CAS suggestionsI am looking for a CAS available for free download. Currently installing Maxima, but are there any other good ones?

Re: CAS suggestionsActually, the OP is talking about free softwares 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: CAS suggestionsMathematica isn't free 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: CAS suggestionsGeogebra also comes with a faster updating maxima built in. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #9 20130404 02:12:29
Re: CAS suggestions
If you say so. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #10 20130404 02:42:50
Re: CAS suggestionsIs it? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: CAS suggestionsWell, you said it isn't, so, I agree with you.

Re: CAS suggestionsMathematica 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?

Re: CAS suggestionsI also used Maxima. It is very nice!

Re: CAS suggestionsGeogebra comes bundled with a weaker form of Maxima. What is the problem with Maxima? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #15 20130404 05:46:15
Re: CAS suggestionsThere is no problem with it. Why?

Re: CAS suggestionsAh, okay. Sorry.

Re: CAS suggestionsThose are all good suggestions. In the right hands anyone of them can get the job done. Download one and start getting your hands dirty.

Re: CAS suggestionsIs that your suggestion to me? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: CAS suggestionsOf course, and to everyone else in the thread. Learn one now! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: CAS suggestionsI already have my "alternative" to Mathematica.

Re: CAS suggestionsWell, 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 ShiftEnter.
