Using Maple Learn on YouTube and in the Classroom

Length: 52 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Tom Crawford
Product: Maple Learn

Dr. Tom Crawford (University of Oxford) will share some example worksheets created in Maple Learn that he uses to help to teach 'Introductory Calculus’ to his undergraduate students and his online audience using YouTube. The ‘Oxford Calculus’ video series which integrates Maple Lea...

Math Software Solutions that Keep Up With Your Students

Length: 55 Minutes
Presenter: Karishma Punwani
Product: Maple,Maple Learn

Technology can play a critical role in supporting and enhancing math education, with enlightening visualizations, instant feedback, motivating examples, and hands-on explorations. But selecting that technology typically requires some trade-offs, since students in grade 10 have very different needs f...

The Student VectorCalculus Package - Parts 1 & 2

Length: 56 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In this two-part webinar, Dr. Lopez will examine the structure and functionalities in the Student VectorCalculus package, providing insight into how to understand, and to optimize the use of, this very powerful package. These two webinars answer the question "What does a user need to know about this...

Enhance Faculty Experience and Skills using Maple in the 21st Century Classroom

Length: 36 Minutes
Presenter: Lance Gooden
Product: Maple

What role does faculty confidence and skills play in the use of a Computer Algebra System (CAS) in increasing student success in college calculus courses? In this webinar, Lance Gooden from Johnston Community College discusses his efforts to implement Maple within the classroom in the Calculus seque...

Essentials of Tensor Calculus - Part 5

Length: 51 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In the final webinar of this series, we’ll explain the covariant derivative. We’ll finish a presentation on surface curvature in which we'll make the connection between the Riemann curvature tensor and the curvature of a surface where the terms "principal curvatures" and "total (or Gauss...

Essentials of Tensor Calculus - Part 4

Length: 54 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In the fourth webinar of this series, we’re discussing tensor calculus itself. Since the essence of differential calculus is a study of how infinitesimal changes affect scalar functions, extending this study to vectors and tensors leads to the Christoffel symbols (connection coefficients) that...

Essentials of Tensor Calculus - Part 3

Length: 50 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In a series of five webinars, Dr. Robert Lopez will present the essential ideas of the tensor calculus. The central concepts are contained in three sections: Preliminaries from Multivariate Calculus, Tensor Algebra, and Tensor Calculus. In the third webinar of this series, we investigate the ques...

Essentials of Tensor Calculus - Part 2

Length: 42 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In the second installment of the Essentials of Tensor Calculus series, Dr. Robert Lopez will explain reciprocal vectors and show that bases of tangents and gradients are reciprocal. This is important because these distinctions underpin the difference between contravariance and covariance. The transi...

Essentials of Tensor Calculus - Part 1

Length: 43 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In a series of five webinars, Dr. Robert Lopez will present the essential ideas of the tensor calculus. The central concepts are contained in three sections: Preliminaries from Multivariate Calculus, Tensor Algebra, and Tensor Calculus. In this first webinar of the series, Dr. Lopez will begin a ...

Puttin’ on the Ritz

Length: 62 Minutes
Presenter: Dr. Robert Lopez
Product: Maple

In this webinar, we will look at the Rayleigh quotient for finding eigenvalues of symmetric matrices, and its relation to the Rayleigh-Ritz technique for approximating solutions of the Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problem. The gap between optimization and approximating eigenvalues of an ODE is spanned...
