Maple (like Mathematica, Matlab and Mathcad) is a mathematics software package for symbolic and numerical manipulations and calculations.
I happen to be taking a course in Maple -- because it's required for a BA in mathematics where I attend school. Mathematica and Matlab are also freely available for students on campus. I've also purchased Maple with a student discount for use on my own PC, as the best way i know to learn something is to play with it.
Just wondering if anyone else here has used it or plans to do so.
