## MaplePrimes Activity

Maple

I was asked if I would put together a list of top resources to help students who are using Maple for the first time.  An awful lot of students will be cracking Maple open in the next few weeks (the ones who are keeping up with their assignments, at least – for others, it sometimes takes little longer :-), so it seemed like a good idea.

So then I had to decide what to do. I know Top N lists are very popular (Ten Things that Will Shock You about Your Math Software!), and there are tons of Maple training resources available to fill such a list without any difficulties.  But personally, I don’t always like Top N lists. What are the chances that there are exactly N things you need to know, for nice values of N? And how often you are really interested in all N items? I just want to get straight to the points I care about.

I decided I’d try a matrix. So here you go: a mini “choose your own adventure” guide for getting to know Maple.  Pick the row that corresponds to what you want to do, and the column for how you want to do it.  All on a single, page, and ad-free!

And best of luck for the new school year.

## Maple 2017.2 update...

We have just released an update to Maple. Maple 2017.2 includes updated translations for Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and Spanish. It also contains improvements to the MapleCloud, physics, limits, and PDEs. This update is available through Tools>Check for Updates in Maple, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2017.2 download page.

## new edition of Mathematics Survival Kit...

Maple

We have just released the 3rd edition of the Mathematics Survival Kit – Maple Edition.

The Math Survival Kit helps students get unstuck when they are stuck. Sometimes students are prevented from solving a problem, not because they haven’t understood the new concept, but because they forget how to do one of the steps, like completely the square, or dealing with log properties.  That’s where this interactive e- book comes in. It gives students the opportunity to review exactly the concept or technique they are stuck on, work through an example, practice as much (or as little) as they want using randomly generated, automatically graded questions on that exact topic, and then continue with their homework.

This book covers over 150 topics known to cause students grief, from dividing fractions to integration by parts. This 3rd edition contains 31 additional topics, deepening the coverage of mathematical topics at every level, from pre-high school to university.

## Maple 2017.1 update...

Maple

We have just released an update to Maple, Maple 2017.1.  It includes improvements to the display on high resolution monitors for the debugger, MapleCloud, and help system table of contents. It also contains a variety of small improvements to the math engine, including in limit, series, Physics, typesetting, and PackageTools. This update is available through Tools>Check for Updates in Maple, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2017.1 download page.

## Maple and Chemistry...

Maple

We just posted a submission to the Maple Application Center that I thought people might be interested in. Mathematics for Chemistry isn't a typical application - it's an e-book, written in Maple by J.F. Ogilvie. It covers both standard mathematics topics chemistry students are expected to know,  such as calculus and linear algebra, as well as chemistry-specific topics like chemical equilbrium, quantum chemistry, and nuclear-magnetic-resonance spectra.

There's lots of interesting content on the Application Center, and the range of topics is always fascinating, but it's not every day I see an entire e-book come across my desk(top)!

If you are interested, you can find it on the Application Center, here: Mathematics for Chemistry
