If you plan on doing a lot of this, or more involved stuff I'd recommend Matlab / Octave over Polymath.

Polymath is great for teaching or quick calcs. but if you try to something very complex you'll hit its limitations.

100% right. I prefer Matlab or just MS Excel too. Eg. you cannot combinate Polymath with solver. Usually I use excel + VBA and it is enough for me at this time.

Having the ability to export the data-points of the curves to Excel would already be good, at least for layout purposes. Did you try exporting the datapoints to another spreadsheet program, or to Google Sheets for example? I'm thinking about buying the program and putting it on a windows machine we have here, but that one does not have Excel (yet, gonna ask the guy to install it though).

You can get three kinds of solution: report with initial and final values, table with all points and graph like those presented. The data from tables are easy to copy their everywhere you want.


EDIT:
I've put attachment below.

Hey guys (I assume you are of the male species, if not, my sincerest apologies),

I want to thank you both for this very fine interaction. I just purchased my 4 month valid version of polymath, and am looking forward to play with it (which will start tomorrow). I might come back in this corner for some advice, but for the moment, I am very satisfied with your input!!

Cheers
