Catch Up With Study Group
For help getting started, join any session 15 minutes early to submit questions. Previous Study Group topics include Wolfram Language basics, computable data, graphics and visualization, multiparadigm tools and applications, programming, Wolfram Notebooks, machine learning, image processing, calculus, system modeling and analyzing COVID-19 data.

Who are Daily Study Groups for?
Daily Study Groups are for high-school and college students, parents and educators looking for supplemental educational resources, or anyone interested in learning new skills.
Do I need to already know how to use the Wolfram Language?
Not at all. The study groups start with the basics, and newcomers can join any session 15 minutes early for some extra help. Recordings from earlier sessions are available for review or for catching up.
What do I need in order to participate?
Is there a fee to participate?
No! Wolfram Study Groups are a completely free resource, including free access to Wolfram Cloud.
What will I come away with from the study group?
You'll learn practical knowledge about the Wolfram Language and build skills in how to find answers to your questions, enabling you to continue your learning adventure long after the study groups end. A certificate of program completion will be awarded to participants who attend online sessions and pass auto-graded online quizzes. Additional certifications are available, depending on the current Study Group topics.
What if I need to miss a session?
You can join any session 15 minutes before the start time to get extra help and ask questions about topics covered at earlier sessions. You can catch up on any missed sessions by viewing recorded study group sessions. Study Group participants receive email notifications that include links to further resources, and extra review time is scheduled on Fridays. (If you miss any sessions earlier in the week, then Friday is a good day to show up.)
What will I learn?
Working with Wolfram Technology will encourage you to think computationally—how to leverage the power of computing technology and foundational programming—and not just for mathematics or computer science classes! The ideas and concepts you will learn are useful across subjects and curricula. Topics include creativity with different data types (graphics, color generation, audio and images); abstraction of foundational programming concepts (lists, visualization, maps and functions); working with real-world data; importing, exporting and visualizing data; machine Learning; image processing and creating applications and websites.
How does certification work?
Multiple-choice auto-graded quizzes will be posted in the cloud for study group participants. Pass all the quizzes to earn a certificate of program completion. Each qualified participant will receive a personalized Wolfram certificate. Some study groups include additional opportunities for certification, and all study groups provide helpful guidance for making progress in building your Wolfram Language skills and learning computational topics.
