Updated "Hands on Start to Mathematica" screencast

Postby Kathy_Bautista » Thu Feb 03, 2011 10:17 pm

Many faculty ask their students to watch the "Hands on Start to Mathematica" screencast during the first week of class, to get them familiar with the basics of using Mathematica. For those of you who are using Mathematica 8, you'll be interested to know that an updated version of this screencast is now available:
http://www.wolfram.com/broadcast/screen ... dsonstart/

This tutorial screencast is a great resource for new users because it encourages viewers to follow along in Mathematica 8 as they learn the basics to create their first notebook, calculations, visualizations, and interactive examples. Each topic is broken out into its own section, and the new video player allows you to easily jump between each of the eight sections.

This multi-part screencast replaces the previous "Hands on Start to Mathematica--Part 1" and "Hands on Start to Mathematica--Part 2". If you or your students are still using Mathematica 7, you can access the previous screencasts through the following links:

Plans are in the works to make the "Hands on Start to Mathematica" screencast available in other languages besides English, and I'll keep you all posted on the progress. In the meanwhile, I'd be interested in your feedback on the new version, so please let us know what you think.
