When I do use software in class, I will probably use Sage, which is based on the free industry-standard language Python. You can access Sage for free on the internet.

**Mathematica**: A comprehensive computer algebra system. I think we have a campus license, so you can use it for free while you are here. Student licenses are not valid after you graduate, so student versions are basically “rented” until you graduate. Depending on what you do when you leave, Mathematica may cost thousands of dollars after you graduate.**Maple**: A comprehensive computer algebra system.**Matlab**: Software that is typically used in engineering to do linear algebra. This software costs tens of thousands of dollars once you are not a student.

I've collected a number of links to online resources for this class and posted them to my Teaching Resources page. You should at least browse the general resources and linear algebra resources.
