* Announcing * THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO MATHEMATICA V3 by Jerry Glynn and Theodore W. Gray CD-ROM Electronic Edition This book is a major revision of the popular Beginner's Guide to Mathematica Version 2. Written by a well known mathematics teacher and the principle architect of the Mathematica Notebook front end, it is an ideal first book for anyone getting started with Mathematica, or interested in finding out more about it. The book also contains advanced chapters on the new features in Version 3, including complete listings of front end programming functions. The electronic edition allows you to see graphics in full color, see animations move, and listen to sounds. If the reader has Mathematica, the examples in the book can be modified and evalated, allowing experimentation without the hassle of re-typing input from a printed book. In all there are 70 chapters and 339 pages. For more information: http://www.mathware.com/BeginnersGuide mailto:info at mathware.com The book will be available in two forms: paper and CD-ROM. The paper edition, due in October, will be published by Cambridge University Press, and will be available in bookstores or from the web site above. The CD-ROM form is available immediately from MathWare at the web site above. Prices: Paperback: $24.95 (suggested retail) CD-ROM: $34.95 AUTHORS ------- Jerry Glynn and Theodore W.
