(New toys for Spike, really).

This is a new release of the Sage Mathematics Software, version 5.0.
The best way of thinking about Sage is to imagine a huge, but still
well organized toolbox. Just as Firefox is an alternative to Internet
Explorer or LibreOffice is an alternative to Microsoft Office, Sage is
a comprehensive open source alternative to Magma, Maple, Mathematica,
and Matlab.

Interview with the developers here:


You can use it online here:
Just find the example nearest to what you want and change the code as you like.

Or open a free notebook account if you want to do some serious maths coding.

You can also install the software on your own pc.
This is a Linux software package, but you can run it under Windows if
you follow the instructions.
(Basically run it inside a Virtual machine in Windows).
