A simulation package has been developed for the PLATO educational computer system which allows the user to apply numerical and graphical solution techniques to small-scale problems. Current state-of-the-art numerical algorithms are used with the interactive graphic capabilities of a PLATO terminal to provide efficient problem solution in less than a minute of terminal time. Convenient entry, execution, modification, and output options are combined with on-line input error detection and extensive error messages. Although primarily intended for educational purposes, industrial users will also find this package very efficient for solving small-scale problems.
