Do You Write For Publication?

Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word produce high quality typeset text and automate tasks needed for writing large and complex documents. Both products will generate tables of contents, indexes, lists of figures and bibliographies. LATEX, the industry standard for mathematics typesetting, is used by Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word to produce beautiful mathematical and scientific documents.

Do You Need A Computer Algebra System?

Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook have the MuPAD 5® computer algebra system embedded in them. Once an equation or expression is typed, you can evaluate, simplify, factor, or solve it simply by clicking on a menu item. You can also plot functions in 2 and 3 dimensions. The mathematical expressions you create are live. There is no need to learn any complex syntax. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook are ideal for long distance learning and classroom instruction, and for writing reports, research papers, and homework. If you teach undergraduates, Scientific Notebook is used in many computer labs around the world for teaching mathematics. Both Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook make it easy for you to send mathematical documents containing text, equations, and plots over the Internet.

Are You A Student?

If you are writing a dissertation, you will need either Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Word. If you are an undergraduate, Scientific Notebook will likely meet your needs. MacKichan Software offers students greatly reduced prices on all of our software products. That does not mean that the software is diminished in any way; each student version is identical to the professional version, except for the price. Quantity discounts are also available for student labs.
