Maple
News Group. There are several electronic bulletin boards where
one may go to ask questions about Maple. Generally the fastest replies
can be obtained from the Maple Usenet news group comp.softsys.math.maple.
This link is to the Google Groups website,
but
faster turn around may be more likely if you use the USF news server or
the news server of your internet service provider. The Google site
has the advantage that you can search all previous postingsnot just in
comp.softsys.math.maple, but in all Usenet newsgroups. Another
usenet group which discusses topics related to symbolic computation in
general is sci.math.symbolic.
But questions and discussion solely about Maple should go to comp.softsys.math.maple.

Maple
Users Group. You may also send questions to the Maple Users
Group (aka, MUG). This is a moderated mailing list and the turn around
time is often quite long.

Maple Applications Center.
This is a repository for a very large collection of Maple worksheets on
many different subjects in science and mathematics. You will find worksheets
for single applications here as well as the worksheets for complete courses
in in various subjects using Maple.

A
Course on use of Maple to solve math problems. These are
the lectures for my course Symbolic Computation in Mathematics 
Spring 2002. This is a course for junior and senior math majors with
no previous programming experience. The idea of the course is to show students
how to solve a variety of different kinds of mathematics problems using
Maple. Students are expected to have completed courses in Calculus, Differential
Equations, Bridge to Abstract Mathematics and Linear Algebra. Sometimes
it is taken by students from other majors such as geology, physics and
computer science. These worksheets will be updated during the fall semester
of 2002 and will be placed on the website for this course on my
homepage as they are updated.
