Maple is a package for calculating and displaying the results of complex mathematical processes.

Maple creates mathematical documents that allow you to show the stages involved in a process, enter and edit values and change the elements of calculations, and display results in numerical or graphical forms. Maple includes word processing functions allowing you to enter and format plain text, as well as a powerful equation editor that helps you to insert thousands of mathematical symbols to compile complex equations and expressions.

Maple documents are interactive, showing changes in results as you change the values of individual parameters in your equations and diagrams. An extensive system of context-sensitive menus allows you to select individual objects (equations, symbols, graphical plots, etc) and change their properties as appropriate. Graphical tools like buttons and sliders can be added to documents giving animated interaction to change values and other features. Maple can also output procedures and documents to a number of different programming languages and applications.

Maple is covered by the University’s Maple Site Licence, which allows installation on any University-owned PC at no further charge per copy.

Available to staff on the University payroll to install on their personal PC - at no charge. This can be downloaded from the Exeter IT - Home Software Hub

The licence does not allow Post-graduates or under-graduates to use Maple on a privately-owned PC.
