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.
We are very interested in hearing your feedback on the Maple Player for the iPad, as well as your ideas on how you would like to use Maplesoft technology on the iPad. Please share your thoughts with Maplesoft and the Maplesoft community at www.mapleprimes.com.

Good idea - now improve it and expand it
Maplesoft is a very good company and I wish they would expand out the ability to self tutor several key calculus and math related concepts.
The only thing that needs to be done is to simply add more items to practice, add more explanations on how to solve such items, and from there allow each user to store their best scores or their history of solving problems. So over a period of time when the student really does want to learn the material they can without being dependent upon others.
I use maple 13 now, with what they have planned for the future I am excited I bought an iPad and maple software. Who would have guessed they would leverage the two together to achieve more than the sum of its parts. Smart thinking!
Nice first attempt but very little usefulness
The app is great in what it currently does (display pre-made worksheets) but can currently do nothing else. I'd love to be able to transfer a worksheet over from my MacBook Air and display/manipulate it on the iPad.
