The motive for writing this book has stemmed from the belief that Mathematica is a necessary computational companion tool for college level technical courses. Mathematica is cutting-edge computer software designed to ease tedious longhand technical symbolic and numeric calculations; it has also superb graphic capabilities. This book mainly focuses on the latter. As the title implies, “Mathematica Example Book for Beginners” the book shows by the way of example how Mathematica is applied by plotting a variety of mathematical functions encountered in technical, scientific, engineering and mathematics.
This book is to be considered a flexible guideline on how to learn and teach Mathematica graphic commands. For instance the class practices and the homework assignments are to be altered, adjusting to the students’ interest. The exam files are samples, and need to be altered accordingly. The book represents how the course was taught by the author; individuals adapting the book have the total freedom to modify and reorganize its contents.
