Document Mode vs. Worksheet Mode
You can use a Maple document or worksheet to solve mathematical problems. You can insert images, sketches, plots, tables, and other objects into both documents and worksheets. However, Maple documents and worksheets differ:
Quick problem-solving and free-form, rich content composition
No prompt (>) displayed
Math is entered and displayed in 2-D math
Solve math problems with right-click menu on input and output
Traditional Maple problem-solving environment
Enter problems at a prompt (>)
Math entered and displayed in 2-D or 1-D math
Solve math problems with right-click menu on output
Document mode lets you create rich content, and enter text and expressions on the same line. For example, the following solves for x without any commands: x−2α=1→solve for xx=2+α
This command was performed by using the context-sensitive operations in the context panel on the input.
The corresponding code to perform the same calculation in Worksheet mode is in 2-D math:
or in 1-D math:
Toggle Math/Text entry mode
Press F5 or choose from
Toggle 2-D/1-D Math entry mode
Press F5 to switch between 2-D black font or 1-D red font
Evaluate math expression and display result inline
Alt + Enter
Evaluate math expression and display result on new line
Continue on next line without executing
Shift + Enter
