Mathcad

A symbolic mathematics environment.

Mathcad

Mathematical software for PCs and Macs from Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC), Needham, MA (www.ptc.com). Used extensively for engineering calculations, Mathcad allows complicated mathematical equations to be expressed, performed and displayed. The program works hand in hand with PTC's flagship Pro/ENGINEER product and was acquired from Mathcad's original developer, Mathsoft Engineering & Education, Inc. in 2006.

Sall recently showed us a set of calculations she developed to track the three-year value of buyers of MathCad, a $495 mathematics program used primarily by engineers and scientists- MathSoft generates a substantial amount of revenue from annual upgrades and follow-on products--in particular, $99-$249 industry-specific templates and electronic handbooks--so Sall wasn't surprised to find that many of her customers end up spending more on MathSoft add-ons than on MathCad itself.
