There are two ways of directly entering math into MaplePrimes. The first is the <maple> tag. Any text between <maple></maple> tags will be interpreted as Maple syntax and be replaced with a 2D GIF image of that syntax.
We're now getting into the final points. One thing that I envisioned for this site is some way for individuals to showcase themselves and if they wanted to share certain identifying and possibly fun information. Currently that section looks extremely corporate and wreaks of someone wanting spam targets.

- professor or university staff
- graduate student
- undergraduat student
Well, I've been working on a units poster for some time now... Okay, so this isn't the same as some of the blogs which are currently posted, but c'est la vie.
I recall thinking how close g (= 9.80665) was to π, and only now do I learn that that is more than coincidence. When the French came up with the metre, I guess they wanted something very close to three Parisian feet, and there were at least two possibilities: 1/10 000 000 the distance from the North Pole to the Equator or the length of a pendulum which has a half period of 1 s. As it turned out, they picked the former, but as both were close appropximations to the same standard, it ended up that `≈`(sqrt(g/m), pi/s), and thus, solving for g, we get that `≈`(g, pi^2).
Yesterday, I was in a Maplesoft management meeting where we concluded that the launch of MaplePrimes was to become the number one (or maybe two) priority for the company. So here it is ...
