Maplesoft Seminar Series

Join us for the Introduction to Maple 11 Webinar. This is your chance to get a preview of the recently-announced Maple 11. In this one-hour demonstration and Q & A forum, you will learn about the:

  • new smart-document user interface,
  • enhanced mathematical power, and
  • increased connectivity to other tools

All of which will dramatically improve your mathematical and technical problem-solving projects.

Teaching with Maple 11 Webinar presents essential Maple 11 techniques for revitalizing your math class room. Learn how Maple 11 can free the instructor and student to focus on concepts rather than on manual manipulation and how a new generation of product features greatly enhance the presentation quality of your mathematical work.

Introduction to Maple T.A. 3.0 Webinar provides an overview of the new and improved features in the latest release of Maple T.A. Focusing on ease of use, this release contains an enriched authoring environment, a brand-new Gradebook, and additional authentication and administration features.

Maple 11 for Simulink Webinar will introduce you to the power of the Maple product line for rapidly developing solutions and deriving highly efficient engineering system models for easy implementation in your simulation tool-chain.

Within an hour, you will learn how to:

  • reduce project time “from weeks to days” by making advanced engineering math work for you
  • generate optimal design parameters using automated optimization tools
  • import Simulink models into Maple for analysis and simplification
  • rapidly develop physical models from first principles for easy implementation in Simulink

Engineering Solutions with Maple 11 Webinar will introduce you to the power of the Maple product line for developing solutions and deriving dynamic system models for rapid implementation in your design tool-chain.

This live Webinar will demonstrate Maplesoft's range of products for engineering, including:

  • Maple 11
  • The Maple Toolbox for MATLAB
  • BlockBuilder for Simulink
  • BlockImporter for Simulink
  • Global Optimization Toolbox
  • MapleNet
