Description

This paper deals with the web interface Maple T.A. which is used for mathematical education at the Vienna University of Technology. Maple T.A. is based on the computer algebra system Maple. This fact offers the possibility to test and assess the students in easy but also complex mathematical matters in an uncomplicated way. This interface was first used only for the refresher course. This course takes place in the first 3 weeks of the semester and deals with the repetition of all the important themes of the school mathematics. Maple T.A. is also used for the basic and advanced mathematical courses in the first two years in the study of electrical engineering. For these courses the use of Maple T.A. includes the offer of assignments for every chapter of the lecture but also homework and tests are realized in it.
