Maple as a Mathematical Problem-Solving Tool
Use Maple to solve a wide range of mathematical problems. Enter, compute, and manipulate mathematical expressions by using the powerful Maple mathematical engine. During the problem-solving process, Maple can take the result of one calculation and use it as input for a second calculation. In this way, Maple can solve complicated mathematical problems.
In a Maple worksheet, you enter input at a prompt. The executable input you enter in a worksheet is either 2-D math or 1-D math (also called Maple Input).
Maple output is the result of an executed Maple input command.
The combination of Maple input with its corresponding Maple output is called an execution group. It is the fundamental computation and documentation element of the Maple worksheet.
