The course introduces students to Mathematica's computing environment and all the basic features of the software. Starting with basic operations and computations, students will be introduced to graphics and visualization and mathematical computations and will learn through a series of hands-on lab exercises to use the Mathematica programming language for modeling and data analysis. While there are no prerequisites, a basic familiarity with computing tools and understanding of descriptive statistics, along with a basic calculus background and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them, is expected.
