Homework Help: Math software;

  1. Jan 2, 2007 #1
    I remember trying this site; i'd kind of like to express some frustration, but maybe on some other messageboard(just seems that they love to throw a curveball as if that is all mathematicians ever solve). Anyways, I remember somebody telling me to get some kind of software that converts everything into regular looking mathematical symbols instead of doing things like X^2; can somebody tell me what that software is again please?

    If you mean something like a CAS (Computer algebra system) (I am not 100% sure its even called a CAS :/) google Maple or Mathematica.

    I like Maple, personally. :wink:

    something that turns stuff like x^2 into how you would regularly write it and print it on these messageboards
