"A complete application for advanced mathematical calculations."
As you may or may not have already worked out just from the name Derive is a very powerful program to calculate advanced mathematics: variables, equations, functions, vectors, matrices, trigonomics, algebra etc.
Derive also has a scientific calculation capacity, and can present data graphically in two or three dimensions in various coordinated systems. It processes algebraic variables, expressions, equations, functions, vectors, matrices and Boolean expressions like a scientific calculator processes numbers. Problems in the fields of arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, linear algebra, and propositional calculus can be solved with the click of the mouse. You can even make plots of mathematical expressions in two and three dimensions using various coordinate systems.
The potential in Derive is enormous, and isn't difficult to manage when you remember everything it is capable of. This advanced mathematical program is very easy to download, install and then use, through its friendly and intuitive user interface. You don't need any technical experience at all to get the most out of it.
