I'm disappointed because I was hoping to use Maple for both the writing and the evaluation of some of my math projects.

Ie it looks like I can use Maple to do the math, but when I want to write about it I should probably just write the latex myself.

thanks pagan - I tried that and it worked as well. Explore looks nice because it allows multiple variables (as opposed to the animation solution, which lets you "scrub" time, but no other variables)
I also tried to get it to work with DEtools[DEPlot] but ran into syntax issues (i like the direction arrows). Maybe I'll try tomorrow - it's late here so I'll be going to bed soon.
Thanks again,
Sean

You rock! Thanks!
I prefer version 2 because I like seeing the direction arrows in the plot/animation.
Using the animation setup gives a time slider which allows me pretty much to do what I wanted to accomplish.

I've been thinking about Preben's response and piecewise equations and I'd like to know if with a piecewise equation like:
eq:=diff(q(t), t) =piecewise(t<8760,3-3*q(t)/10^4, -3*q(t)/10^4);
is it possible in Maple to parameterize the 8760?
What I mean is that I'd like to either plot (or model and plot) multiple versions of the same equation with different versions of that value (eg 4380, 8760, 17520). I tried putting in another variable to the q() but ran into issues - I probably did it wrong. I'm sure there must be a way...
Also I'd like to know if it possible to attach sliders (gui manipulators) to variables in equations and be able to manipulate plots by changing the inputs. (This is something I've seen in "Derive"). I think the answer is no, but I thought I'd ask.
I appreciate the help so far.
Thanks again
