Mathematica is a computational software program, integrating computation into complete workflows, used in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields and other areas of technical computing. To read more about Mathematica’s full scale use go to: http://www.wolfram.com
Mathematica is currently installed in some of the computer labs across campus. To find out where the software is installed go here: http://colfax.cortland.edu/acsweb/lab_schedule.asp and click on the “search for software” link

The first two tutorials are excellent for new users, and can be assigned to students as homework to learn Mathematica outside of class time.
Follow along in Mathematica as you watch this multi-part screencast that teaches you the basics—how to create your first notebook, calculations, visualizations, interactive examples, and more.
An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language
This book helps students learn the Wolfram Language, the language of Mathematica, to use it for their own projects.
Access step-by-step instructions ranging from how to create animations to basic syntax information.
Search Wolfram's large collection of materials for example calculations or tutorials in your field of interest.
Mathematica offers an interactive classroom experience that helps students explore and grasp concepts, plus gives faculty the tools they need to easily create supporting course materials, assignments, and presentations.
Learn how to make your classroom dynamic with interactive models, explore computation and visualization capabilities in Mathematica that make it useful for teaching practically any subject at any level, and get best-practice suggestions for course integration.
Learn how to create a slideshow for class that shows a mixture of graphics, calculations, and nicely formatted text, with live calculations or animations.
Download pre-built, open-code examples from a daily-growing collection of interactive visualizations, spanning a remarkable range of topics.
Access on-demand and live courses on Mathematica, SystemModeler, and other Wolfram technologies.
Rather than requiring different toolkits for different jobs, Mathematica integrates the world's largest collection of algorithms, high-performance computing capabilities, and a powerful visualization engine in one coherent system, making it ideal for academic research in just about any discipline.
Explore Mathematica's high-level and multi-paradigm programming language, support for parallel computing and GPU architectures, built-in functionality for specialized application areas, and multiple publishing and deployment options for sharing your work.
Learn how to create programs that take advantage of multicore machines or available clusters.
Learn what areas of Mathematica are useful for specific fields.
