Smart features in Maple help users do complex math problems.

Maple 16, technical computing software for mathematicians, engineers, and scientists, introduces new tools and techniques in its Clickable Math collection. This collection includes Drag-to-Solve, Smart Popups, interactive assistants, context-sensitive menus, and tutors that provide a point-and-click interface for solving, visualizing, and exploring mathematical problems. Drag-to-Solve lets users solve equations step-by-step by dragging individual terms. Smart Popups instantly show mathematical identities, plots, and factorizations for the highlighted expression, helping users choose the next operation to perform. Other improvements include: a smart plot view that automatically focuses on points of interest; faster performance on both core Maple operations and calculations using multiple cores and multithreading; and over 100 new Math Apps that provide insight into concepts from math, statistics, physics, and finance.
