With Maple, you can create amazing visualizations that go far beyond the standard mathematical plots that you might typically expect (I wince every time I see yet another sine curve).
At your fingertips, you have
- plotting primitives that can be assembled in new and novel ways
- precise control over coloring (yay for ColorTools) and placement
- an interactive coding environment with inline plots, giving you quick visual feedback over aesthetic changes
- and a comprehensive mathematical programming language to glue everything together
Here, I thought I'd share a few of the visualizations I've really enjoyed creating over the last few years (and I'd like to emphasize 'enjoy' - doing this stuff is fun!)
Let me know if you want any of the worksheets.
