Maple Flow Academic - Math Software for Engineering Calculations

Math Software for Engineering Calculations

Engage your students in their engineering analyses with Maple Flow.

Maple Flow is a mathematics tool that makes it easy for engineers to brainstorm, develop, and document their design calculations

Let Your Calculations Flow!

Work on and document your calculations in a freeform interface that feels like you’re using paper.

Math and Documentation

With Maple Flow, engineering educators can:

  • Do calculations, write documentation and easily refine your work in an environment that does not feel like a programming tool or a spreadsheet.
  • Encourage and reinforce engineering thought processes in an environment that makes it easy for you and your students to refine your ideas as you develop a solution. 
  • Explore what-if scenarios on the fly, work through examples without risk of calculation errors, and tackle more realistic, engaging problems whose calculations would be too time-consuming to do by hand.  
  • Develop live, fully documented class notes and electronic handouts. 
  • Emphasize the importance of units, with a fully featured units system and built-in units tracking. 
  • Provide students with a simple, freeform scratchpad for doing everything from double-checking a manual calculation to developing fully documented solutions to complex problems. 
  • Take advantage of a comprehensive set of built-in application examples, for learning and as a starting point for new content. 
  • Encourage brainstorming and make calculations fun!

Easy to Learn, Easy to Use
Work in a "paper" feel environment

Maple Flow is the most advanced sheet of “paper” you’ll need to work on calculations. With a low learning curve, you can easily create new documents, debug your work, and lean on a comprehensive set of built-in application examples.

Easy to Learn, Easy to Use
Share Your Work Easily

What you see in Maple Flow is what you’ll get when you print or share your work as PDF, and you can specify the page size and provide custom headers and footers.
