In Maple, Clickable Math covers a broad collection of features aimed at providing the user with easily discoverable, natural functionality for scientific and mathematical computing, without requiring an understanding of Maple syntax, commands, or the Maple programming language. In Maple 2017, a new Interactive Plot Builder joins this collection, providing an easy-to-use interface for creating and customizing a wide variety of 2-D and 3-D plots. In this Tips and Techniques, I will discuss some particular aspects of the new Plot Builder assistant, and how it fits into the Clickable Math framework.<img src="/view.aspx?si=154272/plotbuilder.png" alt="Using the New Interactive Plot Builder" align="left"/>In Maple, Clickable Math covers a broad collection of features aimed at providing the user with easily discoverable, natural functionality for scientific and mathematical computing, without requiring an understanding of Maple syntax, commands, or the Maple programming language.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153693&ref=Feed
Since they were first introduced in 1965, Groebner bases have proven to be an invaluable contribution to mathematics and computer science. All general purpose computer algebra systems like Maple have Groebner basis implementations. But what is a Groebner basis? And what applications do Groebner bases have? In this Tips and Techniques article, I’ll give some examples of the main application of Groebner bases, which is to solve systems of polynomial equations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153693/thumb.jpg" alt="Groebner Bases: What are They and What are They Useful For?" align="left"/>Since they were first introduced in 1965, Groebner bases have proven to be an invaluable contribution to mathematics and computer science.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153662&ref=Feed
Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs. For some situations, you want to generate some combinatorial or algebraic values, such as a list or a polynomial; in other situations, you need random numbers, from a distribution that is uniform or more complicated. In this article I'll talk about all of these situations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153662/thumb.jpg" alt="Generating random numbers efficiently" align="left"/>Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs.

Users sometimes ask how to make their floating-point (numeric) computations perform faster in Maple. The answers often include references to special terms such as evalhf, the Compiler, and option hfloat. A difficulty for the non-expert lies in knowing which of these can be used, and when. This Tips and Techniques attempts to clear up some of the mystery of these terms, by discussion and functionality comparison.<img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="evalhf, Compile, hfloat and all that" align="left"/>Users sometimes ask how to make their floating-point (numeric) computations perform faster in Maple.

<p>If the number of Online Help queries per topic or the number of click-throughs on errors for a particular area of functionality is anything to go by, then plotting is hands down the most significant functionality in Maple. I saw some data on those recently, and what leapt out was just how much plotting dominated.</p>
<p>When functionality is introduced that affects most kinds of 2D or 3D plots, then it likely affects a great many Maple users in important ways. While there are help pages on the new 2D plot sizing and 3D plot shading options in Maple 18, I find myself using these new options so often I feel that its important to mention them as tips for visualization techniques.</p><img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Custom Plot Sizing and Shading" align="left"/><p>If the number of Online Help queries per topic or the number of click-throughs on errors for a particular area of functionality is anything to go by, then plotting is hands down the most significant functionality in Maple.

<p>Hopalong attractors are fractals, introduced by Barry Martin of Aston University in Birmingham, England. This application allows you to explore the Hopalong by varying the parameters, the number of iterations, the iterates' symbol size, and the background color choice. You can also change the starting values of each of the three orbits by dragging the cross symbols appearing in the plot. Full details on how this application was created using the Explore command with a user-defined module are included.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153557/95fa944692de1fb724cb7e758e6c56e5.gif" alt="Hopalong Attractor" align="left"/><p>Hopalong attractors are fractals, introduced by Barry Martin of Aston University in Birmingham, England.

<p>Every year my extended family does a "secret santa" gift exchange. Each person draws another person at random and then gets a gift for them. At first, none of my siblings were married, and so the draw was completely random. Then, as people got married, we added the restriction that spouses should not draw each others names. This restriction meant that we moved from using slips of paper on a hat to using a simple computer program to choose names.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=34985/thumb.jpg" alt="Secret Santa Selection" align="left"/><p>Every year my extended family does a "secret santa" gift exchange.
