Calculus source code?

I am a lecturer at a Technicon (more or less the same thing as a community college in the States) in South Africa, busy with a "intelligent" calculus program that'll not only give students the right answer, but actually show them where they have gone wrong. That's the theory, anyway.

What i need is the C++ code for doing the calculus. Although I suppose I can  write this myself, I don't want to re-invent the wheel. I don't need very advanced stuff - just basic differentiation, integration and first order differential equations.

Can somebody point me to a website or maybe a person(s) that has done this before?

Regards,
Willem

GNU Calc does this, and much, much more:-

I've had a quick look at the website suggested by JYoungman, but I'm not quite sure that this is what I want. If I get no better options, I'll award the points to him.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
