I'd like to know where I could get good shareware/freeware programs for high school level math. Thanks in advance. Raz Lin

First, try http://www.shareware.com for a large collection of shareware and freeware. Also check out Yahoo ( http://www.yahoo.com ). They have a large number of listings in all sorts of topics, including software, education, and mathematics. Any of these categories will be a good place to start looking. You could also try some of the various search engines on the Web with words like "software and education" (or software and whatever topic you want) For math software check out the Internet Mathematics Library here at the Math Forum: http://mathforum.org/library/browse/static/resource_type/software.html If you are going to be using computers, you might also want to look into some good Internet sites that have educational material. If you are interested in this, some good places to start are Yahoo, which I mentioned above, and the Math Forum's Internet Mathematics Library at: http://mathforum.org/library/ Hope you find this useful. Good luck! -Doctor Patrick, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/

You can get information about downloading the demo version free from: http://www.maplesoft.com/ For information on learning to use Maple, Indiana University has proven very useful. They have two pages on Maple help: http://www.indiana.edu/~statmath/smdoc/Maple.html and http://www.indiana.edu/~statmath/smdoc/MapleUltrix/ The latter discusses a little about the UNIX Operating System. I think the first URL will be a little more helpful for learning to use Maple V. -Doctor Paul, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
