  • Tutors and Assistants can be accessed from the respective menus on the Maple 13 graphical user interface. The Tutors marked with [PreC] are found under the PreCalculus submenu; those marked with [C-SV] and [C-MV] can be found under the Calculus - Single Variable and Calculus - Multiple Variable submenus, respectively.
  • Access to the Maplets is restricted to USC and TAMU students. Use your Balckboard username and password when prompted to access the Maplets.
  • The maplets are most easily run with the Maplet Viewer (available only for Windows). On other platforms, save the file, load the file into a Maple session (just as you would any other Maple worksheet), and execute the entire worksheet. This will start the maplet.
  • Portable Document Format (PDF) files are viewable with Adobe Reader Download Adobe Reader.
