Is there an application similar to Maple in Portage? I need a similar product for an upcoming Calculus class.

xmaxima
texmacs is a better gui (and general scientific text processor)
(axiom is a 2nd choice but hard to compile and more instable)

There is others, less powerfull, like yacas (i never get used to it ...), kalamares, euler or mathomatic.

Im sure your aware that maple runs on linux? :)
Matlab and Mathematica do as well. Also, If you dont know about the integrator, you might find it useful: http://integrals.wolfram.com/index.jsp

yes they run, as long as you pay for them :lol:
(matlad, i think, could be get for free...)

I run a window version of mathematica with wine for a while. Is boring pay for the same twice!
If brianahr had a maple for win maybe he can try to offer a little wine to maple (better drink it seating confortable) :)

I knew there was a Linux version of Maple, but was unable to locate it.

I'm not sure if "boring" would be the word I would use for that, but whatever :).

I know the following holds for mathematica 4.1, but perhaps not 5.x. You don't need to pay for it twice. You can switch your windows license to be a linux license with-out paying a cent. In fact, the linux version was on the CD I got with my windows license.

oh well, the one i used was a version 3 for win98, teatchers edition or something like that. It was buyed by a friend of mine and it won't worked in anything except win98.
She moved to W2k a few moth after she buy it and i think she try to get a licence or a replace for new window... and wolfram seems to refuse the deal... i don't know the details. My friend was was using too Mathcad, that serve her work better (mathematica was a little too much for her needs) so she offers me the thing. I could make it work nice under Linux setting wine to win98 version...
