Free Maplets — Try Before you Buy
If you do not own Maple, click Use MapleNET 12 at the topright corner of this page.
To start a Maplet, click on its name.
(The first Maplet may take a little longer to open because it needs to start Java.)
A thumbnail will appear as you hover over the Maplet title.

Please Rate the Maplets. We eventually want to have a 5 star rating and comments for each maplet by students and faculty. So we need to collect data. Thanks.
Finding Vertical Asymptotes
Find the vertical asymptotes of a rational function.
Bracketing Method of Solving Equations given Numeric Data
Use the Bracketing Method to solve a continuous equation given the numerical values of the function.
Computing Tangent Lines
Find the equation of the line tangent to the graph of a function. Try some numeric points and then some symbolic points.
Derivative Drill
Practice computing derivatives.
Derivatives of Inverse Functions
Learn how the graph of an inverse function is related to the graph of the function. Compute the derivatives of the function and its inverse function at corresponding points and then view the respective tangent lines.
Related Rates
When two variables are related by an equation their derivatives are also related.
Properties of the Graph of the Second Derivative of a Function
Learn to identify the properties of a function, its derivative, and its second derivative from the graph of the second derivative.
Max/Min: Rectangle in an Ellipse
Maximize the area of a rectangle inscribed in an ellipse or part of an ellipse.
Area as an AntiDerivative: Deriving the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
Derive the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus by computing the derivative of the area under the graph of a function.
Integration by Substitution
Practice computing integrals by the method of substitution.
Surface Area of a Surface of Revolution
Visualize a surface of revolution and compute the surface area.
Work: Spring
Compute the force and work required to stretch a spring.
Direction Fields
Identify the direction field of a differential equation.
Geometric Series
Practice computing the sum of a geometric series.
Identifying Quadratic Surfaces from a Graph
Practice identifying a quadratic surface from its graph. Optional: Get out your 3D stereo glasses.
Tangent Planes to Level Surfaces
Find the tangent plane to a surface defined as the level surface of a function.
