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!
