When one decides to use a CAS package like Maple to teach mathematics
attention needs to be paid to the method used to incorporate it into classroom practice.
The best method will vary depending on factors unique to each institution.
In particular, one has to decide how much one intends to explicitly teach Maple to the students.
This paper outlines a method found effective by the author in a variety of courses
that has the students using Maple to learn mathematics while only requiring
them to learn a minimal amount of Maple.
This method should easily be adaptable to many other institutions.
