  • What new capabilities does Maple V Release 5 have?

    -Exporting HTML: Maple V Release 5 allows the user to export text, graphics, and mathematical computations as HTML. At first SPIMSOW ran into a small problem when we tried to export a file. Maple exports graphics by saving mathematical image files (gifs) in an images folder so that when you up load Maple notebooks onto your web server, you also need to upload the images folder. This will ensure that your graphics and mathematical computations also show up. To learn more about putting your Maple notebook on the Web go to our Tutorials Page .

    -Spreadsheets: Maple V Release 5 allows the user to create mathematical spreadsheets. In these spreadsheets the user can define a type of function and manipulate that function.


  • What has improved?

    -Palettes: Maple V Release 5 has also integrated the use of function palettes. This allows users to find the function they need without having to know a lot about typing the functions in for themselves. Again this makes Maple seem a lot more like a calculator.

    -Manipulation of Graphics: Maple V Release 5 allows the user to rotate graphics, choose plot format, axis design, and manipulate graphs in many more exciting ways.

    -Saving Graphics: Now Maple allows the user to save graphics within their notebook. When you open the notebook later on, the graphics do not disappear, as they did in earlier versions.

  • Hyperlinks: Hyperlinks allow viewers to connect from one page to another or to different parts of one page. The viewer then can see a concept presented in many different ways or connect to additional information that is pertinent to the topic at hand. Maple has improved its hyperlinks for web use. To learn more about creating hyperlinks in Maple go to our Tutorials Page.

  • What capabilities would we like to see Maple perform in the future?

    -Interactive Web pages: Maple V Release 5 has the same Web capabilities as Mathematica, but not as MathView™. Although Maple notebooks can be exported in HTML and viewed on the web, users cannot manipulate the mathematics on the web pages. In order for a user to make changes, they would need to download the web pages and open them with the Maple on their computers. Again, this procedure requires that the user have Maple.
