I am studiying linear algebra and during my studies have a need to do simple calculations on matrices, e.g.:

  • multiple couple of matrices
  • invert a matrix
  • etc

I am looking for something free and rather simple (although I have some experience with MathCAD) to assist me with calculations.

P.S. I am on Windows 10.


Wolfram Cloud has a free 'Programming Lab' with, among other things, vector and matrix math.

That's not 'on' your Windows system, of course.

  • I don't really care for where it is, maybe even better if off my PC) Thx for sharing! Sep 16 '16 at 16:02

GNU Octave is quite powerful, comparable to Matlab (in a sense). The learning curve is a bit steep, however if you are familiar with Matlab and/or MathCAD it might be easier to pick it up.
