## Abstract

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.
