    Derive for Windows version 5

    This Texas Instruments software package is quite
    satisfactory and easier to use than Maple.

    Don't forget to download the 30-day trial!

    The new CalculationCenter [sic] looks quite good.

    It means "It's spelt wrong. I know that, but it's what it's supposed to be, so that's why I wrote it like that"

    MathCad.

    MathCad7 is excellent, and I assume that MathCad 2001 is better. It rivals Mathematica, which is considered the premier mathematical application.

    I like the MathCad7 user interface and its ability to display & print complex formulae. For most purposes, I do not believe there is much difference in features between Mathematica and MathCad. I have only read about Mathematica, so I cannot comment about its user interface and formatting abilities, but assume they are good. MathCad is very intuitive. You can learn to use it with hardly any help from the manual.

    Graphmatica looks as though it has more plotting capabilities and less math capabilities than MathCad and Mathematica.

    Note that MathCad and Mathematica are expensive: $600 to $1000 American if you cannot find a bargain. Mathematica has a student edition which sells for about $150 or maybe less. MathCad can be found at heavily discounted at computers shows.

    I have MathCad 2000 (or maybe 2001, not sure), it looks very complicated and it's very powerfull, i just need to learn how to use it. You can do almost anything with it, like draw graphs and everything.

    Historically, Mathematica has been number one. But the latest Maple and MathCad look good. It is really a question of which one you learn. They all do the job. I learned and taught Mathematica so that is my choice.
