    It depends on what I'm doing. I like matlab cause it's so feature rich. If I need to do something simpler I use excel.

    For linear algebra stuff I use Matlab at school and Octave at home.

    For crunching numbers, etc., I will use either Windows PowerToys Calculator or my classic TI-85.

    Seconded. And don't underestimate gnuplot -- it can do what you want, it's just not completely straightforward. To find intersections between two curves, subtract one from the other and solve for the zero point.

    As far as straight graphing, it works fine.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
