Graph Layout Engine (GLEE)

GLEE
GLEE is a .NET tool for graph layout and viewing. It has been developed in Microsoft Research by Lev Nachmanson. GLEE is built on principles of the Sugiyama scheme; it produces so called layered, or hierarchical, layouts. This kind of a layout naturally applies to graphs with some flow of information. The graph could represent a control flow graph of a program, a state machine, a C++ class hierarchy, etc.

WZGrapher Function Grapher

WZGrapher
WZGrapher is an easy-to-use and small-footprinted Function Graphing and Calculation Program written in C language, with capabilities to plot both cartesian and polar functions. WZGrapher can also be used to graph numerical solution curves of integrals, to solve numerically and graph ordinary differential equations up to the fifth order, and to calculate value tables (also of ODEs) including the first derivative values.

Vedic Mathematics

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae. For example, "Vertically and Crosswise" is one of these Sutras. These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution.

Here are some tutorials on it and some more information.
