I've been a professor of mathematics at The University of North Carolina - Asheville since 1997. I've been using Mathematica since I started graduate school in mathematics at Ohio State in 1989. At that time, we used version 1.1 (as I recall) to teach calculus in our Calculus and Mathematica classes. I've used it pretty much continuously in my teaching and research since then.

In addition to my posts on SE, you can find some of my papers, teaching notebooks and other Mathematica based oddities strewn throughout my website.

In recent years, I've also worked as a part-time consultant to Wolfram Research focusing on development of mathematical content for WolframAlpha.

comment Cissoid of Diocles not smooth plotted by ContourPlot
@cormullion Is grid not an $n$-dimensional concept for arbitrary, positive, integer $n$? As in GridGraph[{5}] or Grid[{{1,2,3,4,5}}].

comment Cissoid of Diocles not smooth plotted by ContourPlot
Try an odd number of PlotPoints. You might also try MaxRecursion->6 or so. Also, I wouldn't generally expect ContourPlot, which samples points on a 2D grid, to perform as well as Plot, which samples points on a 1D grid.
