Have a look on this website http://www.scilab.org/ This is scilab, designed in France. It is a numerical tool (and seldom symbolic), so it means that was done for high computing capabilities. After installing, you will have a command line as in any console; there you can type the corresponding instruction (like MatLab, don't know if you have seen it). e.g. > 2+3 5 > sin(%pi/2) 1 In scilab, almost all is a matrix, or vector, so if you type > t=[3;2;1] it mean that t is a 3 rows, 1 column vector, but if you type > t=[3,2,1] with commas means t is a 1 row, 3 columns vector. You can apply math equations to matrices. So F=sin(t) returns a vector F with values corresponding to sin for each element. If you need to plot one against each other, just do >plot2d(t,F) if you have 3 vectors (all same length), just do >plot3d(t,F,G) Scilab is plenty of options, let us know if you need more help.
