I've made a new package available on sourceware: mathomatic

Mathomatic is a highly portable, general purpose symbolic math program
that can solve, simplify, combine, differentiate, integrate, and
compare algebraic equations. It can do standard, complex number, and
polynomial arithmetic. It is designed to be as general as possible,
with few options. It is a console mode application that compiles and
installs easily.
It also prints the results in a cool, easily readable and colored 
console layout.

; iterative root approximation equation:
x_n = x_o*((((y/(x_o^n))-1)/n)+1)
repl x_n x_o with x

This is just the mathomatic console client from the mathomatic package. 
Not distributed are the samples for prime number generation:
   twin, sumsq, primes and around.
If you want these also, get the src packages and compile them by yourself.

maxima (on clisp) is also suitable and maybe better, but harder to 
install. And there exist dozens of other symbolic algebra packages.
