If you have a computer of your own, you might want to buy the student version of Mathematica, called Mathematica for Students. Available for $139.95 on CD from Wolfram Research (http://store.wolfram.com/view/mathforstudents) or perhaps for a bit less at the computer department of Follett’s Campus Center Bookstore
Bookstore). The student version is the full product and is not crippled in any way, although you get only limited tech support from the publisher. However, since computers running Mathematica are available at UMASTR lab and elsewhere on campus, you are not required to buy this software or to have a computer of your own.
