Powerful mathematical calculation program that specializes in algebraic computation.
Unlike numeric computation applications like MATLAB
or Scilab that use approximate real values to perform the mathematical operations, the symbolic mathematics programs allow to perform the calculations using the numbers exact value
, because they make use of what's called symbolic computation. Some of the best known symbolic mathematics applications are Mathematica, Maple and Derive
. This last one, is one of the most used in university environments due to its ease of use. It is a powerful mathematics program developed to operate with symbolic notation
, even though it also allows numeric computation
is capable of solving, derivatives, integrals, limits, series, vector and matrix operations, polynomes, algebraic fraction,... What's more, it has various options for graphical representation of bidimensional and tridimensional functions
. The result of the operations performed with Derive
will be an exact value, expressed with a finite number of decimals, with the precision
that the user chose.
If you are looking for an intuitive
application to learn Mathematics, download Derive
Requirements and additional information:
It works on Windows Vista or earlier.
The trial period lasts for 30 days.
