Mathematical and Statistical Software


Maple is an essential tool for researchers, teachers, and students in any technical discipline. It lets you explore, visualize, and solve even the most complex mathematical problems, reducing errors and providing greater insight into your problem. Maple is available for campus use by joint funding from the Math Department and the Office of Information Technology.

Visit the Maple website for more information about the features of Maple.
