From October 19-21, the third installment of the Maple T.A. and Möbius User Summit took place. Making the move back to Europe this year, the three-day conference was held at the beautiful Vienna University of Technology in the heart of Vienna, Austria. The scope of this year’s event expanded to include Maplesoft’s newest product, Möbius, which is designed to help academic institutions move their STEM courses online.

This year’s Summit brought together participants from 20 countries, including Australia, the Czech Republic, Poland, China, Norway, India, Egypt, Japan, the Netherlands, and many others. Needless to say, there is great interest in learning more about how Maple T.A. and Möbius can play a role in shaping the educational landscape.

Video recordings of each presentation will be made public soon, so keep an eye out for them!

Getting Down to Business

Presentations were divided into 5 overarching themes as they relate to Maple T.A. and Möbius: Shaping Curriculum; Content Creation; Experiences Using Möbius; Integrating with your Technology; and The Future of Online Education. Presentations were given by representatives from schools across Europe, including DTU (Denmark), TH Köln (Germany), Imperial College of London and University of Birmingham (UK), Vienna UT (Austria), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Université de Lausanne (Switzerland), and others.

Many talks showcased the impressive versatility of Maple T.A. and Möbius to have practical applications in all STEM subjects, from Nuclear Engineering to Operations Management and many subjects in between.

Perhaps the discussion that gave Maplesoft the most feedback was led by Steve Furino from the University of Waterloo, who divided attendees up into groups to formulate a wish list of what they’d like to see in a courseware authoring environment. The list had over 40 items.

Notable Quotables

Many thought-provoking statements and questions were posed, but the following few stood out above the rest:

  • “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could take the best course from the best instructor anywhere in the world?”
  • “With Maple T.A., we can divert resources away from grading and over to tutoring.”
  • “Möbius rescued us!”

Get the party started!

While each day was full of invigorating conference discussions, evenings provided ample opportunity to ditch the suit jacket and tie, and enjoy the lively Austrian atmosphere. The first evening at the Zwölf Apostelkeller was the perfect venue to break the ice while satisfying those taste buds longing for some traditional Viennese cuisine. Once Schnitzel, Käsespätzle (a delicious German version of Mac and Cheese), Strudel, Kaiserschmarren (shredded pancake), and a glass or two of wine hit the table, people soon forgot about the pouring rain outside.

It would have been hard to top the social in the Apostelkeller, but the next evening sure tried.

Day 2 finished with an impressive formal dining experience at the historic Gerstner Beletage in the Palace Todesco, built in 1864 and situated directly across from the Vienna State Opera House. The 500-room palace was home to Eduard Freiherr von Todesco, a well-known Viennese banker.

The skies finally cleared enough to take some photos, but only after most people had gone home. Thankfully Aron Pasieka, Möbius Project Manager, was still around to get some great shots of the city. Enjoy!

From beginning to end, the entire Summit was very well received by everyone who attended.

We would be remiss if we did not thank our incredible hosts at the Vienna University of Technology. Stefanie Winkler, Professor Andreas Körner, and Professor Felix Breitenecker were beyond helpful in bringing many of the finer details together, as well as helping many people overcome the language barrier.

We can’t wait to do it all again in London, England in 2017, and hope to see just as many new faces as familiar ones.

It is possible to display something like:

4 + 3 = x - 1

without Maple actually adding the 4 and 3 and putting that as a 7?

 

Same idea with sqrt. Is it possible to write sqrt(9) in a worksheet and actually seeing it as square root of 9 rather than a 3. Maple automatically simplifies everything so it's kinda hard to show a step by step process. Is there a way to solve this problem?

To be clear, I am talking about typing this into an active worsheet line. I know I can do a lot of this if I just do text becuase text lines obviously don't execute. They just display text. The reason I need to have this working is becuase sometimes I would have a command line where I want some of it to be excuted and some of it not so I can't just use text.

Thank you

 

Hello people in mapleprimes,

 

I wonder if there is not any way to control the timing of substitution.

For  example,

x:=(t^(1-s)+s^(1-2*s))^a;mu:=c^(a-b)/'x';

brings mu := c^(a-b)/x. Please note that I made x unevaluated with '' around x, so that,

into the output of mu, the definition of x of (t^(1-s)+s^(1-2*s))^a does not appear.

But, in this case, when I typed the expression of

1+mu

and clicked return, the definition of x is inserted into the result of 1+m, though

I want x to remain x yet.

Surely, if I wrote ''x'' in stead of 'x', 1+mu does not contain the definition of x.

But, in that case as well, when I have other following calculations, in those the definition 

of x should apear, which I don't like.

 

On the other hand, when I write as

x:=(t^(1-s)+s^(1-2*s))^a; x:='x';
mu:=c^(a-b)/x; 1+m;

surely as x is initialized once, the result of mu and 1+mu does not cotain the definition of x.

But, in this case, I have to write x:=(t^(1-s)+s^(1-2*s))^a; when I want the definition of x

to be inserted. Though in this case the definition of x is short, original relations I have and

haven't writen above is a little more complicated, so that to insert is not desiable.

 

Aren't there any good way to evaluate the value of particular variables and to leave them

unevaluated at each time I want to choose each one?

 

I hope I could have written my question as easly understood.

And, thanks in advance.

