Product Description

  • Maple - mathematics software tool providing a mathematical computation engine with integrated numerics and symbolics. Thousands of mathematical functions, hundreds of 2-D and 3-D plotting routines, and professional publishing tools. The Maple site licence includes MapleNet and Precalculus and Calculus Study Guides. In addition Teaching Calculus with Maple and Maple Player are available free of charge via the MapleSoft website and Maple Player for iPad is available via the Apple App store.

  • Maple Flow - an all-new whiteboard-style environment that allows engineers to easily brainstorm, develop, and document their design calculations. Specifically targeted at the simple to mid-range mathematics that make up the majority of engineering analysis, Maple Flow gives users a scratchpad-style environment that automatically keeps calculations live as they refine, reposition, and develop their work. For more information, watch the Introducing Maple Flow recorded webinar.

  • Maple Learn - Maplesoft's online tool for teaching and learning mathematics that puts all the visualisation, solving tools, and interactivity you want at your fingertips, while also giving you the flexibility to work through steps like you would on paper. To see some of what Maple Learn can do, explore the Maple Learn Example Gallery.

  • MapleSim - an advanced system-level modelling and simulation tool that applies modern techniques to dramatically reduce model development time, provide greater insight into system behaviour, and produce fast, high-fidelity simulations. With MapleSim, educators have an industry-proven tool to help bridge the gap between theory and practice, engaging students with complex, real-world examples and preparing them for the challenges they will face in industry. The site licence also includes MapleSim Connector and MapleSim Control Design Toolbox.

  • Overseas Campus Options: Expand your Maplesoft Chest licence to cover on-site use at your overseas campuses. One licence is required for each main product to be covered overseas. Prices are based on Home Campus size.
