Need help with geometry, algebra or any other number calculations? Sage is a helpful tool you can download for free and serves as a great open source alternative to commercial mathematics softwares like Mathlab and Mathematica.

It can help you with any or almost all of your calculating needs. This helpful program was initially released in 2005 under a GNU Public License. It can help you with pretty much anything you might need when numbers are involved. From “algebra, calculus, elementary to very advanced number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, commutative algebra, group theory, combinatorics, graph theory, exact linear algebra and so much more,” the program is your one-stop-shop for all of your computation needs.

One of the key features that Sage offers is that it makes use of a Python script instead of an uncommon language. This makes it easy to modify and use by people who are already familiar with the language. If in case you are not familiar with Python, you can still use the program. Simply follow the tutorial that it provides when starting out with the software.

Sage actually works in connection with your browser, functioning along with your Windows, Linux or Mac OS. The notebook that comes with the program can also create graphs, mathematical formulas and so many more. With this feature, users can easily visualize the calculations they are doing. It also has an easy interface that’s perfect for newbies to use.

If you need more help, you can easily email their help support or download tons of manuals for more information.  Sage is definitely a great program to have if you deal with numbers on a regular basis.
