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.

The lecture notes will be posted on the web (this web) in form of .mws-files (Maple worksheet) for Maple session and .pdf-files for Matlab session.
