Mathematica usage: You will find in the Course Calendar a link to a Mathematica notebook for each class. These notebooks will not be utilized in this class but they can be a resource for answering Mathematica based questions that will be included occasionally as a part of the regular homework assignments. No prior experience with Mathematica is required as all Mathematica based questions will be related to extending demos in Mathematica introduced to you in class and as a part of HW. Watching the following videos prior to starting your first Mathematica assignment will be useful: Notebooks Methods to Get Started Basic Calculations Basic Graphics Making Interactive Models

All engineering students have free access to Mathematica via Citrix remote server. In preparation to class download and install the Citrix Receiver software to your mobile device (laptop or tablet) from Citrix Download or Citrix Download for Linux.
