The Math Forum from Drexel University is a very large, well-organized, collection of links and information on various topics in math research and education. It's collaborative in nature and you can add your suggested links.
The Maple User Group mailing list was once the main forum for asking questions and discussing Maple. Eventually the comp.soft-sys.math.maple newsgroup was proposed and the MUG list faded away. Some answers to specific questions are archived here, and all messages from 1998-2003 are available as digests.
Robert Israel's homepage contains a number of useful Maple resources, including the Maple Advisor Database.
I've set up a collaborative book to accummulate a large selection of Web links of interest to Maple users.

Mathematics Genealogy Project...

Mathematics Genealogy Project at North Dakota State University. Trace your academic pedigree. Most people I know who got their math PhD’s in Western universities seem to some pretty famous names.
A Maple package for Stochastic Differential Equations. Developed at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt.
David Joyner, US Naval Academy Annapolis. Useful links to various math topics as well as a good collection of the author’s Maple work including coding theory and cryptography.
John Stembridge, University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Maple packages for symmetric functions, posets, root systems, and finite Coxeter groups. A wonderfully entertaining collection of math quotes.
Alec Mihailovs, Tennessee Tech University. Rich collection of links, Alec's own Maple programs, papers on Maple applications, course material for various math courses, and a wide range of other useful information for Maple and non-Maple topics.

Maple in education?...

October 28 2005 Alasdair 88
Is there an online forum/discussion board devoted to the use of Maple in mathematics education? The forums I know about (here, usenet groups), seem mostly technical. But I have some education questions I'd like to ask - I just don't know where to ask them. cheers, Alasdair
Hopefully this is fun ... Recently in doing a bit of research for a marketing project (yes, I research math for marketing projects), I ran across this 10 Greatest Mathematicians list. I am not certain, how credible the author's analysis is but thought this crowd would be perfect to offer some insight into this very interesting question -- "Who was/is the greatest mathematician of all time?". The 10 choices are from the original Web site and are listed in alphabetical order. Comments more than welcome ... almost mandatory :-)
Dear Maple Users, I have the following problem: How to find the best-fitted function P(x,y) = ax+by+cxy+d to the following data: i= 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 xi= 150, 152, 154, 156, 156, 157, 158, 158 yi= 134, 136, 106, 61, 90, 124, 41, 135 I know that in Maple functions that can solve interpolation and approximation problems with one variable are implemented. But how to solve the problem with two variables? Best regards, Wieslaw Kotarski kotarski@gate.math.us.edu.pl
Does anyone have advice for content in a maple tutorial for calculus students and any math students for that matter? I am doing a tutorial to help students avoid the fear of Maple and try to help them to avoid common mistakes. Any suggestions would be great!
How can one set math as the default input mode for a worksheet when using Maple Input notation? I find that creating a new execution group always puts me back in text mode. Of course, I fail to notice this and enter math expressions with annoying results. 2-D Input Notation will remain in math mode. I am using OS X (10.3.9).
It's obvious how to use Maple 10 for creating a document, but has anyone used Maple 10 for presentations? I'm going to present in a seminar in a couple of weeks and have some Maple demonstrations and graphics to show the group. I'd be interested in hearing tips, suggestions, experiences and ideas for presenting mathematical content to a group from within Maple. (I'm familair of course, with Powerpoint and LaTeX slides, and the LaTeX Prosper package. I'd use LaTeX/Prosper except that then I have to embed the Maple in the presentation. It would be more convenient if I can use Maple solely.)
