This workshop will show aspects of Mathematica that are useful for students to visualize concepts in undergraduate engineering courses. Faculty and students teaching courses will also learn how to author slideshows with nicely formatted text and formulas along with live calculations in the same environment. Researchers will see the basics of the programming language in Mathematica and useful ways to analyze data, create parallel programs (CPU or GPU hardware), and create models or simulations.

Specific focus will be given to the free-form input capabilities in Mathematica based on Wolfram|Alpha technology, creating simulations or models that show varying parameters in any type of calculation, creating publication-quality graphics, symbolic and numeric calculations, and new machine learning functionality.

The content is suitable for faculty, students, and researchers in any field in engineering.  Each attendee will receive an electronic copy of the examples to use as a guide for projects or course examples. The presentation portion is approximately one hour long with 30 minutes of Q&A following. No prior knowledge of Mathematica is required. Both sessions will present the same information so you need to register for only one.


Speaker: Andy Dorsett, Academic Technology Specialist
Andy has spent 10 years at Wolfram Research coaching both educators and students on applications of Mathematica in the classroom and beyond. He is a former Math educator with experience teaching students of all ages. During his time at Wolfram research, Andy has worked with hundreds of High Schools, Community Colleges and Universities across the Nation developing innovative courseware using Mathematica and other Wolfram technologies.
