Running Maple Maple should be on your desktop, but if not, the usual place to find it is under All programs --> Maple 10 --> Maple 10 You should see the Maple 10 splash screen. Either Maple will start right up or you'll get a menu screen like the one below. In that case, choose Start with Blank Worksheet , which is the second option. Changing the defaults Maple will work best if we change three of the pre-set defaults before we start. I strongly suggest you do this on any machine when you first load Maple. On the Tablet PCs, if you do this once, then you won't have to worry about ever again. Go to Tools --> Options to bring up a menu. Under the Display tab: 1. Change Input display to Maple notation 2. Click on Enable rollover highlighting in plots Under the Interface tab: 3. Change Default format for new worksheets to Worksheet Click Apply globally to prepare the changes, and then launch a new worksheet by clicking the "piece of paper" icon in the upper left to make the changes take effect. You're now ready to go!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
