Overview of Basic Features

  

Maple worksheets are files that solve mathematical problems from the fields of mathematics, science, and engineering.  Calculations and accompanying documentation can be stored in the same worksheet. Worksheets are both interactive and reusable. They can be used to replace calculators, spreadsheet application programs, and programs in languages such as FORTRAN. Specifically, in worksheets you can:

• 

perform computations

• 

manipulate mathematical expressions

• 

describe the problem-solving process

  

When you use Maple to perform computations or manipulate expressions, Maple displays the corresponding results, which you can use for subsequent processing. The request you send Maple is called Maple input, and the result is called Maple output. Together, Maple input and output comprise an execution group, which is the fundamental element of the worksheet.
