if you have an access to MyMathLab from previous math courses, you can use an electronic version of the textbook available online: email me to get the student registration instructions. - WeBWorK is an open-source online homework system for math and sciences courses supported by the MAA and the NSF.
We will use it for our homework. You should be able to log in using your Wilkes username and password.
The name of the WeBWorK course is MTH_212_SPR_2018. - Mathematica is a Wolfram's original product - primarily aimed at technical computing for R&D and education. We will use it for labs and projects.
To start with Mathematica, use the following links and tutorials:
- Mathematica at Wilkes
- Video tutorials: hands-on Start to Mathematica
- Wolfram's Getting Started with Mathematica
- Mathematica manual
from the publisher of your textbook
- Another Mathematica tutorial
Important: use Wilkes LIVE to submit Mathematica assignments.
