Up and Running with Mathematica 9
Video duration: 0s 1h 42m Beginner


Mathematica is a computational platform with the power and flexibility you need to analyze data and make good decisions for your company. Similar to a programming language, it provides a complete environment for doing math. This course shows information workers how to perform advanced data analysis using Mathematica 9.

Curt Frye teaches you how to set up Mathematica notebooks, assign values to variables, perform simple calculations, create and manipulate matrices, enter equations in linear and descriptive form, write and debug Mathematica scripts, and visualize data with charts.

NOTE: Basic knowledge of linear algebra is helpful for this course, but not required.

Topics include:
  • Managing Mathematica workbooks
  • Assigning values to variables
  • Calculating values with built-in functions
  • Manipulating matrices
  • Importing and exporting data
  • Defining functions
  • Creating charts


Hi, I'm Curt Frye. Welcome to Up and Running with Mathematica 9. In this course, I'll show you how to use Mathematica to perform calculations on your data. I'll start by showing you how to run Mathematica, manage Mathematica Notebooks and get help if you need it. Next I'll show you how to assign values to variables, use built-in commands to control Mathematica and perform calculations using mathematical operators and built-in functions.

Chapter Three shows you how to perform calculations on matrix and vector data, while Chapter Four demonstrates how to use external data, comment your code, and debug your scripts. Finally, Chapter Five demonstrates how to plot your data using the capabilities built in to Mathematica 9. All of these methods provide the power and flexibility you need to analyze your data, so you can make good decisions for you company. I'm sure you'll find that your time with Up and Running with Mathematica 9 will be time well spent.

There are currently no FAQs about Up and Running with Mathematica 9.
