Description
The unique feature of this compact introduction to Mathematica is that it presents concepts in an order that closely follows a standard mathematics curriculum, rather than being structured along features of the software. As a result, the book provides a brief introduction to those aspects of the Mathematica software program most useful to students.

This book can be used in a variety of courses, from precalculus to linear algebra. Used as a supplementary text it will aid in bridging the gap between the mathematics in the course and Mathematica. In addition to its course use, this book will serve as an excellent tutorial for those wishing to learn Mathematica and brush up on their mathematics at the same time.

The second edition of this well-loved book is completely rewritten for Mathematica 6, including coverage of the new dynamic interface elements, several hundred exercises, and a new chapter on programming. Related Topics
