The purpose of this guide is to give a quick introduction on how to use Maple.  It primarily covers Maple 12, although most of the guide will work with earlier versions of Maple.  Also, throughout this guide, we will be suggesting tips and diagnosing common problems that users are likely to encounter.  This should make the learning process smoother.
This guide is designed as a self-study tutorial to learn Maple.  Our emphasis is on getting you quickly ?up to speed.?  This guide can also be used as a supplement (or reference) for students taking a mathematics (or science) course that requires use of Maple, such as Calculus, Multivariable Calculus, Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, Modeling, or Statistics.
