Maple Player by Maplesoft
Mathematics comes to life with the Maple™ Player!
Explore mathematical concepts and solve advanced problems with these interactive calculators based on Maple technology.
The Maple Player is an application for the iPad® that lets you view and interact with documents created in desktop Maple. The Maple Player takes advantage of the powerful Maple computation engine, so you can enter values, move sliders, and click buttons to perform new calculations and visualize the results. You can even rotate 3-D plots with a brush of your fingertips!
This first release of the Maple Player for the iPad comes with a collection of interactive calculators and conceptual explorations that allow you to:
-Find solutions to integrals, derivatives, limits
-Visualize the methods for finding the area of a circle and the volume of a cylinder
-Understand the definition of limit
-Plot arbitrary functions
-Calculate solutions to linear systems
These documents can be used to liven up a classroom and to provide additional insight to students outside of class.
The Maple Player for the iPad will evolve quickly. Today, it can be used with the sample documents that are bundled with the application. In the next phase, you will be able to access a much wider collection of documents dynamically from an online repository. Ultimately, you will be able to use any Maple document on the iPad, whether distributed by us, contributed by the Maple community, or authored by you.
