    • 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 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