It's funny how Maple automatically evaluates an expression, it can be frustrating at times, but suppose the user wants it entered the way he types.

a:=sin(-4-Phi)

                   - sin ( 4 + Phi)  #automatically evaluates the negative outside

b:=sin(x+y+z-Phi)

                   - sin (-x -y -z + Phi)

 

Even though both expressions are the same it seems Maple prefers -sin to +sin, in the second example above Maple has now 3 extra negatives. 

Is all we need just a double set of single quotes around our expression so that when we recall that variable it returns exactly how we entered it in?

b:= ''sin(x+y+z-Phi)''

           b:= ' sin(x+y+z-Phi) '

 

b;

      sin( x + y + z - Phi)

 

Would that work?  Where would that fail?  Is there a better way?

When using seq function below in the second call, it does not generate a sequence of functions with 'a' being 1, 2, and 3, and I had expected. 

First seq function call is just to show that it works without the function "x ->" wrapping.

I could of couse use unapply as in the third call, but I had expected the second call to work.

Am I doing anything wrong, or is this a Maple bug?



 
No need to hurry, esthetics is not a vital issue ... but thanks in advance.

PS : sorry for the syntax errors "waves" generated in the original Word document

Doing the following:

Why is int used when defining F not evaluated to x^2/2 when used to defined function F as shown in (2), when the int is evaluated when used separately in (3)?

I have lots of subsections for organization and have all the outputs at the end...  is there any way to force all/any sections/subsections to remain closed while the whole page is being evaluated? I still want the section to evaluate, but I want it to stay closed.

Is there a help page which explains why braces provide the partial text evaluation in this code?

RopeLen := 30;RopeAddLen := .5;

plots[textplot]([1, 1, typeset("%1", (({(1/2)*RopeLen}+{(1/2)*RopeAddLen})^2-{(1/2)*RopeLen}^2)^(1/2))])

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a simulation for standing wave to prove that the combination of 2 waves in opposite direction can create standing wave. So I use these:

> restart;
> with(plots):
> W1:=A*cos(omega*t-k*x);

> W2:=A*cos(omega*t+k*x);

> W:=W1+W2;

> SW:=(A,omega,k)->animate(plot,[{W1,W2,W},x=-4..4,y=-4..4,color=[red,green,blue],scaling=constrained],t=0..5,frames=10);

> display(SW(2,2*Pi,5),insequence);

It did work if SW is a function with one variable, now I need 3 variables (A,omega,k);

It said: "Plotting error, empty plot"

Please show me my mistake or an another method. Thank you

I have this matrix

 

uA := Matrix([[-w^2+x^2+y^2-z^2, -2*(w*y+x*z), 2*(-w*x+y*z)], [2*(-w*y+x*z), w^2+x^2-y^2-z^2, -2*(w*z+x*y)], [2*(w*x+y*z), 2*(-w*z+x*y), -w^2+x^2-y^2+z^2]])

and I would like to evaluate the variables like this

 

x = -x, y = -y, z = -z, w = -w

I tried this

Eval(uA, x = -x, y = -y, z = -z, w = -w)

but it didnt work.

 

Any suggestions??

 

Thank you so much

 

 

Hi!! i am working on assignment.

h:= x-> (x^17-x*sin(x^16))/x^49+exp(sqrt(x+8))*ln(abs((cos^4*(x)-5)));

 

i want to find the value of the h(10)

i use eval , but it comes out a function, not a solution.

please.help!!

I have been here before...  My head is full of cotton, as usual.

 

f := proc (t) 2*t^3+9*t^2-60*t+1 end proc;
deq:=diff(f(t),t);
df := t->deq;  ## this is most likely one of my problems.
plot(df(t),t=-10..10);
isneg := x -> if is(df(x) < 0) then df(x) else 0 end if;  ## and, another??
plot(isneg(t),t=-10..10);
Plt1:=plot(isneg(t),t=-10..10);
plots:-display(Plt1);
isneg(0.12017234);

The if statement is not fully evauated.

I am missing something.  What?

Hi everyone,

I have a great problem with the evaluation of following definite integral

> restart;

> int((t-x)^2)/(1+2t+(1/2)t^2-ln(t^2+2t+2)t-ln(t^2+2t+2)+arctan(1+t)t^2+2arctan(1+t)t+ln(2)t+ln(2)-(pi/4)t^2-(pi/2)t)^2,t=0..x)

I have tried different classical commands but Maple doesn't give an answer. Probably, it's just a silly fault.

Does anyone knows how to solve it?

Thanks.

I have this (which finds each Fourier term of a sequence)

term := proc(lst,k::integer)
    local n;
    n := nops(lst);     
    seq(lst[m+1]*exp(-I * 2*Pi/n *(k*m)),m=0..n-1);
end proc;

Now I call it as

term([1,2,3],1);

and it returns

So it evaluated and convert the exp(-I * 2*Pi/n *(k*m)) terms. I wanted to keep these as is, so I can compare result with textbook. Then do simplify if I wanted to above output. 

I can do that if I use small pi instead of large Pi, like this

term := proc(lst,k::integer)
    local n;
    n := nops(lst);     
    seq(lst[m+1]*exp(-I * 2*pi/n *(k*m)),m=0..n-1);
end proc;

and now r:=term([1,2,3],1); return

Which is what I wanted, but with Pi instead of pi.  now how would I evaluate the above?

I tried to use subs to replace small pi with large Pi, but it does not work

subs(pi=Pi,r); #error

Then I tried eval, which worked

eval(r,pi=Pi);

So, I can use the above method.

My question is: Is the above a common way to handle such case? Is there another way to use Pi but at the same time prevent Maple from automatic simplification of the exp() terms?
