    good software for recording problems to turn in?

    I am taking a engineering physics, and I was wondering if there was a good software (free) that is used for turning in the homework.

    Do most people just use the word 2007 built in symbols or an aftermarket type? Usually we have to turn in about 7-10 problems an assignment.

    I just found out about the ability in word today but was not sure if there was something else everyone was using.

    Thanks,
    (Pencil at this point seems so much better but I have horrible hand writing poor teacher!)

    If you have Word installed then this would probably be easiest. If you wanted something a bit more advanced you could install Latex on your computer and create PDF files with your results on?

    Try never to use commercial software when there is a free alternative. The commercial company is trying to capture you now with a cheap/free version so that later you will insist on your employer paying inflated prices for the commercial version.

    Word - Open Office, LaTeX, ..
    Matlab - FreeMat, SciLab, Octave
    Mathematica - Maxima

    and then there is the good-old Excel full of ureliable ststistical functions that MS won't fix (or drags its feet for decades before fixing) and the reliable and free Gnumeric.
