Hello,

I recently purchased a used Macintosh G4 which came with
Mathematica. I am a college student, and one of the classes I'm
taking this symester is Prepatory Mathematics. Next symester I'll
be taking College Algebra.

What I'm wondering is: is Mathematica a suitable program for
these rather low-level courses, or is it much too advanced? I
*really* want to absorb Algebra, but I'm simply not sure if this
is the right tool for the stage I'm at. My professor recommended
the website http://www.interactmath.com/, but unfortunately it
appears to be Windows-only.

Also, how does the licensing work? Will I have to contact the
person I purchased the computer from, or will I have to
re-register? I know there is a student discount available, but I
don't know if I'd have to buy that or not.

Sorry for the neophyte questions, hopefully someone can help.

Thanks!
