This page guides you on how to set-up your computer to view our notebooks
and tutorials. There are different set-ups and configurations required
to view our Maple, Mathematica and MathView notebooks.
Maple 5 Release V
- In order to view Maple notebooks
and tutorials, you do not have to
have any kind of special reader on your computer. As long as you have a
web browser that can display graphics, you can read any Maple document
on the web. To find out more about Maple go to The Maple Web-site.
- In order to view Mathematica notebooks, you either have to have your
own copy of Mathematica 3.0 or you have to download a free copy of
MathReader 3.0 from the Mathematica Web-Site. You then have to configure
your browser to open up either Mathematica or MathReader (whichever you
have) whenever it encounters Mathematica notebooks on the web. Click
here to go to our Mathematica set-up page to
find out how to obtain MathReader
3.0 and how to configure your browser to view Mathematica notebooks. To
find our more about Mathematica 3.0 and MathReader 3.0 go to The Mathematica Web-Site.
- In order to view MathView notebooks, you need to have the
MathView Internet plug-in and then must configure your
browser to use that plug-in to view MathView notebooks every time you
want to view one on the web. This plug-in is available
free from the Waterloo Maple Web-Site. Click here to go to our MathView set-up page
to find out how to obtain the Internet plug-in for MathView and how
to configure your web browser to view MathView notebooks. To find
out more about MathView and the
MathView Internet plug-in, go to LiveMath Web-Site.
