Mathematica has a homepage.

To aid you in learning to use Mathematica, Mark Herrmann created a notebook to numerically integrate the equations of motion for a charged particle in a uniform electric and magenetic field and plot the results.

Below is a sample of the output from the Mathematica notebook.
It depicts a particle moving in an electric and magnetic field.
If the particle started at (0,0,0) at t=0. Can you tell the directions of
the fields and the sign of the charge?

If you have any problems, please let me know:
