Maple Versions


You can access the power of the Maple computation engine through a variety of user interfaces: the Standard Worksheet, the Command-line version, the Classic Worksheet, custom-built Maplet applications, and the Maplesoft™ Graphing Calculator.


Maple 2015 provides users with two worksheet interfaces. Both have access to the full mathematical engine of Maple 2015 and take advantage of the new functionality in Maple 2015.


By default, worksheets open in the enhanced and more modern Standard Worksheet. The Classic Worksheet, available on certain platforms (see below), has the traditional Maple worksheet look and uses less memory.


If your system has less than the recommended amount of physical memory, it is suggested that you use the Classic Worksheet version of Maple 2015. For system requirements, refer to the Install.html file on your installation disc, or refer to the Maple web site and search on "Maple 2015 System Requirements".

Standard Worksheet


The Standard Worksheet contains the full-featured interface. To access the Standard Worksheet, click the Maple 2015 icon. For example, using Windows:


From the Start menu, select All Programs>Maple 2015>Maple 2015.

Classic Worksheet


The Classic Worksheet provides a basic worksheet environment for older computers with limited memory.


Note: The Classic Worksheet is available on 32-bit Windows and 32-bit Linux platforms. To access the Classic Worksheet, click the Classic Worksheet icon. For example, using Windows:


From the Start menu, select All Programs>Maple 2015>Classic Worksheet Maple 2015.

Command-line Version


The Command-line version does not include graphical user interfaces features, but this method is recommended when solving very large complex problems or using scripts for batch processing.


To access the Command-line version in Macintosh, use the maple command.  In Windows, use the cmaple command.  For more information on the Command-line version, including Command-line options, see maple. Alternatively, to access the Command-line version using Windows, click the Command-line version icon.


From the Start menu, select All Programs>Maple 2015>Command-line Maple 2015.

Maplet Applications


The Maplet User Interface Customization system allows you to create windows, dialogs, and other visual interfaces that interact with a user to provide the power of Maple. Users can perform calculations or plot functions without using the Standard Worksheet interface.  A Maplet application is a collection of elements including, but not limited to, windows and their associated layouts, dialogs, and actions. To create Maplet applications, you can use the Maplets package or the Maplet Builder.


For information and examples, see the Maplets and MapletViewer help pages.


To view examples of built-in Maplet applications, see the interactive tutors in the Student[Calculus1] package.

Maplesoft Graphing Calculator


The Maplesoft Graphing Calculator is a convenient calculator using Maple technology. It is available as part of your Maple installation (Windows® only).


From the Start menu, select All Programs>Maple 2015>Maple Calculator.
