Need math processing software

  1. Jan 25, 2008 #1
    I hope this isn't too far off the approved topics for this list: I'm seeking information about math processing software- something that allows math problems to be done on the computer. Something powerful to be used through and beyond college engineering courses. Sort of like Microsoft WORD, but for math. Any suggestions?

    Mathematica (and the freeware clone Maxima), MATLAB (and the freeware clone Octave), Maple, and MathCad are the most common.
