Or Mathematica?

Geogebra also comes with a faster updating maxima built in.

### Re: CAS suggestions

Mathematica 8 is not free (but I probably can find an illegal free version). Anyways, I am running Windows 8. Maxima is slightly confusing. Anyone know of a good tutorial? I like Maxima as I am currently doing a lot on Linear Algebra. I will try Sage. Is Geogebra only for geometry?

I also used Maxima. It is very nice!

### Re: CAS suggestions

Geogebra comes bundled with a weaker form of Maxima. What is the problem with Maxima?

Well, with Maxima it took me close to 4 hours to calculate 2+2; I consistently pressed enter and then, with aid from the "10 minute tutorial", realized to press Shift-Enter.
