"Maple 16 provides elegant new tools which allow teachers and students to solve mathematical problems in small steps, a process which is so important when students are first learning complex mathematics. The new Smart Popups and DragtoSolve tools even suggest possible next steps, and offer a preview of the effect the chosen operation would have. These tools help students learn mathematics through guided experimentation in an environment in which they cannot perform an invalid operation. Maple 16 also offers a large number of Math Apps that provide interactive illustrations of a wide range of pure and applied mathematics, saving teachers the need to do the programming themselves. Plus, they’re fun to play with!"
