Welcome. MaxProfs is the community for instructors using the The Max Labs.

At a minimum, you'll want to subscribe to Alerts-Updates (click the "Follow" button on the lower right on that page), so you'll get notified whenever a problem arises & we post a fix/workaround.

Almost as important are the Latest Tips where we post new best practices as we discover them. Probably a good idea to "Follow" that one too.

Discussions is a place to interact with us and other instructors using the labs. There you'll find  a Help+Support forum where you can post questions and/or respond to others seeking help. There's also a Questions+Thoughts forum for exploring lab-related issues and a Suggestions+Ideas forum for brainstorming future possibilities. 

Resources is where you'll find everything we've put together to help, inluding websites, slide decks, videos, etc. There's a brief description for every asset, explaining what it is and how to use it, and they're all organized into four categories:

  1. About the Max Labs
  2. Getting Started
  3. Engaging Students
  4. Materials

Finally, the Comment Wall is a place to share your thoughts & reactions.

We hope you'll find MaxProfs useful in helping you and your students get the most out of the Max Labs. Just let us know if there's more we can do.

If you have students who haven't already started Lab 1b, please distribute this new version that avoids some postential snags by clarifying the steps around purchasing and around the import data download instructions. Thanks!

One more very minor update - just clarifying one instruction that was snagging a few students. Please have students use this one if they haven't already done Lab 1a. The previous one is ok. This one is slightly clearer. At the same link in the lab p…
