In this paper, a well-known computer algebra system (CAS) was considered for the derivation of Numerical method for the solution of initial value problems. This was achieved by the use of maple software. Numerical methods were derived through Lagrange interpolation method. Both the implicit and explicit method was derived with the help of the Computer algebra system. In particular, a review of Maple’s functional role in the derivation of numerical methods was also presented. The main challenge was that the efficient handling and simplifying of very long expressions, which was met by the power of Maple’s build-in functionality. The use of the maple procedure had significantly reduced the errors and hence improved efficiency in derivation of higher order Adams Methods.
