Maple is a mathematics and computer algebra software package that we will use from time to time in this course. It can be downloaded from Dartmouth's Download page for both Mac OS X and Windows 2000 and XP Professional. Note that if you download Maple from Dartmouth, you must have KeyAccess installed on your computer, as well as a connection to the Dartmouth network, to run Maple.

The code for the Maple worksheets we use in class will be posted on this page throughout the term. Feel free to use Maple to do your homework, but make sure you show all the steps you use; otherwise, if you give an incorrect solution, you will get a 0.
