Downloading Mathematica

Mathematica is installed on all computers in Campus Computer Labs.  Please see below for information on installing it on other college-owned computers, and personally owned machines. This page also provides other helpful information about Mathematica.

Installation on College-Owned Computers

Please create a ticket through the Faculty and Staff IT Support page.

Installation on Faculty and Staff Personally Owned Computers

Please complete the Mathematica Home Use Request form and information on downloading the software will be given to you.

Installation on Student Personally Owned Computers

Please complete the Mathematica Home Use Request form and information on downloading the software will be given to you.

The first two tutorials are excellent for new users, and can be assigned to students as homework to learn Mathematica outside of class time.

  • Hands-on Start to Mathematica - Follow along in Mathematica as you watch this multi-part screencast that teaches you the basics - how to create your first notebook, calculations, visualizations, interactive examples, and more.
  • What's New in Mathematica 10 - Provides examples to help you get started with new functionality in Mathematica 10, including machine learning, computational geometry, geographic computation, and device connectivity.
  • How To Topics - Access step-by-step instructions ranging from how to create animations to basic syntax information.
  • Learning Center - Search Wolfram's large collection of materials for example calculations or tutorials in your field of interest.

Mathematica offers an interactive classroom experience that helps students explore and grasp concepts, plus gives faculty the tools they need to easily create supporting course materials, assignments, and presentations.

Resources for educators

  • Mathematica for Teaching and Education - Learn how to make your classroom dynamic with interactive models, explore computation and visualization capabilities in Mathematica that make it useful for teaching practically any subject at any level, and get best practice suggestions for course integration.
  • How To Create a Lecture Slideshow - Learn how to create a slideshow for class that shows a mixture of graphics, calculations, and nicely formatted text, with live calculations or animations.
  • Wolfram Demonstrations Project - Download pre-built, open-code examples from a daily-growing collection of interactive visualizations, spanning a remarkable range of topics.
  • Wolfram Training Education Courses - Access on-demand and live courses on Mathematica, SystemModeler, and other Wolfram technologies.

Rather than requiring different toolkits for different jobs, Mathematica integrates the world's largest collection of algorithms, high-performance computing capabilities, and a powerful visualization engine in one coherent system, making it ideal for academic research in just about any discipline.

Resources for researchers

  • Mathematica for University Research - Explore mathematica's high-level and multi-paradign programming language, support for parallel computing and GPU architectures, built-in functionality for specialized application areas, and multiple publishing and deployment options for sharing your work.
  • Utilizing HPC and Grid Computing in Education - Learn how to create programs and take advantage of multi-core machines or a dedicated cluster.
  • Field-Specific Applications - Learn what areas of Mathematica are useful for specific fields.
