ScicosLab; Scicos; Software
Perhaps the largest and most capable open source software for doing applied mathematics is the open source package Scicoslab. Widely used in Europe and Asia it is less well known in the United States. In this article we will explain how ScicosLab can be easily used to help teach differential equations and to also introduce students to a software package that they can take with them for the rest of their careers.
