You're absolutely correct. It would be impossible for anyone to learn how to 
solve such a problem on Mathematica in several days if they had no 
experience with Mathematica to begin with. Tell your university, college or 
professor that they are being totally unrealistic and unfair.

If you are pursuing a technical career it is well worth having and learning 
Mathematica but it needs something more like a semester course in it to be 
able to use it comfortably on real problems.
