Wolfram Research Awards Mathematica to Students at National Competition
February 26, 2009--Continuing its long-standing
commitment to education-related programs, Wolfram Research recently
awarded Mathematica for Students 7 to all participants at the twelfth
annual Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT).
This year's tournament brought together over 120 teams
representing more than 900 students from across the United States
to solve advanced problems in algebra, geometry, calculus, and
combinatorics. Many students participating in the competition,
including several of the event's top winners, use Mathematica in
their studies and in preparation for HMMT.
"We are excited to support student competitions, such as HMMT, that
promote mathematics and education," said Cliff Hastings, Director
of Academic Initiatives at Wolfram Research. "We know Mathematica
can help these students push the limits as they move forward in
their education, and we want to put that power into their hands."
While Mathematica is already a popular tool for high school and
college students around the world, these awards will give the
students an advantage in their future studies. By providing
Mathematica for Students for free, Wolfram Research hopes to make
it easier for the students to advance their projects and explorations outside of
