(chimes music) - [Voiceover] 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 into Mathematica 9. All these methods provide the power and flexibility you need to analyze your data, so you can make good decisions for your company. I'm sure you'll find that your time with Up and Running with Mathematica 9 will be time well spent.
