Given your major, I think you'll find Unum very handy:
    http://home.tiscali.be/be052320/Unum.html

It allows one to work with familiar terms naturally:

 >>> 1 / ( (2*pi) * (1*Mega*OHM) * (.1*Micro*F) )
1.59154943092 [1/s]
 >>>
(note that Unum doesn't provide the metric prefixes in this example, but 
thats easy enough to code oneself)


They have tutorial which you may find useful.


HTH,
