I have been using Algebrator and it has helped a great deal. I find it very helpful as a check against my problems. I solve them manually and then use it to check my work.
I bought "The Algebrator" for my daughter to help her with her 10th Grade Advanced Algebra class. Like most kids, she was getting impatient with the evolution of equations (quadratic in particular) and making mistakes in her arithmetic. I very much like the step-by-step display of your product. I think it got my daughter a better grade in the past semester.

I am actually pleased at the content driven focus of the algebra software. We can use this in our secondary methods course as well as math methods.
