Derive was a computer algebra system, developed as a successor to muMATH by the Soft Warehouse in Honolulu, Hawaii, now owned by Texas Instruments. Derive was implemented in muLISP (de), also by Soft Warehouse. The first release was in 1988. It was discontinued on June 29, 2007 in favor of the TI-Nspire CAS. The last and final version is Derive 6.1 for MS Windows.

Since Derive required comparably little memory, it was suitable for use on older and smaller machines. It was available for Windows and DOS platforms and was used also in TI pocket calculators.
