Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Instructor-Led Course

Mathematica: An Introduction

Level: Beginner


This course introduces the core technologies needed to become an adept user of Mathematica, including the Wolfram Language, the notebook interface, programming fundamentals, visualization and interactivity features, and mathematics and statistics functionality. Limited registration and small class sizes allow for interaction with the instructor, and in-person courses allow additional time for discussion, exercises and Q&A. This course is helpful for people with little experience with Mathematica and the Wolfram Language, as well as for experienced users who would like to broaden their basic understanding of the system.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language, Mathematica
