After my post on Maplesoft software (see yesterday's post), I'm hearing all kinds of things from various people.
1. The name of the product should be Maple soft-swear.
2. "Maple is the devil."
3. From one of Ariel's classmates after trying the Maple assignment, "It's looks like I'm going to get another zero on homework."
4. Even a professor, who has asked that his name not be used, told Ariel NOT to take the Calculus 3 lab because it's a big waste of time (it's all Maple).
