Maple is a powerful software tool for mathematical computations and visualization. The goal of this manual is to introduce Maple to students who are taking first year calculus. As such, Maple is a tool to solve problems that are too difficult to solve by hand. In addition, students will improve their understanding of the concepts of calculus. The order of the material is organized by computational topic and should be suitable for most texts on Single Variable calculus.

Features and Benefits

  • This manual was originally written in the spring of 1995 with Maple V Release 3 and was independent of any particular textbook. Subsequent editions were modified to match various editions of the Calculus textbooks by James Stewart. The current edition is again independent of any particular textbook. In each edition, the files were originally written as Maple worksheets and then exported as LaTeX files in order to ensure that no errors (hopefully) were made in transcribing Maple output into the text.
  • The projects are generally ordered according to calculus topic required.
