STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
Educators and Schools
"From my experiences, I really feel that Mathematica is a tool that schools should embrace early. It's not a question of should we embrace it but I think the earlier we get started on it, the better."

Educators and schools are under pressure to prepare students for entry into the workforce, while maintaining high test scores. Thousands of schools have adopted Mathematica to help them engage students, increase understanding of STEM concepts, and improve performance.

You can see the positive effects of Mathematica's influence around the world—from each of the world's 200 top-ranked universities to the top high schools in the United States. And because Mathematica is used at Fortune 500 companies and government research labs, introducing students to it now will give them experience with a tool they can continue to use throughout their lifetime.

Mathematica helps educators make their classrooms dynamic—where students can interactively explore concepts in math, physics, economics, biology, engineering, or virtually any subject.

  • Easily solve equations and analyze mathematical and scientific data
  • Visualize functions or data in 2D or 3D
  • Access real-world data or use your own for analysis
  • Create and present lessons, lectures, and class materials featuring interactive content
  • Get started quickly with point-and-click palettes and free-form linguistic input

To help you get started in integrating Mathematica within the classroom, we've created programs to utilize Mathematica for teaching STEM subjects. Contact us for more information or to request a customized program for your school.

Whether you're interested in baking, business, or basketball, you'll need to know something about STEM. In fact, it's predicted that 80% of new jobs will require math and science, so learning STEM will be crucial as you enter the workforce. Mathematica can help you explore these fields in ways you never thought were possible, and build the knowledge and skills you need for an exciting and rewarding career.

From simple calculator operations to high-level software development, Mathematica is used for all sorts of classes, including math, physics, engineering, sociology, chemistry, biology, and even music and art.

  • Visualize functions or data in 2D or 3D, and build interactive models
  • Access real-world data or use your own for analysis
  • Write lab reports and present your findings—all within Mathematica
  • Get started quickly with point-and-click palettes and free-form linguistic input

To help you get started, below are several programs that make it even easier to use Mathematica for your classes and continue utilizing Mathematica throughout your career.
