On this page you will find things related to Maple. Maple is a computer algebra system and as such is very useful for symbolic and numerical calculations. We will be using Maple during the course. Hence, you should install Maple on your computer.
Here are the basic instructions for installing Maple. The download links are below the instructions.Following are copies of the instruction files.
Instructions for Installing Maple v11 for Mac OS X at Dartmouth
Intel-based Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later
Power PC (G4,G5) Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
Requires 650 Mb of disk space
Recommended RAM 512 Mb
Extract the files from Maple11-for-Macintosh.zip archive
Open the Maple11-for-Macintosh folder and run the installer for the type of Macintosh where you are installing Maple 11.
From the Easy Install Panel, click Customize and select Maple 11 Network License. Enter rclserv1.dartmouth.edu for the name of the license server.
Instructions for Installing Maple v11 for Windows at Dartmouth
Windows XP or Vista
Recommended RAM memory 512 Mb
Requires 650 Mb of disk space
Extract the files from Matlab-for-Windows.zip archive
Open the Maple11-for-Windows folder and run the installer which is Windows\Disk1\InstData\VM\WinNetworkInstaller.exe
Select a full install and select a network license. Enter rclserv1.dartmouth.edu for the name of the license server.
Below are the download links. I want to emphasize that Maple MUST be installed as a NETWORK license.
Be sure to re-read the install instructions included in the downloaded file because the installation is not simply a "click through the NEXT buttons" operation. You should go to the Student Computing Help desk for assistance if you run into problems, or if you have an older Mac.
Here's the download link for Mac users.
Here's the download link for Windows users.
Once you have installed Maple you can download the following worksheet:
- worksheet of examples [On Windows, right click to save link as; in OS X, using the appropriate command key, hold the mouse down until the drop-down menu appears with the save link as option.]
It will show you how to use a few beginning features of Maple. Make sure you activate the initial lines of a cell in the worksheet, by putting the cursor at the end of the line and hitting return. We do not expect you to write programs in Maple, but to be able to use and modify those Maple worksheets that you are given.
Later, we will be adding to this page Maple worksheets that we will be using in class and that you can download onto your own machines. In particular, we will be sending secret messages to each other using Maple.
Here you will find class demos that use Maple.
