About the Author:

Cliff Hastings has been at Wolfram Research since 1997. After graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor s degree in mathematics from Monmouth College, he joined Wolfram as an evangelist aboard the MathMobile, traveling the country training people to use Mathematica. As the author of the original Hands-on Start to Mathematica video series, his passion has always been helping people get started with Mathematica.

Kelvin Mischo is a Certified Mathematica Trainer and works at Wolfram Research overseeing strategic relationships with academic organizations in North America. After learning Mathematica as a student at the University of Illinois, Kelvin joined Wolfram in 1998 to work with high schools on the integration of Mathematica into their courses. Kelvin has given hundreds of technical seminars and trainings on Mathematica to high schools, two-year colleges, and universities.

Michael Morrison joined Wolfram Research in 2005 after completing a bachelor s degree in computer science and mathematics from Illinois Wesleyan University and a master s degree in mathematics from Illinois State University. While at Wolfram, Michael held a variety of positions, ranging from the technical education of internal staff to using Mathematica for data analysis and reporting initiatives. Michael is currently employed at Illinois Wesleyan University, where he oversees research and analytics for the Advancement Office.

Review:

This book is a much-needed complement to existing support material for Mathematica in particular, and Wolfram technologies in general. It puts to rest, once and for all, the frequently heard claim that Mathematica is difficult and not accessible to the school and college levels of our computational universe. --FRED SZABO: Concordia University in Montreal, author of Actuaries' Survival Guide

Mathematica has had a transformative effect on my teaching and on student learning in all of my classes, from my lowest-level high-school honors chemistry classes to my most advanced classes in computational chemistry, computational medicinal chemistry and scientific programming. --ROBERT GOTWALS: North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics
