Course Description:

         The courses are aimed at teachers of mathematics and other
scientific subjects who wish to enhance their use of Mathematica for
presentations, projects, teaching, and research. The introductory
course is
for people whose experience with Mathematica ranges from none to some
casual use; the intermediate course will go into more detail on
and the numerical, symbolic, and graphical issues that arise when trying
write efficient general-purpose r outines. Both courses will use
often from calculus, with the following goals:

7 To generate effective graphical images and animations.

7 To use, modify, and create Mathematica code for a variety of symbolic
computations relevant to calculus and other mathematical applications.

7 To use the sophisticated front end of version 3.0 to create quality
Mathematica notebooks and to use them for effective presentations.

There will be ample lab time during which the instructors can provide
individual help; in particular, participants are welcome to suggest
projects for implementation.

High school teachers and others should note that graduate course credit
