M10 Course Orientation

A video overview is available.

What is Mathematica?

Mathematica is the most powerful global computation system which was first released in 1988. Although the M10 course will focus on using Mathematica for mathematical computations and graphing, it is actually much more powerful than that. Mathematica is used at colleges and corporations throughout the world to do modeling, simulation, visualization, development, documentation and deployment.

Class Organization
The M10 Course is a hybrid course which means that students will be required to attend two class meetings, and the rest of the time will be self-paced. The course is divided into five modules, and a project which complements each module must be completed by the scheduled due date. The first class meeting will be an orientation, and the second class meeting will be a final exam. The class meetings, as well as your individual work for this course must take place in the CFT Building, Room T105. This will be the only computer lab in the College where both Mathematica and the M10 course will be available. The lab is available Monday through Friday.
