Video: Science Museum In London Exhibits Early Simulation Software
Maple, a software for mathematical calculations, will now be on display at the Science Museum in London, as Maplesoft announced. On December 8, 2016, the museum opened the exhibition “Mathematics: The Winton Gallery”. It shows how mathematicians and their tools and ideas have helped shape the modern world over the past 400 years. The exhibition shows an early version of Maple from 1997.
How mathematics shaped our lives
The Winton Gallery is a new permanent exhibition that puts mathematics at the center of existence and brings the topic to life with interesting stories, objects and developments. It contains over 100 exhibits from the fields of technology, computer science and mathematics. The exhibition explains how the use of mathematics has shaped and shaped people, technologies and ideas throughout history.

"The use of mathematics is the foundation of many aspects of our life and work, and we hope that this compilation of remarkable stories, people and objects will inspire visitors to see mathematics in a new light," says Dr. David Rooney, curator of the exhibition. "At its core, the math exhibition tells the rich cultural history of human endeavor that has helped change the world over the past 400 years."
Maple was developed in 1980 as a computer algebra system and was first used by students at the University of Waterloo in 1981 as part of a course. The software came onto the market in 1984 as Maple v3.3. Five years later, Maple 4.3 received PC Magazine's Editor's Choice Award, which led to its rapid spread in the market. (kj)
