=========== College of Science and Mathematics ======
I am pleased to announce the following list of Webinars taking place throughout January.

Please note: if you are unable to access the links provided, you can also register for any of our webinars online at: . All webinars are best viewed on Internet Explorer.

1. *_Hollywood Math_*

Thursday, January 8, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.

Over its storied and intriguing history, Hollywood has entertained us with many mathematical moments in film. John Nash in “A Beautiful Mind,” the brilliant janitor in “Good Will Hunting,” the number theory genius in “Pi,” and even Abbott and Costello are just a few of the Hollywood “mathematicians” that come to mind.

During this webinar we will present a number of examples of mathematics in film, including those done capably, as well as questionable and downright “creative” treatments. See relevant, exciting examples that you can use to engage your students, or attend this webinar simply for its entertainment value. Have you ever wondered if the bus could really have jumped the gap in “Speed?” We’ve got the answer! Anyone with an interest in mathematics, especially high school and early college math educators, will be both entertained and informed by attending this webinar.

2. *_Introduction to Maple 12 for Academics_**__*

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.

In this one-hour demonstration and Q&A forum, you will learn how Maple 12 is redefining math education and opening new horizons in technical research. By taking advantage of such features as interactive tutors, context-sensitive menus, expanded mathematical capabilities, and the new Exploration Assistant, see how teachers can bring complex problems to life, students can focus on concepts rather than the mechanics of solutions, and researchers can develop more sophisticated algorithms or models.

3. *_Introduction to Maple 12 for Professionals_*

*_ _*

Wednesday, January 14, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.

In this one-hour demonstration and Q&A forum, you will learn how Maple 12 combines the world’s most powerful mathematical computation engine with an intuitive user interface, a smart document environment that automatically captures all of your technical knowledge in an electronic form, and the ability to integrate with the rest of your tool chain.

4. *_Maple 12 and MapleSim for Controls Engineering Education_**//*

Thursday, January 15, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.

This webinar will, by the use of introductory and more complex examples, demonstrate how Maplesoft’s products can be used when teaching and learning controls engineering concepts. The concepts will be demonstrated using MapleSim, a new high-performance multi- domain modeling and simulation tool, as well as with Maple 12 and its new Dynamic Systems package, which offers a large selection of analytic and graphing tools for linear time-invariant systems, essential in control systems development.

6. *_MapleSim For Engineering Education: Innovations in Analysis,
Design and Simulation_**//*

Tuesday, January 20, 2009 2:00pm EST. Register here < >.

MapleSim is a modeling and simulation software that derives numerically efficient models of complex systems using an intuitive block-diagram approach to defining system models. MapleSim offers significant reduction in model development time and runtime performance from traditional systems. Distinct from traditional math and simulation software, MapleSim offers automatic derivation of model equations for more effective and engaging virtual simulations and exercises, dramatically more efficient models for real time simulations in research, and direct application to the emerging modeling problems in industry.

7. *_Clickable Calculus: Pre-Calculus, and Calculus of One and
Several Variables_*

*_ _*

Wednesday, January 21, 2009 2:00pm EST. Register here. < >

Join Dr. Robert Lopez as he explores Maple 12’s remarkable set of user-interface features that makes common mathematical operations as easy as pointing and clicking. In this session, Dr. Lopez will solve a spectrum of standard (and not-so-standard) problems drawn from Pre- Calculus, and Calculus of one and several variables.

8. *_Introduction to MapleSim: The Next Generation in Engineering
Modeling and Simulation_*

Thursday, January 22, 2009 2:00pm EST. Register here. < >

MapleSim builds on Maple’s extensive numeric and symbolic computational abilities to perform high speed simulations of very complex models. MapleSim offers a number of advantages over traditional systems: it has the ability to mix physical components and traditional blocks; model diagrams map directly to the physical system; it offers natural multi-domain modeling; advanced units management; live design documentation; automatic generation of system equations; and model simplification using symbolic techniques.

9. *_Optimization and Analysis Using Maple_*

Tuesday, January 27, 2009 2:00pm EST. Register here < >.

Many scientific and engineering applications have to obey tight performance tolerances. Initial designs are often sub-optimal, and to arrive at better operating conditions, manual iterative processes using, for example, calculators or spreadsheets are applied. This can take many hours, or even days. Often the solution obtained through such processes is still far from adequate. Over the last few decades, software tools boasting advanced nonlinear systems modeling and optimization algorithms have become significantly simpler to use, and no longer require specialized knowledge; this has accelerated the productivity of technical professionals across all domains. With Maple, you can take the result of over twenty-five years of continual investment in basic research and design to better model and optimize scientific and engineering designs in less time. This webinar will demonstrate, through several applications, how Maple provides an easy-to-use environment for advanced modeling and optimization. **

10. *_A Fresh Look At Symbolic and Numeric Computation_*

Wednesday, January 28, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.

What is the modern definition of symbolic computing? What are the critical differences between symbolic and numeric computation? How can respective advantages be exploited to solve more complex problems? What is the future of symbolic and numeric computations? This Webinar explores these and other issues that comprise the very heart of mathematical computing technology. Although Maplesoft is renowned for its symbolic capabilities, it has made major contributions to the evolution of numeric computations as well. The presenter, Dr. Tom Lee, is Maplesoft’s Chief Evangelist. He has been with Maplesoft since 1989.

11. *_Control System Design With Maple & MapleSim_**__*

*_ _*

Thursday, January 29, 2009 2:00 pm EST. Register here < >.*__*

In MapleSim, Maplesoft’s new high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool, systems are described in a compact and intuitive component diagram, making them easier to build and understand. You can mix physical components from multiple domains with traditional, signal-flow blocks, allowing you to build both plant models and controller prototypes in one environment. With the cutting-edge physical modeling techniques in MapleSim, you simply re- create the system diagram on the screen and the equations of the model are automatically generated.

MapleSim gives direct access to the complete Maple 12 system, including its intuitive user interface, technical documentation tools, extensive library of algorithms, and its new Dynamic Systems package, a collection of analytic and graphing tools for linear time- invariant systems, essential in control systems development.

From simple and intuitive model entry to insightful and complex analysis, this webinar will illustrate how these tools allow you to assess the stability, controllability and sensitivity of your control system designs.

We look forward to your participation!

Kind regards,
