There are many packages out there but I definitely agree that Mathematica is NOT 
the answer.  

IBM has a DOS program (DO NOT GET THE NEW WINDOWS VERSION) called the Mathematics 
Exploration Toolkit, which would be wonderful for this project. However, although 
it has a table feature, it is not a statistical package.  

The best thing you might want to think about would be a spreadsheet that has 
graphing capabilities. There are many, and your school probably has one as a basic 
set of software. The Toolkit can be ordered from your IBM rep or EduQuest. Let me 
know if you need more help with either Toolkit or a spreadsheet.
