Using Mathematica in Math 22B

The software package Mathematica can perform many symbolic and numerical computations including graphic display. It is worth your time to learn how to use this software.

Watch the tutorial Hands-on Start to Mathematica to get started. You can then view the tutorials How to to accomplish specific tasks. In particular, you can use Mathematica to perform many linear algebra computations including the computation of eigenvalues and eigenvalues.

Here are some uses of Mathematica:

1. Examples from calculus. For an in-depth coverage see Wolfram Research.

2. Examples from linear algebra. For an in-depth coverage see Wolfram Research.

If you do not have access to either MatLab or Mathematica, you might consider using Wolfram|Alpha Pro. Here are some examples using WolframAlpha.
