Mathematica for Students Now Bundled with New Mathematica
Site Licenses for High Schools
June 21, 2005--Complimentary copies of Mathematica for
Students are now available with all new annual Mathematica site licenses for
high schools in the U.S. and Canada. These special one-year editions give
students all the powerful functionality of Mathematica for use
on their personal computers at home.
Mathematica--the technical software used at thousands of high schools
around the world--accelerates classroom curriculums in nearly all math
and science subjects, including algebra, trigonometry, calculus,
chemistry, physics, and computer science. Teachers use it every day to
create courseware and colorful 3D demos that make difficult topics come
alive for students.
"These complimentary licenses will give teachers much more freedom and
flexibility in developing their curriculums around Mathematica,"
said Paul Wellin, manager of Wolfram
Education Group. "Classroom time shouldn't be wasted in a computer
lab completing exercises that could be done at home."
Students use Mathematica to tackle all of their technical projects and
create professional-quality reports and presentations. In addition to
freeing up time in the classroom, these home-use licenses will give
students the opportunity to explore advanced subjects in greater detail
and gain valuable experience using the same software used at almost
every major university.
"We want students to be confident and comfortable using Mathematica
before they have to use it in college," said Valerie Smith, precollege
programs manager at Wolfram Research. "Using it at home--whenever and
however they want--will give these students a unique advantage. Now they
can work more independently, finish their assignments outside of school,
and virtually extend the classroom into their own homes."
For this special program, Wolfram Research will match each
new Mathematica license with a student home-use license at no
extra charge. Additional student copies are also available for a
discounted price. Interested schools can contact Wolfram Research at
