Part of the Springer Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics and Technology book series (SUMAT)


This chapter includes the basics of the use of Maple, illustrated by fairly simple examples mostly involving integers. For this chapter you need to know what a sequence is, an infinite sum, summation notation, what a function is, and what a polynomial is. By the end of the chapter you should be comfortable using Maple for moderately complex tasks, and should be ready to learn the new commands required for doing specific mathematics such as calculus or linear algebra.
