Maple provides a large collection of built-in, point-and-click learning tools for most key topics in calculus, algebra, and more. Over 50 interactive tutors offer focused learning environments in which students can explore and reinforce fundamental concepts.
Many tutors allow students to work step-by-step through problems. Students can perform steps themselves, ask for hints, or ask Maple to perform the next step. For example, one tutor gives students practice applying the different rules of integration. Another provides help with performing Gaussian elimination on matrices, allowing students to focus on the steps without getting lost in the arithmetic.
Tutors frequently use 2-D and 3-D plots and animations, reinforcing concepts that are sometimes difficult to visualize. Examples include volumes and surfaces of revolution, eigenvector plots, Newton’s method, gradients, space curves, conic sections, and DE plots.
Tutors are available for single variable, multivariable, and vector calculus, precalculus, linear algebra, complex variables, numerical analysis, and differential equations.
