Maple V Mathematics Learning Guide is the fully revised introductory documentation for Maple V Release 5. It shows how to use Maple V as a calculator with instant access to hundreds of high-level math routines and as a programming language for more demanding or specialized tasks. Topics include the basic data types and statements in the Maple V language. The book serves as a tutorial introduction and explains the difference between numeric computation and symbolic computation, illustrating how both are used in Maple V Release 5. Extensive how-to examples are presented throughout the text to show how common types of calculations can be easily expressed in Maple. Graphics examples are used to illustrate the way in which 2D and 3D graphics can aid in understanding the behaviour of problems.
