Does anybody have any other ideas for getting Maple TA content (questions/banks/modules)? The application center doesn't currently meet our schools needs, and the contacts I've met at conferences are very hesitant to share their content. I can appreciate that because I've spent countless hours this school year writing over 300 questions, and I too would be hesitant to simply give them away.
I feel I've become pretty good at writing all different types of questions. I am a former computer programmer and that background has definitely helped me write difficult algorithms and complex components of maple-graded questions. However, the question-writing task has become very tedious and time consuming for my school's needs. Our school is a tablet school which means we are doing away with the standard book/pencil/paper and are planning on using Maple TA as our primary homework & assessment tool in our math classrooms. Therefore, I have been writing anywhere from 20 to 50 questions per chapter, and our current Algebra I book has 12 chapters so you do the math.
We are definitely looking for other means of obtaining content. We are even open to purchasing questions from someone who has the content that we need. Our biggest needs are high-school level Geometry and Algebra 2/Trigonometry. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
