**I would like to buy some MATH software but not sure which one! Please help ;)**

I dropped out of Grade 13 (aka OAC) in Ontario a few years ago--leaving school with a grade 12 diploma and no math credits. I am now doing the math credits (Algebra&Geometry and Calculus) via correspondence through an adult learning center which is run by the ontario education ministry.

I am doing them one at a time (right now Calculus is my focus). I'm finding it pretty enjoyable (I liked math but had external circumstances during senior year which caused me to leave). The material gives me the answers for the practice exercises which I have correct almost every time. On the questions I must submit for credit I do not get to see the answers of course.

I don't want to sound like a cheater (really! I am doing it all myself step by step self-taught ;) but I'd like to verify my answers somehow.

I have heard of various math software: Mathematica, Maple, Matlab etc. I have read up on Mathematica and it mentioned that "Calculus Wiz" (another product by the same company) is better for having the step-by-step results for calculus questions.

"Calculus Wiz" will obviously not cover my Algebra&Geometry course I am taking next.

So I come to you wise men to ask if there is any software that you can recommend for my Algebra&Geometry and Calculus courses? These are rated Ontario Grade 13 which might be somewhere between most grade 12 and first year university classes I'd expect with overlap of both probably.

I'm not even sure I'll need the same guidance with Algebra&Geometry...

Do you think Calculus Wiz would be sufficient for my calculus needs? Any feedback on it would be great.

Thanks a lot, I have no where else to turn for this guidance as I don't have a teacher :(
