Leibniz 1.0, a graphical, point and click interface for Mathematica is now
available for download. This program is an easy-to-use text and equation
editor and alternative front end for the Mathematica kernel. Using Liebniz,
you can enter text and equations in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get
style, and then perform calculations on the expressions you have entered
by dragging symbols from one part of an expression to another or by simply
selecting an expression and hitting enter.

Leibniz takes advantage of Mathematica's extensive pattern matching capa-
bilities to make educated guesses as to what operations you would like to
perform. The result is a system which is extremely simple to use and very
powerful at the same time.

Leibniz was developed specifically for the needs of teachers and students
in lower-level college math courses. The software is ideal for use in
calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra courses. Because Leibniz
is so simple and easy to use, students can start using it in minutes to
perform sophisticated calculations. Leibniz can also be used as a stand-alone
text and equation editor: Leibniz documents can be exported in LaTeX form for
high-quality page layout.

Leibniz is shareware for Macintosh computers. You can download the fully
functional shareware version for regular or Power Macintosh computers
from the Leibniz web site:
