Abstract: Maxima is a computer algebra system software which is Free Open Source Software (FOSS). In this paper, we solved statistics problems on correlation coefficient and Spearmn’s rank correlation using maxima where speed matters for numerical computation. With easy and simple commands it reduces the time taken for tedious calculations of lengthy problems and helps in obtaining quick solutions for similar statistical problems. Overall the maxima software is a friendly software which is easily accessible. In future, it will be definitely a stepping stone for students, teachers and for researchers in the field of statistics. We solved several examples to exploit the capability of maxima by its many commands for computations in statistics.

Key words: Correlation coefficient, Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient, Maxima, FOSS.
