Maple can be organized using Sections that can be expanded and contracted to allow viewing of smaller numbers of calculations. This webpage just briefly describes the commands used to organize a webpage, but you'll want to download the hyperlinked Maple Worksheet to view how the sectioning feature works. It is most valuable when you have a large number of complex calculations.

Basics

The Section command can be found under Insert on the menu bar. After entering Section the square box with a minus appears and text can be entered to describe your work. Suppose we first enter a function and graph it.

> f := x -> 4*exp(-x^2);

> plot(f(x), x = -5..5, color = green, title = `Normal Distribution`);

More on Sections

Now we can perform other calculations, which can readily be hidden by clicking on the box with the minus in it.

> diff(f(x),x);

> int(f(x),x);
