Deltagraph is not really good for scientific plotting and number
There is Igor, which has a steep learning curve, and there is pro Fit
[the Fit stays for curve fitting], which can also do lots of things but
is much easier to use than  Igor. 
Many people still use Kaleidagraph, but IMHO pro Fit is, although
perhaps less known, a lot better than Kaleidagraph.

pro Fit 5.0 is from cherwell scientific (e-mail: csp.usa at cherwell.com,
on the web at <http://www.cherwell.com/cherwell/>).
