https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154520&ref=Feed
This application solves a set of compatible equations of two or three variables. For two variables, it also graphs the intersection point of the variable "x" and "y". If we want to observe the intersection point closer we will use the zoom button that is activated when manipulating the graph. If we want to change the variable ("x" and "y") we enter the code of the button that solves and graphs. For three variables, the intersecting planes are shown.

So, this was introduced into my son's high school Precalculus I class, and he really didn't understand it. After reading his textbook, I could understand why, the explanation was terrible. So, I decided to do a few examples for him, to show him how it would work. While I used Maple to do the computational pieces, I didn't use any built-in functions, I kept it as simple as possible.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=154517/b0e3e02e0b878253dcb11a11a2b75fce.gif" alt="Linear Optimization Examples" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>So, this was introduced into my son's high school Precalculus I class, and he really didn't understand it.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154388&ref=Feed
In this research work has allowed to show the implementation of applications developed in the Maple software for the creation of mathematical exercises given the different levels of education whether basic or higher.
For the majority of teachers in this area, it seems very difficult to implement apps in Maple; that is why we show the creation of exercises easily and permanently. The purpose is to get teachers from our institutions to use applications ready to be evaluated in the classroom. The results of these apps (applications with components made in Maple) are supported on mobile devices such as tablets and / or laptops and taken to the cloud to be executed online from any computer. The generation of patterns is a very important alternative leaving aside random numbers, which would allow us to lose results
onscreen. With this; Our teachers in schools or universities would evaluate their students in parallel on the blackboard without losing the results of any student and thus achieve the competencies proposed in the learning sessions.

The greatest benefits from bringing Maple into the classroom are realized when the static pedagogy of a printed textbook is enlivened by the interplay of symbolic, graphic, and numeric calculations made possible by technology. Getting Maple to compute the correct answer is just the first step. Using Maple to bring insights not easily realized with by-hand calculations should be the goal of everyone who sets a hand to improving the learning experiences of students. In this article we will show how Maple can be used to gain insight on what the norm of a matrix means.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=1430/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Norm of a Matrix" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>The greatest benefits from bringing Maple into the classroom are realized when the static pedagogy of a printed textbook is enlivened by the interplay of symbolic, graphic, and numeric calculations made possible by technology.

A 2d lower circular orbit C1 is given. <br />Find the Hohmann elliptic orbit that is tangent to both orbits which allows<br />Sally to maneuver on C1 then to get back to the circular orbit C2 alongside Igor.<br /><br />Though the math was correct , however the final result we found was not !! <br />It was somehow tricky to find the culprit!<br />We have to restate the problem to get the correct answer. <br />The animation was then set up using the correct data. <br />The animation is a good teaching help for two reasons:<br />1- it gives a 'hand on' experience for anyone who wants to fully understand it,<br />2- it is a good lesson in Maple programming with many loops of the type 'if..then'.<br /><br />Warning<br /><br />This particular animation is a hog for the CPU memory since data accumulated <br />for plotting reached 20 MB! This is the size of this article when animation is <br />executed. For this reason and to be able to upload it I left the animation <br />procedure non executed which drops the size of the article to 300KB.<br /><br />Conclusion<br /><br />If I can get someone interested in the subject of this article in such away that he or <br />she would seek further information for learning from other sources, my efforts<br />would be well rewarded.</p><img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=151351/24030360191a26b4d767de35f843bbd8.gif" alt="Hohmann Elliptic Transfer Orbit with Animation" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/><p>Abstract<br /><br />The main purpose of this article is to show how to use Hohmann elliptic transfer in two situations:<br />a- When one manned spaceship is trying to catch up with an other one <br />on the same circular orbit around Earth.<br />b- When delivering a payload from Earth to a space station on a circular <br />orbit around Earth using 2-stage rocket .<br /><br />The way we set up the problem is as follows:<br />Consider two manned spaceships with astronauts Sally & Igor , the latter<br />lagging behind Sally by a given angle = 4.5 degrees while both are on the same<br />circular orbit C2 about Earth.

<p>The idea of writing this article came to me on the 25th of June 2003 when I was listening to Cairo radio announcing that Maghrib prayer is due in Cairo city while I was sitting in my home town at 400 miles North East of Cairo. What is interesting is that at exactly the same time a next door mosque, in my home town, was also calling for the Maghrib prayer. This makes me wonder : how could it be that sunset is simultaneous at two locations separated by a distance of 400 miles from each other and at different Latitudes & Longitudes. As a reminder Maghrib prayer time occurs everywhere at sunset. <br />In what follows we explore this issue and try to prove or disprove the simultaneity of sunset at two different locations. In so doing we are led to some interesting conclusions and as a bonus we got ourselves an animation of the Terminator circle on the surface of the globe. <br />Aside from its modest value and its originality ( I am not aware of anything similar to it ) this article is a good exercise in Maple programming. <br />May this article be a stimulus for some readers to get interested in Astronomy which is a science as ancient as the early human civilizations. <br /><br /></p><img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=100509/thumb.jpg" alt="Terminator circle with animation" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/><p>The idea of writing this article came to me on the 25th of June 2003 when I was listening to Cairo radio announcing that Maghrib prayer is due in Cairo city while I was sitting in my home town at 400 miles North East of Cairo.

Derives the optimal cruising speed of an 18-wheeler given the price of diesel, the weight of the truck, the distance of the delivery route, and the monetary value of the cargo. Makes use of a study by Goodyear on the fuel economy of 18-wheelers vs. speed and weight. Uses many features new to Maple 12, including code regions, filled 3-D plots, and rotary gauges. At the end, you can turn dials to set the parameters and watch a "speedometer" (a rotary gauge) display the optimal speed under those settings.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=6573/thumb.jpg" alt="Optimal Speed of an 18-Wheeler" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>Derives the optimal cruising speed of an 18-wheeler given the price of diesel, the weight of the truck, the distance of the delivery route, and the monetary value of the cargo.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=6424&ref=Feed
The intent of this application is to generalize the meaning of the expression: "Solve the general triangle". Traditionally the expression means: "Given three parts of the triangle, find the remaining parts". In this application, the expression also includes other features of the triangle such as area, perimeter, height, centroid, orthocenter, incenter, and circumcenter. Because some features are "length preserving" and others are not, in the case of SAS, aBc is not the same as cBa.

Given a polar point with its radial and angular component in degrees, the system demonstrates, narrates, and animates the plotting of polar points. It also includes other petinents topics related to polar points.
System is intended for high school or junior college students taking a course in either Trigonometry or Precalculus.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=6303/Untitled-1.gif" alt="Plotting of Polar Points" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>Given a polar point with its radial and angular component in degrees, the system demonstrates, narrates, and animates the plotting of polar points.
