Mathematica offers an interactive classroom experience that helps students explore and grasp concepts; plus, it gives faculty the tools they need to easily create supporting course materials, assignments, and presentations.

Mathematica is commonly used in the following types of departments:

  • Mathematical sciences: Applied mathematics, operations research, pure mathematics, and statistics
  • Physical sciences: Chemistry, Earth science, experimental physics, materials science, and theoretical physics
  • Business/finance: Financial analysis, actuarial sciences, and management science
  • Life sciences: Biology, biochemistry, psychology, environmental sciences, and medical research
  • Engineering: Aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, communications engineering, mechanical engineering, and nuclear engineering
  • Computer sciences: Computer engineering, software development, and graphics

Resources for Educators


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.
