Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

SPECIAL EVENT

Daily Study Groups

Multiple Certifications
Certification Levels: Program completion with other levels available depending on topic
Wolfram Daily Study Groups are fun, directed, incremental learning resources. Designed with students in mind, they are also a great opportunity for educators and parents looking for quality resources, or anyone interested in learning new skills. Sessions run daily, Monday through Friday. A Wolfram certified instructor guides each session by sharing short lessons, polling the group to review key concepts, introducing practice problems and answering questions. Read the blog post to learn more about the free Daily Study Groups.

FAQ

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.

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.

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. Archived sessions are linked above for review or for catching up.

What do I need in order to participate?

A computer, a reliable internet connection and the willingness to learn and participate in an online group setting. Participants are encouraged to have access to Mathematica or Wolfram One.

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. Study Group participants receive email notifications that include links to further resources and session recordings, 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.
