Frequently Asked Questions

These are some questions which you have asked me about. If you have a question which is not answered below then please ask me and I will add your question to the list below — if you want to know then probably others do too!


How do I run Maple?
Practical information on using Maple a QMUL and from outside is given here.
Will the tests and exams be lab-based?
No: you will be asked to produce Maple code to carry out various tasks but you will not have an opportunity to test whether your code works.
Can I use a different package in courseworks and assessments?
No, you must use Maple. However suggestions will be made during the module for comparing Maple with related packages (Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha, GAP, Sage, Sympy etc).
