General Hints and Clues About MAPLE

If you want to read text and some graphics from the web and build your own maple worksheet (probably the best way to learn), start here. Easy1 Easy2 Easy3 Fancy1 Fancy2 Fancy3
If you want to open an existing worksheet in Maple and modify it as you go along, start here. Easy1.mws Easy2.mws Easy3.mws Fancy1.mws Fancy2.mws Fancy3.mws

When you click on one of the worksheets just above, it will come up in Netscape looking like gibberish. Nonetheless, Maple will be able to open and execute this file, after you have saved it to a working directory. To do this, you go to File, and SaveAs, and put it in your working directory. When you launch Maple, it will be able to open and execute this file.
