System of Equations 2x2 and 3x3
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.

Given an initial guess, x0, we can compute an x1, then an x2 and so on.

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.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154220&ref=Feed
This is a problem that appears in many calculus texts. The problem is that of girding the equator of the earth with a belt, then extending by one unit (here, taken as the foot) the radius of the circle so formed. The question is by how much does the circumference of the belt increase. This problem usually appears in the section of the calculus text dealing with linear approximations by the differential.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=149511&ref=Feed
<p>An example of a related-rates problem in differential calculus that asks for the rate of change of surface area on a sphere whose volume expands at a constant rate is <a href="http://www.maplesoft.com/teachingconcepts/detail.aspx?cid=7">solved here</a> via the syntax-free paradigm in Maple. </p>
<p>Recently, after presenting the solution in a Maplesoft Webinar, I was asked if it were possible to see an animation for this process. So, after a quick presentation of a solution, this worksheet will try to answer the request for an animation. Of course, we first have to consider just what is it that is to be displayed in the animation. It's easy enough to show an expanding sphere, but the question of real interest is the varying rate of change of surface area. How is the change in surface area to be visualized, let alone animated?</p><img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=149511/related-rates.JPG" alt="Rate of Change of Surface Area on an Expanding Sphere" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/><p>An example of a related-rates problem in differential calculus that asks for the rate of change of surface area on a sphere whose volume expands at a constant rate is <a href="http://www.maplesoft.com/teachingconcepts/detail.aspx?cid=7">solved here</a> via the syntax-free paradigm in Maple. </p>

This month's article generalizes the solutions suggested by Adri van der Meer and Doug Meade, and shows the trajectory of an arbitrary point on the ladder as its top slides down a vertical wall and its bottom moves away from that wall along an orthogonal "floor." The location of the arbitrary point on the ladder is controlled by a slider, the animation being generated with the updated Explore command.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=148714/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: The Sliding Ladder" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>A January 10, 2013 post to <a href="http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/142194-Sliding-Ladder-Animation" class="plainlink">MaplePrimes</a> asked for an animation of the trajectory traced by the center of a "sliding ladder."

<p>Any kid who's ever been entranced by an advent wreath knows that a tapered advent candle shrinks faster on Sunday night when it's new and slender than on Saturday night when it's old, stubby and caked with melted wax. How much faster? As an apropos application of math during this Christmas season, <strong>we derive a formula for the height of a burning tapered candle as a function of time</strong>. Assuming the candle has the shape of a cone when it is new and that it loses volume at a constant rate as it burns, we show that the height of the candle shrinks roughly in proportion to the cube root of time.</p><img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=100332/thumb.jpg" alt="How Fast Does An Advent Candle Burn?" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/><p>Any kid who's ever been entranced by an advent wreath knows that a tapered advent candle shrinks faster on Sunday night when it's new and slender than on Saturday night when it's old, stubby and caked with melted wax.
