Cannot get Maxima to run in terminal in OS10.11.6

I downloaded Sage-math-7.4.app for MacOSX (running El Capitan on 2016 Mac Book). Double clicked SageMath-7.4.app. I selected Terminal Session>Math>maxima . A terminal window appears with the following text:

Condition of type: END-OF-FILE Unexpected end of file on #<sequence-input stream="" 000000010b9691e0="">. No restarts available.

As far as I can tell Maxima is not running. I'm not sure what is running at the ">" prompt. I haven't found anything on-line describing this problem. If I select Terminal Session>Math>gap it runs gap in the terminal, and if I select Terminal Session>sage it runs sage. Maxima behaves differently. I'd like to get it working.
