Scilab is a free and open source software intended for numerical computations (although with one of the many available toolboxes designed for it, it becomes capable of symbolic computations). It is released under the CeCILL license and has many of the same functionalities as MATLAB.

It is available in the software centre [albeit as of 1 February 2013 the latest version offered in the software centre on 12.10 (5.3.3) is one version behind the latest available version (5.4.0)].
