Hi
In connection with recent developments in the Physics package, we now have mathematical typesetting for all the inert functions of the mathematical language. Hey! This is within the Physics update available on the Maplesoft Physics: Research & Development webpage

I think this is an interesting development that will concretely change the computational experience with these functions: it is not the same to compute with something you see displayed as %exp(x) instead of the same computation but flowing with it nicely displayed as an exponential function with the e in grey, reflecting that Maple understands this object as the exponential inert function, with known properties (all those of the active exp function), and so Maple can compute with the inert one taking these properties into account while not executing the function itself - and this is the essence of the inert function behaviour.

Introducing mathematical display, copy and paste for all these inert functions of the mathematical language concretely increases the mathematical expressiveness of the system, for teaching, working and also for presenting ideas.

Attached is a brief illustration.

Maplesoft is a long standing supporter of the Who Wants to Be a Mathematician contest for high school students. For years, we have donated Maple as prizes to winners of the national and regional contests.

This year, being the 25th anniversary of Maplesoft’s incorporation, the company decided to support several projects that encourage the use of math amongst high school students and young adults. We dedicated a bigger budget towards projects that would enable us to make a significant impact on students and impress upon them the need for math and science in their future careers.

One project we undertook this year is giving an extreme makeover to the Who Wants to Be a Mathematician contest! With Maplesoft as a “Technology Sponsor”, the contest that was administered on pen-and-paper moved to a digital format. We donated our testing and assessment tool, Maple T.A. to administer the tests online, making the software accessible to every student that participated. This meant the students took an online test, and were automatically and instantly graded using Maple T.A.

The 2013 competition is underway, and the results are extremely positive:

  • The number of students that participated in the contest doubled this year, with over 2000 students from over 150 schools participating.
  • The competition introduced a second level of tests, making the competition more rigorous. After the first elimination round, eligible contestants moved to a second round with questions of increased difficulty levels.
  • By avoiding much of the paper work and manual corrections, the organizers saw significant savings in time and money.

Custom test questions were created in Maple T.A., which were accessed by students from a server hosted by Maplesoft. The simple and easy to use interface of Maple T.A. enabled the students to take the test without spending time learning the tool. Maple T.A. supports the use of standard mathematical notation in both the question text and student responses. Maple T.A. also allows free-response questions, including questions that have more than one correct answer.

Who Wants to Be a Mathematician is a math contest for high school students, organized by the American Mathematical Society (AMS), as part of its Public Awareness Program. Ten students will be chosen for the semifinals and two will qualify for the finals to be held at the Joint Math Meetings in January 2014.

More information about the contest that is currently in progress can be found on the AMS website

 

This is just a question on terminology. The name "combine" implies pulling terms together. Yet, when applied to something like sin(x)^2 it has the effect of expanding it:

r:=sin(x)^2;
combine(r);

 

Which seems counter-intutive to me. I tried first expand(r) but that did not expand it.

Fyi, in Mathematica the function to do the above is called

Sin[x]^2;
TrigReduce[%]

    1/2 (1 - Cos[2 x])

As Mathematica does not have a Combine[] function.

So, I am just wondering about the naming, that is all. I would never have thought first that a command called combine() will expand sin(x)^2.

 

 

Hi, all

I want to get some formular by the maple. I have some S domain transfer function, want to transform to the Z domain, but I don't know the way to realize it, is there any library function like "c2d" as in the Matlab? but "c2d" can not deal with the expression.

Thanks for replay to me!!!

New user. How do I launch the clickable math interface as in the demo video in maple 17 student? I also need help with entering/ solving simultaneous equations step by step.

Hi,

I'm preparing for GRE and i came across this question from 800score.com while reviewing concepts for probability.

In a deck of 52 standard playing cards, what is the probability that pulling a single card from the deck 
will produce a black card?

Please...

I have bracket matching turned on but donot get the rectangular yellow box around matching brackets as shown in the attached picture. Can anyone help me how to turn this feature on for both input and output?

I have the following equation, I want to solve it for b keeping a and c fixed.

5*b^5+(60-5a)*b^4+(125+50c-80a)*b^3+(594c-445a-775)*b^2+(2324c-1005a-3270)*b+3000c-750a-3000=0.

How to solve it in maple?

 

 

 

I am using Maple 15 and every time I try to plot this equation it doesnt seem to want to plot. This is the code I keep trying to input:

plot(3*e^(-x)*x-e^(-x)-1.5*e^(-x)*(x^2)+e^(-x)*(x^2)*log(x),x=0..9,y=-1..0.6);

Every time I get "Plotting Error, empty plot"

The equation came from the original differential equation .5(d^2y/dx^2)+(dy/dx)+.5y(x)=ln(x)e^(-x)

 Also When i try to plot this equation:

-.5*e^(-10*x)*sin(10*x)-.5*e^(-10*x)*cos(10*x)+(3/2)=300

Hello,

I've been trying to force maple to find a solution of this differential equation:

ode := -((D@@2)(y))(r)-2*y(r)/r+y(r) = (2-V(r))*u[0](r)

dsolve(ode, y(r));

gives

y(r) = r exp(-r) _C2 + (exp(r) + 2 exp(-r) Ei(1, -2 r) r) _C1 - 4

exp(-3 r) |- | |

For a math class, we have to create a roller coaster. Part of the coaster consists of two banked curves. I've tried looking it up but Maple isn't very clear on how to create the. So, how do you create banked curves in Maple?

Today's SMBC strip by Zach Weinersmith is a silly math joke but it was pretty much begging for implementation.

So, here is a simple brute force Maple program to compute the Fouriest transform of an integer.

fouriest := proc(n::posint, ob::posint:=10)
local b,f,cap,i,rdx,fc;

Hi,

 

I have two differential equations describing a solar sail in 2D.

One is my radial direction and one is the tangential direction.

I have plotted r(t) and theta(t) but I want r(theta) so I have assigned my two differential equations and initial conditions, have my two plots for r and theta in terms of t and then I have used the following command to plot in polar coordinates:

 

Hi,

I'm new in Maple and i've a project to do. I've to find at what time is 90% of the steady-state concentration of C achieved. And the eq is 

z'=k(1/2-z)(1/3-z), where k=0.3. 

So i had worked in Mathematica before and i know that it would look something like that in there: 

eqn1 = 0 == k (1/2 - z[t]) (1/3 - z[t])

DSolve[Evaluate[{eqn1}], z[t]].

But i have no idea how to find this 90%. I hope that someone will...

Shifted Data IVP...

Hello everybody,

I just realised Maple is allowed for my upcoming exam after New Year.

My plan is to have templates of the most common math problems, I might encounter for quick solutions.

Anyway, I have run into a problem with Laplace shifted data, particularly initial value problems. I have been searching for HOURS, and feel like I have look up everything on google, maplesoft and other sites without succes.

I hope some of you are able to help me. The exercise is:
