How do I learn how to use Mathematica?

You can learn to use Mathematica in Lynda.com. The following are some Lynda.com courses that you may find helpful. Keep in mind that there are different versions of Mathematica that you can choose from. The latest version, 11.x, does not have any tutorials in Lynda.com at the moment. However, you can still learn Mathematica through 10.x tutorials and try to figure out the changes in the new version on your own. Or you have the option to simply use Mathematica 10.x.

  1. Mathematica 10 Essential Training: Learn the basics of Mathematica. This is a good course to try out if you are completely new.
  2. Mathematica 10 Advanced Analysis: Learn advanced data analysis in Mathematica.
  3. Up and Running with Mathematica 10: Also another basic course for Mathematica. This is a shorter course than the Essential Training course above, and does not go into as much depth.

How do I get Mathematica on my personal computer?

Most lab computers on campus have Mathematica pre-installed. You can find a lab with an empty computer that is available for Bucknell University members to use.

However, if you want to get it on your own computer, you can install Mathematica from myBucknell.

In myBucknell, scroll down until you see “Technology Support” (1) on the left hand side, click on it, and then select “Tools and Software” (2).

Capture

Now you will see a list of software. This will vary depending on your position in the University.

If you have access to Mathematica, it will be on the list.

Select Mathematica, and then check the “I agree” box on the next page. Then click “Next” for a download link. You may be redirected to the Mathematica page to create a Wolfram account. Simply provide the information requested.

If everything goes well, you should have access to the installer that you can download from the Mathematica site. Run the installer to get Mathematica on your computer.

How do I get Mathematica on a university-owned computer?

If you have a University-owned computer (your work computer), you can install Mathematica from Software Center if you’re on Windows, or Self-Service if you’re on a Mac (found under applications).
