As alternatives to MATLAB, you can use Octave or Julia, both free with similar syntax to MATLAB, however, neither include a Simulink alternative. There is an online free compiler for Octave that you can use if none of the other options work for you. There is a simple FREE Simulink Simulator online as well.
