Regardless which platform you are using, theres bound to be a calculator included in the stock OS. For simple calculation, these calculators work fine, but if you want to do more complex calculation, like solving an algebraic expression, it wont make the mark.

I'm running Ubuntu 14.10 & I'm totally new to Python.

I'm aware that Python can be used as a CLI type calculator in interactive mode, a bit like the bc command in Bash.

I have two questions:

1) how to set the number of decimal places for answers to calculations

2) what do I need to do to be able to use mathematical functions like sqrt, sin, arcos, log

Whenever I try to use any of these fu

Howdy everyone,

I'm currently in college and trying to cheap out on buying a standalone calculator, when I have this wonderful PC in front of me. I saw a few like, ExtCalc, or GNU Plot, but I'm having issues using ExtCalc on Windows under Cygwin, and GNU Plot seems to have a steep learning curve.

The GNOME Project has announced a few days ago the immediate availability for download and testing of the third development release towards GNOME Calculator 3.12, which introduces new features, fixes bugs and updates translations.

I'm using HandyCalc now, it's excellent and free.
But unfortunately, it do not support hyperbolic function (sinh, cosh, tanh, etc.), and it do not support complex operation (e^(i*π)+1=0, etc.), neither do matrix.
Arity is simply, powerful, but not as user-friendly as HandyCalc, it supports hyperbolic functions and complex operations, but lack many features that HandyCalc has.
