A small UK company has launched a set of free open source computation utilities for college students. The Bamboo Toolbox includes access to software developed by open source communities that runs in a Web browser hosted by Hughes Bennett Education. If a student wishes to save computations, he or she can subscribe to a "personal notebook" for a small monthly fee.

* R Project for statistical analysis and graphical modeling
* GNU Octave for numerical computations
* Maxima for manipulation of symbolic and algebraic expressions
* Objective-C
