  • SMath Studio

    SMath Studio - is a math program with 'paper'-like interface and numerous computing features. It has an ability to work with systems, matrices, vectors, complex...

    • I have tried it. Like others said, it looks the same as Mathcad15 (best interface in my opinion, I dislike prime). Also, I like that when you put an unit you have to put ' first, so you don't have issues with naming variables that could be the same as the units. niksfish213 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • SMath Studio is the best approximation to Mathcad in interface feel and features. The main shortcomings of SMath Studio relate to plots and some plug-ins, but it's only a matter of time before they catch up with Mathcad. Guest • Mar 2018 • 6 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Free to commercial use. Interface is almost like Mathcad15. Guest • Feb 2017 • 10 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Mathematica

    Mathematica is a computational software program used widely in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields and other areas of technical computing.

    • Mathcad works with units with an engineer's point of view, mathematica works with an academic/theoretical point of view for mathematicians. Guest • Jan 2018 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • As another comment notes, they're not even close to the same thing. Guest • Sep 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • They are both math related, but otherwise have little in common. Mathcad is lower powered on the calculations side, but has natural-language style interface. SciPy is a high powered math programming language that doesn't even try to present a natural interface. Guest • Apr 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
