These are questions asked by Brent Williams

On linux and windows, when i push the "end" key, Maple moves the cursor to end of line.

On mac Maple moves the cursor to the end of the document.

Anyone know how to change this behavior? I can't find anywhere in Maple config where you map keymaps.


Can someone please explain the error I am making in the input syntax?

Somehow my input is causing maple to be unable to solve these equations.


*edit* i'm also getting the same result for something like:


I don't understand the empty brackets, is maple telling me there's no solution, or is something wrong with my syntax? I have to be doing something wrong here, but i just don't see it yet.


We're starting on indefinite integrals in my 1st year calculus class.


A quick example would be int(sin(x), x);=-cos(x)+C


Maple doesn't add the +C on the end of it's solution. Can someone explain or point me to a resource? I've tried searching but I can't find an answer. 

I'm a student using Maple 18.

I'm still having some navigation issues with the Maple text editor. I realize that being in "math" mode or "text" mode causes Maple to interpret an <enter> key press differently.

However when I paste in some text, I get unexpected behavior. 

My professor will assign a list of problems, and I will paste them into Maple so it looks similar to this

1.) solve math problem 1

2.) solve math problem 2



Then I go to problem one, put my cursor at the end of the line and push <enter> hoping to make some room between problem 1 and 2 for my work. When I do this, the cursor jumps to the end of the list I had just pasted into the document.

How can I insert new blank space between the listed problems? I've had the same experience pasting in from MS word or just plain notepad.

Right now the only solution I've found is to copy the listed problems into maple 1 at a time.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.



When I take the derivative of abs(x), I use the chain rule and get this

When I ask Maple to differentiate abs(x), I get this:

I read the help file on "signum", and I expected this to work, but it does not.



How can I represent signum in normal calculus syntax when working the derivative of functions involving abs(x)?
