Workshop: Clickable Math Syntax-Free Maple    

Course ID - CTD0495b

Short Title: Clickable Math     

 Audience    Faculty 
Length of Workshop:       2  hours 

* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.

This session will teach participants how to use Maple in a syntax-free manner to solve problems drawn from algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, and single-variable calculus. Interface features such as palettes, tutors, Assistants, task templates, and the context menu system flatten the learning curve for Maple, making it possible to calculate without first having to master commands and the related syntax. Participants will learn the basic features of Maple how to write and interactive document in Maple how to use the palettes, tutors, Assistants, task templates, and the context menu system in support of  syntax-free calculations how to use point-and-click technologies for solving standard problems in algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus of a single variable.  The lecture will be interactive, with participants using lap top computers to solve mathematical problems and create visual representations of mathematical concepts to facilitate learning and inspire more students to pursue STEM fields. Faculty participants will complete printed worksheets to demonstrate competence of the objectives listed above. These worksheets will be completed during the workshop. A committee consisting of Quin Hearn, North Campus Chairperson of Mathematics, and faculty of her choice will evaluate the faculty product for completion of the above objectives.



As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Create and solve problems form algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, & calculus, using advanced Maple problem solving tools
  •  Create simple & advanced visualizations in mathematical concepts in the areas of algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, & calculus of a single variable
