Attempting to Modify Maple WS, for MathApp Quesiton

  • Hello I am attempting to modify a Maple Worksheet, to work within MapleTA:  The worksheet is here:  resistorsWorksheet

    -first of all I want to remove the visibility of the combo boxes on the right so that a student can only interact with the boxes on the left.

    -second I would like a question that asks students the total resistance (in other words students use use the drop boxes on the left to control the colors and have to calculate the total resistance).

    -third I would like a question that asks students the minimal resistance using the tolerance.

    -fourth:  obviously I need to hide the text under the resistor, otherwise students will see the answer.

    -hoping the student responses will pass back to TA for grading.

    Thanks for any help, my Maple "start up code" knowledge is very limited.

  • Hi @mschneider, Although you posted this question quite some time ago it may still be useful to have a look into a possible solution? I have tried to modify the original startup code according to your wishes. The modified MathApp worksheet is called It is ready to be downloaded, inserted, and run as a MapleTA question with built-in grading on your MapleTA platform.  I have posted it to the Maple Cloud and you can access it via the link below. Also, for your convenience, I have annotated that same worksheet (in the file with comments, by which you can inspect directly the corresponding modifications of the startup code - as well as the modifications of the original worksheet itself. The commented file is accessible via the other link below. I hope it works and that it can be useful. Best, Steen.
