Have a look at:

Not really a free version of Maple, but I use Maxima. You can find it

There you can do things like (just a simple, stupid example):
(%i1) diff(3*x^2,x);
(%o1) 				      6 x
(%i2) integrate(6*x, x);
(%o2) 				     3 x

(the spacing is a bit unfortunate in my email now)

Best, Roland
