Four different techniques are given for obtaining a graph showing a surface with a normal and tangent plane attached. The work is a response to <a href="http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/147681-A-Problem-About-Plot-The-Part-Of-The-Surface">a MaplePrimes question asked on May 25, 2013</a>.<img src="/view.aspx?si=150722/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Drawing a Normal and Tangent Plane on a Surface" align="left"/>Four different techniques are given for obtaining a graph showing a surface with a normal and tangent plane attached.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=126623&ref=Feed
Several identities in vector calculus involve the operator A . (VectorCalculus[Nabla]) acting on a vector B. The resulting expression (A . (VectorCalculus[Nabla]))B is interpreted as the directional derivative of the vector B in the direction of the vector A. This is not easy to implement in Maple's VectorCalculus packages. However, this functionality exists in the Physics:-Vectors package, and in the DifferentialGeometry package where it is properly called the DirectionalCovariantDerivative.

<p>On observe d'abord la divergence du polynôme de Lagrange interpolant la fonction densité de probabilité de la loi de Cauchy lorsque la <strong>subdivision est équirépartie</strong> sur [-1;1]. C'est le <u>phénomène de Runge</u>.<br />
<br />
On observe ensuite qu'en choisissant une <strong>subdivision de Chebychev</strong> le phénomène de divergence au voisinage des bornes disparait.<br />

Cette activité a été réalisé dans le cadre de la préparation à l'agrégation interne de mathématiques de Rennes le 10 Mars 2010.<br />
Les nouveaux programmes du concours incitent à proposer des exercices utilisant les TICE. Il semble difficile de proposer une preuve convaincante du phénomène de Runge pour une épreuve orale.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=5055&ref=Feed
In this second of a three-part article, we use Maple to separate variables in a partial differential equation, then show how to obtain a solution of the resulting Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problem. The PDE is Laplace's equation in a cylinder, and separation of variables leads to an eigenvalue problem involving Bessel's equation. We solve this singular Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problem for the two cases of homogeneous Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions, and for the two cases of axial symmetry and asymmetry.<img src="/view.aspx?si=5055/EigenvalueProblemsforODEs-Part2_105.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Eigenvalue Problems for ODEs - Part 2" align="left"/>In this second of a three-part article, we use Maple to separate variables in a partial differential equation, then show how to obtain a solution of the resulting Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problem.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4740&ref=Feed
A collection of 37 worksheets for 3rd semester (multivariable calculus). Developed by Fr. Mike May and Dr. Russell Blyth, St. Louis University. Topics include introductory worksheets, multivariable limits, bivariate Taylor series, Lagrange multipliers, vector and gradient fields, visualizing regions of integration, line and flux integrals.
At Saint Louis University, our Calculus III course is being taught in a computer classroom where the students have access to Maple.
The strategy I have used for bringing Maple into the classroom is to introduce it through carefully designed worksheets, which I use as:
- Lecture aids with the instructor running the worksheet with a projection system.
- Handouts for the students
- Lab assignment that the class will start together as a substitute for a lecture.
- Supplemental homework assignments.
These worksheets include a significant amount of exploratory text and exercises. The exercises ask the student to repeat the examples in the worksheets with minor modification. I do not expect them to produce the code, but rather to copy and modify a code template, focusing on the results of the problems.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4740/calcIII.gif" alt="Calculus III: Complete Set of Lessons" align="left"/>A collection of 37 worksheets for 3rd semester (multivariable calculus).

The Paraboloid is a geometric figure very used in the engineering design. For this reason, it is important to know certain geometric characteristics like their area and volume besides the flow of a vectorial field that can cross this surface. In this worsheet, we will calculate these characteristics through double and triple integrals in different coordinate systems using the Maple commands.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1737/paraboloid.jpg" alt="The Paraboloid, a Case Study" align="left"/>The Paraboloid is a geometric figure very used in the engineering design.

Given a function of two variables f(x,y) and a domain point (x0,y0), this worksheet provides a plotting tool that can be used to plot the function f(x,y) superimposed on a plot of the line that is tangent to the graphed surface at the point (x0,y0,f(x0,y0)) and lies in a vertically oriented cutting plane determined by the direction in which the directional derivative is desired. The gradient vector is plotted in a plane parallel to the xy-coordinate plane along with a vector representing the direction associated with the directional derivative. The user has a choice of generating a single rotatable 3D plot or an animation consisting of multiple plots that show the effects of progressively changing the directions associated with the directional derivative.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1700/DirDerGra_edited.JPG" alt="Animation: the Directional Derivative & Gradient" align="left"/>Given a function of two variables f(x,y) and a domain point (x0,y0), this worksheet provides a plotting tool that can be used to plot the function f(x,y) superimposed on a plot of the line that is tangent to the graphed surface at the point (x0,y0,f(x0,y0)) and lies in a vertically oriented cutting plane determined by the direction in which the directional derivative is desired.
