I used the student version of Mathematica in high school and found that it
was too powerful for most students. Most of the things that I would need to
do as a high school student could be done better and simpler with a TI graphing
calculator (which many schools now require). As I got into my junior year of
college I still haven't run across a problem where the student version of
Mathematica couldn't handle in a reasonable period of time. I am a physics
engineering major so I am not a slouch in math either.
My question is what did I miss? What things did everyone else do in high
school that I didn't do? Or was everyone else using a better (less crippled)
program? I guess my question is what is it even used for in high schools
