I'm going to get a CAS for next semester, since I'll be taking Differential Equations as well as a Matrices course. The price for the student version of each is about the same, so which one do you think I should get? I've tried Mathematica, and it's not bad, but after checking out the demos on the Maplesoft web site, I was very impressed with Maple. I am a second-year math major, so I'll (hopefully) be using whichever software I buy for more than these two classes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
