Computational Research and Studies with Mathematica: Using The Wolfram Language and Mathematica for your Problem Sets, Research, and Learning

Friday, January 14, 2022 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Millions of students all over the world use the Wolfram Language as a reliable and powerful tool for doing computations in calculus. During this talk, I will give an overview of recent initiatives to build on these computational capabilities and transition the Wolfram Language to a system for learning the fundamental concepts, theorems and applications of calculus. These initiatives include a successful program for solving all the exercises in a popular calculus textbook using the Wolfram Language,  fully refreshed documentation pages with textbook-style examples for single and multivariable calculus,  large benchmark comparisons  for limits, integrals and other basic calculus operations, and free online courses along with cohort-based study groups for calculus and related areas of the undergraduate curriculum. The overall goal of this program is to apply the Wolfram Language for making calculus education accessible and enjoyable for students everywhere.
