Math Software’s Arch Enemy: The Number 2 Pencil

“When Maplesoft President Jim Cooper reviewed the results of a recent survey his company conducted to find out what calculation tools engineers use, he was floored. “We found out that our biggest competition isn’t a rival software company, it’s the old classic: pencil and paper. To a great extent engineers today are doing math calculations the same way I did them 20 years ago—looking up constants in printed reference materials and doing hand calculations. We didn’t expect that,” the former aerospace engineer says.”
