I recommend the Algebrator to students who need help with fractions, equations and algebra. The program is a great tool! Not only does it give you the answers but it also shows you how and why you come up with those answers. I've shown my students how to use the program during some of our lessons. A couple of them even bought the program to help them out with their algebra homework.
OK here is what I like: much friendlier interface, coverage of functions, trig. better graphing, wizards. However, still no word problems, pre-calc, calc. (Please tell me that you are working on it - who is going to do my homework when I am past College Algebra?!?
I am using this program to help both of my children's Algebra homework although they are of different ages. It is such a blessing to have it around.
