Sounds like you're trying to get a computer to do your homework for you. There are many computer programs and packages can be used to perform mathematical computations (Mathematica, MATLAB, MathCAD, octave, Maxima, SciPy), but you're much better off just learning to do your problems by hand.

I like Maple myself.
It has a built in tutor function that can guide you through your problems. You can also use it to show one step at the time or all steps.

Wolfram Alpha is great as well, but it doesn't differentiate what level of Mathematics you are at. So sometimes it might give you a method using advanced methods.

And just think -- not too long ago, the most sophisticated computing device commonly available was made out of bamboo and had two moving parts and no batteries. And later when calculators first came out, the ones who had them first were the drug dealers.
