Several Maple T.A. users have developed comprehensive sets of question content and assignments to support full courses in Maple T.A. These questions are available through the Maple T.A. Cloud, and we have decided to also post the associated course modules on Maple Primes as an alternative way of accessing this content.

Below you will find a link to the Introductory Electricity & Magnetism Maple T.A.. course module developed by the University of Guelph.

This testing content is freely distributed, and can be used in your own Maple T.A. tests either as-is, or with edits.

The Introductory Electricity & Magnetism course module is designed to cover a single-semester course in electricity and magnetism for physical sciences students at the first-year university level. The questions are designed to span the topics listed below, allowing for practice, homework or testing throughout the semester. Using the Maple engine that is part of Maple TA, a custom grading engine has been developed to provide even more flexible grading of scalar and vector responses. This partial grading engine can be configured to, among other things, assign part marks for missing units, transposed or missing vector components or missing algebraic terms.

Topics include:

  • Cross Products
  • Coulomb’s Law
  • Electric Fields
  • Point Charge Distributions
  • Continuous Charge Distributions (Integration)
  • Electric Potential
  • Electric Potential Energy
  • Electromotive Force
  • Resistance
  • Capacitance
  • Kirchhoff’s Laws
  • Magnetic Fields
  • Magnetic Fields Due to Current Carrying Wires
  • Forces on Wires in Magnetic Fields
  • Forces on Charges in Electric and/or Magnetic Fields
  • EM Waves
  • Two Source Interference
  • Double Slit Interference
  • Single Slit Diffraction
  • Diffraction Gratings
