Looking For a Certain Type of Math Program (OSX)

  1. May 8, 2013 #1
    Hello. I'm looking for a certain type of Math software that I'm not sure exists. Something like Microsoft Word - but specific to Math. Something that will allow me to mess around with algebra and arithmetic kind of like a calculator in Notepad or Word form. Preferably free. Sorry for the poor articulation but I'm not acquainted with programming or coding language. Any suggestions?
