    educational math software

    I'm doing calculus and linear algebra in university right now, and I was wondering if there was any math software that would be of use to me for learning? I was looking at Maple and it looks like it has some interesting features. What do you guys think?

    Maple is a brilliant bit of software. I used it extensively in my previous year at university, and will most definitely be doing so again when I go back at the end of September. It came in handy for almost all my modules, including Calculus and Algebra. It helps to completely go through the tutorials so you can make the most of it. Also Mathematica can be equally useful, although I predominantly use Maple.

    Maple has some built-in tutorials for concepts from precalculus, calculus etc. These are not lessons on how to use maple. The tutorials are nice step-by-step demos of selected concepts. For example, in calculus it has neat tutorials on volumes of 3D solids using Riemann sums.
