Rubik’s Cube Maplet
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=5711&ref=Feed
This Maple package uses Maplet technology to create a version of the "Rubik’s Cube" interactive 3D game.
Copy the CubicRubik.mla file into the LIB directory of your Maple installation (for example, c:\Program Files\Maple 11\lib\CubicRubik.mla).
Create a new worksheet and input the following:
restart;
with(CubicRubikPackage): ShowCubicRubik();
Lucky gaming!

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=1646&ref=Feed
In this worksheet methodology and examples of fractal rendering of 3D curves are presented. Deterministic and probabilistic approaches for obtaining attractor for a given collection of Iterated Function System (IFS) are used. This Maple application can be treated as the fourth one prepared by the same authors. Some improvements of Maple code for fractal rendering of linear segments are described.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1646/FractalCurves.gif" alt="On Fractal Modeling of 3D Curves and Wireframes" align="left"/>In this worksheet methodology and examples of fractal rendering of 3D curves are presented.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=1503&ref=Feed
JavaViewLib provides a superior viewing environment to enhance plots in Maple. It adds many new features to plots' interactivity, such as mouse-controlled scaling, translation, and auto-view modes. JavaViewLib implements arc-ball rotation, making object viewing smoother and less directionally constrained than in Maple. Furthermore, JavaViewLib offers a point modeling feature that allows plots to be manually manipulated.
These features operate not only in Maple worksheets but also in HTML exports.
However, the predominant feature of the JavaviewLib is the capacity to export Maple-generated models into one of two applet based viewers - one optimized for speed, the other for customizability. No longer do plots need to be converted to static images when creating html pages from Maple worksheets. One can also export plot data to a variety of other formats such as VMRL or JavaViewLib's own XML format in which data can be viewed as a markup tree or further developed. With JavaviewLib, models created in other modeling applications such as Maya and Mathematica can easily be imported into Maple's viewing environment.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1503/catheil.JPG" alt="JavaViewLib 3.22" align="left"/>JavaViewLib provides a superior viewing environment to enhance plots in Maple.

<p>I wrote a Maple package called "Clock" to teach my children how to read the clock. With the package you can generate graphics of analogous clocks showing given or random times as well as animated graphics of clocks showing given time ranges. That way you can explain the clock, demonstrate the motion of its hands, and practice with your children.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=1457/thumb.jpg" alt="Teaching the clock with Maple" align="left"/><p>I wrote a Maple package called "Clock" to teach my children how to read the clock.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4405&ref=Feed
We model the motion of two identical pendulums swinging in parallel planes, attached by a spring. We describe the motion by the pendulums' angles of deflection over time.
We assume that the pendulums swing in the x-z plane, their hinges are d units apart on the y-axis, they have unit length and unit mass, and their mass is concentrated at the ends. Pendulum 1 swings about the origin, and pendulum 2 swings about the point (0, d , 0). We assume the spring has natural length d .<img src="/view.aspx?si=4405/pendulums.gif" alt="Pendulums Coupled by a Spring" align="left"/>We model the motion of two identical pendulums swinging in parallel planes, attached by a spring.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=1388&ref=Feed
Dynamic Systems (as they are used in this worksheet) are mechanical systems comprising of masses and constraints. Constraints are a set of rules that have to be followed as the masses are allowed to move freely. For example, a very simple dynamic system might be that of a pendulum. The constraint of a pendulum is that one mass has to stay at a fixed distance from a fixed mass (rigid-rod constraint). Examples of more complex system are a double pendulum and a triple pendulum.
4 case studies are presented in this work sheet:
Damped Oscillation,
Resonance,
Bead on wire, and
Vibrating Tower.
A practice problem can be found at the end of the work sheet.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1388/1103.gif" alt="Analysis and Simulation of Simple Dynamic Systems" align="left"/>Dynamic Systems (as they are used in this worksheet) are mechanical systems comprising of masses and constraints.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4298&ref=Feed
Suppose you have one or more stationary charged particles on a plane. These stationary particles produce an electric field at all points on the plane. Let us place a moving charged particle on this plane. The moving particle will experience a force exerted by the electric field, causing it to accelerate. Will it move, and if it does, where will it move? I have always struggled to draw a mental picture of how I expect P will behave under the electric field before actually turning to my pencil and paper to do the calculations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4298/particle.gif" alt="Animation of the Motion of a Charged Particle Under an Electric Field" align="left"/>Suppose you have one or more stationary charged particles on a plane.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4293&ref=Feed
In this article we shall demonstrate how to use Maple to study the kinematics of an agricultural machine, in particular a dung scraper. The propelled end of the supporting bar is connected to the chain running around two teeth wheels and moves ahead with constant velocity. The lead end follows the guiding bars. Srapers are fixed to the supporting bar. We have to study the trajectory, velocity and acceleration of the business ends of scrapers. Results will be plotted and animated.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4293/1079.jpg" alt="Kinematics of Agricultural Machines" align="left"/>In this article we shall demonstrate how to use Maple to study the kinematics of an agricultural machine, in particular a dung scraper.

In this maplet, students can learn the dynamics of trajectories under the influence of gravity. The student enters the mass, initial speed and angles of a baseball into text areas, and the maplet computes the path of the ball, in particular, whether the hit is a home run or not. The student can also enter the dimensions of the baseball field.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4213/baseball.jpg" alt="The path of a baseball" align="left"/>In this maplet, students can learn the dynamics of trajectories under the influence of gravity.

If you drop two stones into a pond, you will see a pattern of interference in the colliding waves resulting from the two stones. The same effect happens when waves from two light sources interact with each other. This Maple application shows what happens when waves of any kind interfere with each other, using animations and pictures. We then take a look at Young's Double Slit Experiment, which examines light waves in particular interfering with each other.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4136/doubleslit.gif" alt="Interference" align="left"/>If you drop two stones into a pond, you will see a pattern of interference in the colliding waves resulting from the two stones.
