The links on this page and the software itself have not been validated or verified to be free of risk. Unless otherwise noted, they have been added by anonymous editors. If any registered editor with a substantial contribution history is willing to validate and certify these programs, please sign the listing as "validated." Otherwise this page exists for research purposes. I suggest googling a name before loading it, to find reviews, unless you very much know what you are doing.

To-do: Validate these programs as safe. Eliminate dead links. To-do: Review these programs, comparing them. --Abd (discusscontribs) 13:32, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Free mathematics software (freeware)[edit | edit source]

The below are open source tools and mostly available on GNU/Linux, and can run on other platforms too:

  • Flox Calc free, powerful script based offline graphing program for windows. Includes special functions to model relativistic travel scenarios.
  • GeoGebra - open source software for dynamic geometry, algebra and calculus for middle/high school and college. Exports interactive web pages.
  • Kig[1] A GUI based geometry editor. Includes some analytical functions and conic sections. Exports to several formats including SVG.
  • Newt - free graphing program for windows
  • Maxima - open source symbolic maths program, like Mathematica and Maple
