Never before has the educational landscape been changing as fast as it is today, driven by a new generation of students who are growing up with instant access to on-demand information. This generation relies on ubiquitous network access and takes for granted technology that permeates every aspect of their lives. Phones and tablets are everyday companions and are used to connect with their peers, take classroom notes and research school projects. Beyond being mere consumers...

Each announcement of a new version of Maple TA, including the latest Maple TA 9, see

http://www.maplesoft.com/products/mapleta/new/index.aspx

contains the sentence:

"... includes connectors to Blackboard® and Moodle™"

But I have never seen any bit of information about

- how to install

- how to use

- what it is capable of

- etc...

I use combinat[randperm] in MapleTA to get random permutations. But everytime I call the corresponding question bank, I get the same sequence of permutations. Even a randomize();with(combinat);randperm... doesn't change this behaviour but every single student should get different homeworks. Any idea?

New versions of Maple T.A. and the Maple T.A. MAA Placement Test Suite are now available. Highlights include:

- Adaptive questions provide students another chance when they give an incorrect response. Knowing the student is having trouble, the question can be adapted to walk the student through the problem one step at a time, allow students to try a simpler version of the same question before retrying the original, or whatever the instructor feels is appropriate.

This should be astonishingly simple as a MapleGraded question but it stubbornly refuses to agree with me.  Everything is marked incorrect ... one wishes for some feedback from MapleTA as to what is going on.

Student enters a vector.  The goal is to have the dot product with <5,3,1> to be whatever value is chosen for $p, which is in the$ANSWER field:

$m:=<5,3,1>;$d:=LinearAlgebra:-DotProduct($m,$RESPONSE);is(($d-$p)=0);

We have MapleTA installed on our own server and would like to edit the Login page so that students realize they are on OUR MapleTA page ... students are not particularly observant (no, really!) and often try to login at any MapleTA site they find on the internet.  There is nothing in the UserGuide on editing either the Login or Class pages.

Thanks!

Please explain details of the fmt string in the mapleta function numfmt.  The help page only says

Returns the value of x, formatted according to the template fmt.

For example,

numfmt("#.00", 20.9)

I have a mapleTA question that blocks students from starting a mastery assignment until I tell them how to do the problem. But some students are gaming it but finding out the problem from an earlier section. I want to game back by making the answer change depending on the wall clock, that is the section they are in. To do so, I need a clock function to tell the time. Since I can call maple inside mapleTA, a maple solution will also work.
