This short course was developed in the spring of 1994 and tested with a group of students of the University of Aizu, Japan. The students communicated with the teacher primarily by e-mail; hence this material can be considered as a distance learning course designed for a local area network. It consists of 10 Maple worksheets and 10 worksheets with solutions to exercises.

The contents of the course:

- Lesson 1: First acquaintance with Maple
- Lesson 2: Number Sequences and Limits
- Lesson 3. Solving Equations
- Lesson 4: Derivative and Taylor series
- Lesson 5: Integral
- Lesson 6: Elementary Geometry
- Lesson 7: Matrices and Determinants
- Lesson 8: Linear Operators
- Lesson 9: Conics and Quadrics
- Lesson 10: Groups

I thank A.V.Belyaev for his classroom help in teaching this course and preparing some solutions for lessons 2--5.
