RE: NumWorks open source calculator
Lua has at least one symbolic mathematics package. Lua should fit, it was designed to be small and it is also very fast. LuaJit is even faster and has an ARM backend but I don't know what its memory footprint is.

One issue with these scripting languages is garbage collection. They all have garbage collection but I'm not aware of any that have compacting garbage collection. In an always on device like a calculator, you will eventually run out of memory due to fragmentation.
