Thanks for the suggestions. I downloaded Maxima separately and can run it on its own, but it's as if it's not included in the sage package. None of maxima_console(), sage -maxima or just integrating x^2 work. I can't show you what happens since that exceeds the maximum comment length allowed here. Maybe I'll try downloading a different version of the sage package.

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:

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.
