Maple is very powerful. Here's some things Maple can do:

**1. Maple can plot simple functions.**

For example,

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

>plot(f,x=-3..3);

**2. Maple can plot 3D functions**.

For example,

>g:=x*y*exp(-x^2-y^2);

>plot3d(g,x=-3..3,y=-3..3);

**3. Maple can solve transcendental equations.**

The best mathematicians in the world can't solve this bad boy, but
Maple can:

>h:=x*sin(x)-(x-2)^2=0;

>fsolve(h,x);

**4. Maple knows special functions.**

You may not know what a Bessel function is, but Maple does.

**5. Maple can do complex numbers and complex functions.**

O.

**6. Maple can do matrix manipulations**

M.

**7. Maple can differentiate and integrate.**

>k1:=x*exp(-x^2);

>int_k1:=int(k1,x=0..2);

>diff_k1:=diff(k1,x);

**8. Maple can solve differential equations.**

**9. Maple can do programming.**

If

**10. Maple can do a heck of a lot more.**
