In conjunction with the International Mathematica User
Conference 2009, unique training opportunities are available to attendees at a substantial discount.
Wolfram Education Group is offering several of
its most popular and newly updated courses. Classes are scheduled as
pre-conference training events on Wednesday, during-conference activities on Friday,
and post-conference training on Saturday.
This one-day class features selected topics from the popular two-day M101 course and
provides an introduction to the basic features of Mathematica 7. Topics
include graphics, functional/procedural/rule-based programming,
mathematical functions, and importing and exporting files and data.
No prior Mathematica experience is required for this course.
This course provides an introduction to parallel and distributed programming in
Mathematica. It discusses the underlying technology and core functions for developing
parallel applications, and
provides examples of the parallel development process. The course
provides the necessary knowledge and understanding to explore the
parallel capabilities of Mathematica, which are applicable both to multicore personal computers and large-scale computer grids.
This course covers the major concepts and features of the
integrated development environment at the core of
Wolfram Workbench. Features
such as source code editing, debugging, profiling, and unit testing
for advanced development of Mathematica code and projects are
presented and explained.
Course attendees are expected to have basic familiarity with Mathematica, especially package creation, approximately equivalent to that provided by "M101: A First Course in Mathematica."
This one-day course is designed to give experience with the
statistical tools that are available in Mathematica. Using real-world
and simulated datasets, participants will import data, extract parts
of the data based on various criteria, analyze the data, and visualize
Course attendees are expected to have basic familiarity with
Mathematica approximately equivalent to that provided by "M101: A First Course
in Mathematica." Attendees should also have basic
knowledge of descriptive statistics, mathematical statistics (to a
lesser extent), hypothesis testing, ANOVA, and regression.
This one-day course focuses on the programming capabilities of Mathematica, including functional, procedural, and rule-based programming. It includes practical hands-on exercises, and shows how to choose the appropriate programming paradigm for solving problems.
Course Prerequisites Mathematica approximately equivalent to that provided by "M101: A First Course in Mathematica." Experience with computer programming at the level of an introductory course in any computer programming language is also helpful.
