Optimus is a process integration and design optimization software platform that quickly identifies optimal design parameters. With its combination of powerful optimization algorithms and an intuitive interface, Optimus makes it easy to find the best parameter values for your complex MapleSim and Maple design problems. You can even use Optimus to optimize a design that uses unconnected simulation tools to evaluate different product attributes, since Optimus can incorporate other simulation tools into a single optimization environment. With Optimus, even globally distributed teams can collaborate to create automated multi-disciplinary workflows and identify the most optimal and robust design variants while respecting a proper balance between conflicting design objectives.

Maplets for Calculus is an award-winning collection of over a hundred Maple applets (Maplets) for students and instructors, covering the most important topics in precalculus, single variable calculus, and multivariable calculus. As an Electronic Study Guide for students, these Maplets are highly pedagogical and balance the development of understanding and technical skills. Each Maplet poses a question and allows the student to work through intermediate steps to obtain an answer. The Maplet checks intermediate results, tells the student if their answer is correct or where it is incorrect, and provides hints along the way. There is an endless supply of random, algorithmically generated questions or users can enter their own problems. The highly visual Maplets enhance comprehension by making use of many 2-D and 3-D graphics and animations. These point-and-click applications require only a minimal knowledge of Maple. It’s like having a tutor without the tutor!
Instructors will appreciate using the Maplets as a source for quiz questions and as lecture demonstrations, especially for the graphics and the ability to enter their own problems. Further, in a lab setting, each student will be working on their own problems and the students will talk to each other about how to solve them. Maplets for Calculus has helped over a thousand students succeed.

Mathematics with Maple™ is a comprehensive, interactive and highly visual electronic textbook written in Maple. This e-book covers more than 100 topics from mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics at the university level. It includes more than 600 worked examples, over 140 new commands for learning and visualizing concepts from calculus, and summaries of the mathematical concepts and principles associated with each topic. The material allows you to focus on concepts and examples to get a better understanding of the mathematics rather than spending time on the details of the calculations. This unique material can be used as a supplement to a standard textbook or on its own.
This e-book gives teachers a useful resource as a computational supplement for courses in mathematics, applied mathematics, science, engineering, and statistics, and allows for easy and highly visual classroom demonstrations. For students, this e-book provides help, motivation, and insight into theory and applications. The computations and computational experience gained from this book can be used in classes, labs, homework, projects, and also in engineering and other professions.

The Atlas package is a powerful Maple toolbox which allows you to solve a variety of differential geometry problems using a simple computational scheme. The computational process is highly automated which allows you to save time by concentrating your efforts on the problem and not on the programming.
For low dimensional (2-D and 3-D) problems, the package contains atlasWizard–a Maplet tool which generates corresponding atlas package code and allows you to formulate and solve problems in seconds. This makes the package an ideal tool for the teaching and learning of corresponding differential geometry courses.
The Atlas package allows you to do some differential geometry calculations with symbolic dimension. The unique aspect of the package is its ability to work with manifolds and mappings. With the Atlas package you can define N-dimensional manifold as a set of charts and mappings (an atlas on the manifold) and then do calculations on defined charts. You are also able to transform tensor fields and p-forms from one chart into another, which allows you to work with a manifold geometry as a whole.

Geometry Expressions is the world's first interactive symbolic geometry system. This means that geometric figures can be defined by either symbolic constraints or numeric locations. Measurements on your drawing are not only presented numerically, but also expressed symbolically as mathematical expressions which can be exported to Maple for analysis. Where Maple automates the analysis of mathematical expressions, Geometry Expressions automates the creation of those expressions (in the geometry arena). Geometry Expressions is a stand-alone application which can be invoked and controlled from within a Maple™ worksheet, or which can communicate with Maple™ via copy and paste.
