    Mathematica is probably the most popular.

    Mupad and Octave
    Octave runs on the least restrictive license

    there are many ...the top 3 Matlab(linear systems) Maple(canada-applied math) and mathematic(symbolic math, US i'm assuming).

    I really like Maple, but I believe the softwares others have just mentioned will do the job for the use you're looking for.

    are these programs like mathematic and maple terribly complicated to use? i'm not such an expert.

    We have no idea what kind of background you have, either in mathematics or in the use of a computer, so we can't really say whether those programs will be difficult for you or not.

    they are standards for undergraduate first years.
