This talk illustrates capabilities in Mathematica 6 that are directly applicable for use in teaching and research on campus. Topics of this technical talk include:

  • 2D and 3D visualization
  • Dynamic interactivity
  • On-demand scientific data
  • Example-driven course materials
  • Symbolic interface construction
  • Practical and theoretical applications

Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 6 (, but prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required.

Paul Wellin began working at Wolfram Research 15 years ago. Prior to joining Wolfram Research he taught mathematics at the university and secondary levels. He is the author of several books, including the popular "Introduction to Programming with Mathematica" and "Computer Simulations with Mathematica." He is also the founder and editor-in-chief for the first five years of the journal, "Mathematica in Education and Research." Currently, Wellin directs the Wolfram Education Group, responsible for Mathematica training world-wide.
