SUMMARY

This book is designed for use in school computer labs or with home computers, running the computer algebra system Maple, or its student version. It supports the interactive Maple worksheets that we have developed and which are available free of charge from various sites. For example consult the anonymous ftp site ftp.utirc.utoronto.ca (/pub/ednet/maths/maple), or the University of Toronto Instructional and Research Computing World Wide Web home page (hhtp://www.utirc.utoronto.ca/home.html), over the Internet. The topics proceed through the full mathematics syllabus for the two senior years, from basic algebra, functions and sequences, to calculus and its additional explanatory text, answers to exercises, cross-referencing, bibliography and index
