This paper discusses the use of Maple V’s group and combinat packages in the study of  elementary abstract algebra or introductory group theory.  The main focus of the paper is to show how to introduce discovery learning into abstract algebra class and how  to use a laboratory approach to teach basic concepts of group theory with the help of elementary group theory commands found in MAPLE V’s  packages group and combinat.
