Got this from my math teachers today, might be worth forwarding to appropriate people at your district.
FYI… Minnesota State Colleges and Universities have negotiated with Maplesoft, the creators of the mathematical software Maple, to arrange for free licenses of Maple 14 for state high schools. Maple is an important tool for teachers and students learning mathematics. It lets educators and students explore, visualize, and solve mathematical problems, providing greater understanding of the mathematics. Maple is used extensively throughout Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, so introducing Maple to your students will also give them a head start on the next phase of their education.
