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.
