Mathematica is used in engineering, mathematics, finance, physics, chemistry, biology, and a wide range of other fields. Mathematica is ideal for course lecture slideshows, student exploratory projects to support a text, faculty or student computations and visualizations related to research, creating full research papers, and any project where you want to visualize scientific information.
Northeastern has a license for students, faculty and staff to use Wolfram Alpha Pro. As a complement to Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha Pro lets you enter plain English input to compute and visualize answers online through your web browser. For professors, Wolfram Alpha Pro makes it easy to introduce students to computation across a wide array of disciplines. Students also get access to features like the Problem Generator and Solutions help.
