--- Comment #5 from Stephen Montgomery-Smith <stephen at FreeBSD.org> ---
I do use the math/octave port (albeit on Windows or Linux) when I teach a class
"Numerical Linear Algebra."  And Matlab is widely used by Engineering schools
over the world, and octave is a drop in replacement for Matlab.  But do you
want it considered educational?  Would you consider Mathematica to be
educational?  If math/octave-froge-ltfat is considered educational, then you
could make a case that all the octave* ports are educational, as well as
maxima, wxmaxima, sage, and a bunch of other computer algebra systems.

For that matter, you could add python, gcc and clang ports as educational, as
Computer Science departments the world over use them in classes.
