Eduml-wikis can now do "inline" Yacas symbolic algebra <yacas> Solve ( x + 7 == 2 , x ) </yacas> renders "5" <yacas> Solve ( x + y == z , x) </yacas> renders "z - y" and in order to combine that with python, I've added a yacas() function that takes yacas input and outputs yacas output. I love open source; Once I re-discovered Yacas, it took me all of 15 minutes to embed yacas into eduml-wiki Yacas = Yet another computer algebra system it is a symbolic algebra language that simplifies polynomials and fractions and trig expressions, it solves linear and quadratic systems, uses the Newton method to converge towards roots in other types of functions it can also do elementary logic proofs it can tell what type of numbers we are dealing with; complex, real, rational, integer, even, odd etc...
