UC San Diego Maple Agreement

Maple is software for symbolic math and numeric computation. You can use Maple at many levels, from exploratory learning in math education to research problems in quantum chemistry. The software consists of a small kernel and a library of some 2,000 mathematical functions. Maple is also used in one of the Matlab toolboxes.

The current price is $150 per year.

Each machine running the software must have a license and activate it with a key provided by ACMS/Software Distribution.

Each faculty/staff member that acquires a copy of Maple is entitled to use this product at home, on one computer at a time for use consistent with either personal use or use that complements their duties as a faculty/staff member of the University of California. In no way does this allow the licensee to distribute the software to any other person, company, or entity at any time without the written consent of MapleSoft. This home use is unique to the UC system and uses a unique serial number per activation. Contact us if you need one.

Students may not buy Maple for their personal use under this agreement. A student version including documentation is available from MapleSoft's online store for $99. They also offer a 12 month version for $79. Classes that wish to use Maple should request it at the ACMS course information web site.

Printed documentation is not included. Maple books can be ordered from the Bookstore.

We have disk image (.ISO) downloads for the current version of Maple as the normal distribution method. Note: This software can be installed by ACMS Desktop Support. There is no transaction fee if the software is installed on a normal (billed) support call. Contact ACMS Desktop Support at campus extension 20047 or email desktop@ucsd.edu

ACMS will act as the technical support coordinator on copies obtained from this program. Note that ACMS is unable to provide extensive technical support for this product. Direct calls to Maplesoft are not allowed. Privately obtained licenses do not have support restrictions.

In subsequent years, you must either keep Maple under maintenance through ACMS Software Distribution, or remove it from your system, under the current agreement. This is true for all existing Maple 6 and higher licenses bought through ACMS.
