Abstract
This paper is devoted to some up-to-date computational tools, which are on-line available and appropriate to remote learning as well as to scientific research implementation relevant to mathematics and their applications.
The following aspects are concerned and discussed: some of the opportunities and benefits afforded by the software tools which are taken into consideration; necessary requirements which have to be met in order to use these tools; some disadvantages and drawbacks which may arise.
Comparison of fees and prices for different mathematical software tools is done.
For purpose of illustration realistic examples are also given.
