You see the iPad in iTunes. If iTunes did not launch when you connected the iPad to the Mac, start iTunes on your own. You should then see the iPad under the devices heading in the left sidebar under the Devices heading.
If you are running iTunes 11 - go to View >Show Sidebar from the menu at the top of the screen so that the sidebar is visible.
