Maplesoft has announced the publication of the second edition of The Mathematics Survival Kit - Maple Edition. This ebook is designed to give students the information they need to overcome difficulties encountered while working on homework or assignment problems. It gives students the opportunity to review exactly the concept or technique they are struggling with, learn what they need to know, work through an example, practice as much as they want using randomly generated and automatically graded questions on that exact topic, and then continue with their homework.

The ebook was written by award-winning teacher Jack Weiner and is based on the recent second edition of his printed book, The Mathematics Survival Kit, published by Thomson Nelson. Drawing from his 30 years of teaching experience, Weiner identified topics that both university and high school students find most problematic. The latest release of The Mathematics Survival Kit - Maple Edition contains 25 additional topics, bringing the total to 140. All of the new topics were created by Weiner in direct response to requests from readers of the first edition of the book, including students, teachers, and even parents. New materials range from basic operations such as factoring and fractions, to graph sketching, vectors, and integration.

The new version of The Mathematics Survival Kit - Maple Edition is available from the Maplesoft web store at Students may purchase a specially priced bundle containing Maple 14 Student Edition and the Mathematics Survival Kit - Maple Edition starting at $109 USD. As a stand-alone purchase, the Mathematics Survival Kit is available for $29 USD.
