VMI has acquired a site license for *Mathematica*, It is a high powered computer program for technical computing capable of handling a broad range of mathematical problems. With it, one can (among many other things)

- Solve algebraic equations,
- Perform a broad range of calculus operations, including computing derivatives and integrals,
- Solve differential equations,
- Perform a wide array of statistical tests, and
- Graph 2D and 3D functions.

The link https://my.vmi.edu/mathematica/ takes one to the VMI Portal, which contains instructions for downloading/installing *Mathematica* on your machine.

The installation process requires getting a Wolfram ID. With it, you can access Wolfram|Alpha Pro, providing step-by-step solutions, practice problem generators, and the ability to quickly build web-apps that use real-world, up to the minute data. (*Cadets: check first with instructors about using this for classwork*.)

If you have any questions about *Mathematica*, or the installation process, please contact COL Greg Hartman, Professor of Applied Mathematics.
