What Is Maple?
Maple is a statistical software package for advanced mathematics. It includes facilities for interactive algebra, calculus, discrete mathematics, graphics, numerical computation and many other areas of mathematics. It provides a unique environment for rapid development of mathematical programs using its vast library of built-in functions and operations. More information about Maple is available on the Maplesoft web site.
What versions of Maple are available?
Version 15 and 16 of Maple for Windows, Macintosh, or Linux is available.

How much does Maple cost?

Who can use Maple?
While on campus, KU Faculty, staff, and students may install and use Maple on KU-owned computers.
When away from campus, our Maple licenses require that KU Anywhere be turned on while using Maple. This limits off-campus use of Maple to those that can use the KU Anywhere service (KU faculty, staff, GTAs, GRAs, emeritus faculty and staff).
Maple licenses that are purchased from a retailer do not require KU Anywhere.
Where can I install Maple?
KU Faculty, staff, and students may install the software on KU-owned computers.
Installation on a personal computer by faculty, staff, and student employees is allowed only when the software is used to support the academic administration, teaching and research functions of the university. Students who are not employees that wish to use Maple on a personal computer may purchase the software from many online retailers, including Maplesoft.
KU maintains a license for Maple that allows concurrent use by up to 100 faculty and staff at the Lawrence and Edwards campuses. If the software is installed on a computer, but is not running, it does not count towards the 100 allowed uses. This means that the software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers.
