Textbooks
There is no recommended textbook in Maple (you can read, for example, "Introduction to Maple 8" by David Schwartz).
The course texts for Matlab is "Matlab Guide" by Higham and Higham, 2000 (available from the University Bookstore)
  and "Matlab: An Introduction with Applications" by Amos Gilat, 2nd Edition, Wiley & Sons, 2005.
