at (0,0,0).

From the theory, I understand that if the matrix corresponding to the coefficients of the function is positive definite, the function has a local min at the point. But, how do I get the range of values of a such that f is a min? Is this equivalent to finding a such that det(A) > 0?

2.

Now modify the function to also involve a parameter b: g(x,y,z)=bx^2+2axy+by^2+4xz-2a^2yz+2bz^2. We determine conditions on a and b such that g has a minimum at (0,0,0).
By plotting each determinant (using implicitplot perhaps, we can identify the region in the (a,b) plane where g has a local minimum.

Which region corresponds to a local minimum?

Now determine region(s) in the (a,b) plane where g has a local maximum.

I don't understand this part at all..

### Hide variables in results of Jacobian / Diff ...

Hi,

for my simulation I have to calculate several gradients and jacobian matrices. The equations are quite complex and with my current setup hard to read.

Here is some exampel code:

restart;
with(VectorCalculus);
SetCoordinates(cartesian[x, y, z]);
alias(u = u(t, x, y, z), v = v(t, x, y, z), w = w(t, x, y, z)); alias(eta = eta(t, x, y, z));
U := VectorField(`<,>`(u, v, w));
Divergence(U);
Jacobian(U);
Diff(U, t);

The Divergence operator gives me a very compact result:

But Jaobian and Diff look like:

To achive a better readability I want to do two things (if possible):

1) hide the independet variables (t,x,y,z) in the result of Jacobian, Diff

2) display the result of Diff in a row vector (3x1) instead

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance for your help

This presentation is part of a series of webinars on creating questions in Maple T.A., Maplesoft’s testing and assessment system designed especially for courses involving mathematics. This webinar, which expands on the material offered in Part 1, focuses on using the Question Designer to create many standard types of questions. It will also introduce more advanced question types, such as sketch, free body diagrams, and mathematical formula.

The third and final webinar will wrap up the series with a demonstration of math apps and Maple-graded questions.

Clickable Calculus Series – Part #1: Differential Calculus

In this webinar, Dr. Lopez will apply the techniques of “Clickable Calculus” to standard calculations in Differential Calculus.

Clickable Calculus™, the idea of powerful mathematics delivered using very visual, interactive point-and-click methods, offers educators a new generation of teaching and learning techniques. Clickable Calculus introduces a better way of engaging students so that they fully understand the materials they are being taught. It responds to the most common complaint of faculty who integrate software into the classroom – time is spent teaching the tool, not the concepts.
