Illinois State University maintains a campuswide license for Mathematica, computational software that can be used both for research and to enhance student learning.

A representative from Wolfram Research, the maker of this software, will be at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology to talk about Mathematica Online. Join your colleagues from 10–11:30 a.m. Monday, March 30, 2015, at CTLT’s facility at 301 South Main Street. No registration is necessary.

Current users of Mathematica will benefit by exploring the new improvements and features of this technology. However, knowledge of Mathematica is not required. Each participant will receive an electronic copy of the examples, which can be adapted to individual projects.

The event will showcase several features,  including how to:

  • enter calculations in everyday English, or using the flexible Wolfram Language
  • visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D
  • store and share documents locally or in the Wolfram Cloud
  • use the predictive interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options
  • access trillions of bits of on-demand data
  • use semantic import to enrich your data using Wolfram curated data
  • easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications
  • access 10,000 free course-ready applications
  • utilize the Wolfram Language’s wide scope of built-in functions, or create your own
  • use Mathematica Online on an iPad and other devices
