There are many reasons to move to Mathcad from Excel as an engineering calculation environment. These include, to name a few:
- clarity of notation (readability)
- clarity of dependencies (verification)
- unit analysis (error checking)
- breadth of calculation tools (completeness)
- engineering-appropriate graphs, image analysis, matrix analysis, and data support

This brief video demonstrates how to capitalize on Mathcad’s whiteboard interface by combining multiple representations of a mathematical function to better understand the function.

You may think of using symbolics for problems involving undefined variables. While this is a very useful feature, it is also important to note that symbolics can be used to solve problems, which can be calculated numerically.... (Show more)(Show less)
