Geogebra is a free and multi-platform dynamic mathematics software

    Geogebra is a free and multi-platform dynamic mathematics software for learning and teaching. Looks pretty good to me if you can't afford an advanced software program like Mathematica or Matlab.

    I like Geogebra: cross platform, great fun for showing stuff to kids. Even does some very basic calc. Decent for quickly slapping together diagrams for other documents.

    However, if you want an alternative to Mathematica, look at Maxima instead.

    Matlab has a few FOSS clones:

    Three very different problems need three very different types of program...
