WWW Interactive Mathematics Server (WIMS) at http://wims.unice.fr/ by XIAO Gang, is fantastic. There are many marvelous tools here, including a Matrix calculator (determinant, characteristic polynomials, eigenvalues), a Function calculator (provides derivatives, integrals, and graphs), Factoris (factors integers and polynomials), Contfrac (gives continued fractions), a Base converter (In ternary, Pi = 10.010211012222010211002 ... ), Ruler & Compass (allows geometric constructions), Sigma (computes finite and infinite sums), a Gallery of plots, and many math exercises.
