Aights so this is the problem. I need to know everything there is to know about maple 9.5. Please enlighten me. If you need somewhere to start how do I graph a function.

Any help appreciated.

I believe you plot a function as such:

-define the function, say 2x squared-> f:=x->2*x^2;

-plot it on an interval-> plot(f(x),x=-10..10,y=-10..10);

That's the basic way to plot.

If you know MATLAB, another mathematical computer program.

This is assuming that MAPLE program is almost similiar to MATLAB.

You have to define datas for x-axis, let use time for seconds:

t=[0:0.01:10]

This means that the x-axis will be starting at 0 and going in an increment of 0.01 toward 10 at the end.

Then you define a function for example $f(x)=x^2+2x-1$

You type this: f=x.^2 + 2.*x - 1

(Notice the dot? It means that the x-axis will be multiplied element-by-element. This is very important to know).

To plot the graph:

plot(t,f)

That's it.

You can google for MAPLE homepage, and there should be plenty of tutorials on it.
