GraphPad Prism combines scientific graphing, comprehensive curve fitting (nonlinear regression), understandable statistics, and data organization. While it won’t replace a heavy-duty statistics program, Prism lets you easily perform basic statistical tests commonly used by laboratory and clinical researchers. Prism offers t tests, nonparametric comparisons, one-, two- and three-way ANOVA, analysis of contingency tables, and survival analysis. Analysis choices are presented in clear language that avoids unnecessary statistical jargon.
Mathematica is a software package that is ideal for communicating scientific ideas, whether visualization of a concept in an introductory level course or creating a simulation of a new idea related to research. Mathematica is commonly used in mathematical sciences, physical sciences, business and finance, life sciences, engineering, and computer science.
