More about MathPad

Since the program was added to our catalog in 2005, it has already achieved 9,463 downloads, and last week it achieved 2 downloads.

MathPad is a pretty light program that doesn't need as much storage space than most programs in the category Science & Education. It's very heavily used in Israel and Egypt.

Its current version is 2.6.5 and it has been updated on 4/17/2008. It's available for users with the operating system Mac OS (68k/PPC) and former versions, and you can download it in English.

MathPad is a general purpose graphing scientific calculator for the Macintosh. It uses a text window rather than simulating buttons on a hand held calculator. This live scratchpad interface allows you to see and edit your entire calculation. Formulas can be entered directly and different values can be plugged in for easy "what if" calculating.

In addition to being a handy little calculator, MathPad can also take on larger problems. Simple plotting allows quick visualization of results. General purpose arrays allow calculations involving vectors, complex numbers, matrix algebra etc. 2D arrays can be displayed as grayscale or color images. Several examples are included showing such things as equation solving, curve fitting, vector calculations and numerical solution of differential equations.

MathPad does not have all the features of high-end commercial math programs but it can handle fairly sophisticated numerical problems with a much smaller memory requirement.
