Special Training Opportunities

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.


M101: A First Course in Mathematica
Wednesday, October 21 (8:30am–5pm)
Instructor: Harry Calkins
Location: Homewood Suites (adjacent to Hilton Garden Inn)

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.

Course Prerequisites
No prior Mathematica experience is required for this course.

M225: Parallel Computing with Mathematica
Wednesday, October 21 (8:30am–noon)
Instructor: Eric Wort
Location: Hilton Garden Inn

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.

Course Prerequisites
Course attendees are expected to have basic familiarity with Mathematica approximately equivalent to that provided by "M101: A First Course in Mathematica" and "M221: Introduction to Programming in Mathematica."

M235: Mathematica Development using Wolfram Workbench
Wednesday, October 21 (1–5pm)
Instructor: Adam Berry
Location: Hilton Garden Inn

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 Prerequisites
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."

M215: Applied Statistical Analysis
Friday, October 23 (8:30am–5pm)
Instructor: Harry Calkins
Location: Homewood Suites (adjacent to Hilton Garden Inn)

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 the results.

Course Prerequisites
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.

M221: Introduction to Programming in Mathematica
Saturday, October 24 (8:30am–5pm)
Instructor: Paul Wellin
Location: Homewood Suites (adjacent to Hilton Garden Inn)

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.
