The unique feature of this compact student's introduction to Mathematica® and the Wolfram Language™ is that the order of the material closely follows a standard mathematics curriculum. As a result, it provides a brief introduction to those aspects of the Mathematica® software program most useful to students. Used as a supplementary text, it will help bridge the gap between Mathematica® and the mathematics in the course, and will serve as an excellent tutorial for former students. There have been significant changes to Mathematica® since the second edition, and all chapters have now been updated to account for new features in the software, including natural language queries and the vast stores of real-world data that are now integrated through the cloud. This third edition also includes many new exercises and a chapter on 3D printing that showcases the new computational geometry capabilities that will equip readers to print in 3D.Read more
- Updated chapters cover the newest developments in the software, including natural language queries and the vast stores of real-world data now integrated through the cloud
- Clearly presents software commands and procedures alongside mathematical ideas to demonstrate how Mathematica® can illuminate high school and university mathematics
- The book does not assume that the reader is an expert in the underlying mathematics

‘This book is an easy-to-read introduction to Mathematica. It is interspersed with helpful hints that make interacting with Mathematica more efficient and examples to test the reader's comprehension. This book is good for learning how to use Mathematica to graph functions, perform algebraic manipulation, and approach topics from calculus and linear algebra. This new version shines some light on entity objects and accessing Wolfram's curated data which is needed because their structure is unintuitive and because of their growing prominence in the Wolfram ecosystem. The new final chapter on 3D printing gives readers the tools to quickly design and 3D print physical objects that embody mathematical surfaces. These two additions showcase recent advances in the Wolfram Language and ensure that the whole book remains relevant and up to date.'

‘Mathematica has the power to unravel some of the current mysteries of mathematics – but only if you know how to ask it the right questions. The 3rd edition of The Student's Introduction to Mathematica and the Wolfram Language can be your well-used guide for such exploration. Beginning and experienced Mathematica users will easily learn from the pages of this book especially given the recent changes to Mathematica. Even more, the 3rd edition moves into a new dimension, giving details on 3D printing! Grab one for yourself and another for a student you know.' Tim Chartier, Davidson College, North Carolina
