# Understanding Maple

Understanding Maple is a book intended for anyone who wishes to use Maple to do more than just sum a single series or evaluate a single integral. It is suitable for beginners, but does not shy away from advanced topics. It explains the rules which control how Maple processes input, and shows how to avoid all the most common pitfalls. Chapters include:

- Algebra and Calculus
- Solving Equations
- Linear Algebra
- Graphics
- Programming
- Procedures

- Download the table of contents and introduction.
- Buy a copy direct from Cambridge University Press.
- Download the Maple worksheets which accompany the book.
