This technical talk will show live calculations in Mathematica 12 and other Wolfram technologies relevant to courses and research. Specific topics include:
* Enter calculations in everyday English, or using the flexible Wolfram Language
* Visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D
* Use the Predictive Interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options
* Access trillions of bits of on-demand data
* Easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications
* Access 12,000 free course-ready applications
* Utilize the Wolfram Language's wide scope of built-in functions, or create your own
* Get deep support for specialized areas including machine learning, time series, image processing, parallelization, and control systems, with no add-ons required
Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 12 (https://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-12/), but prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required.
Andy Dorsett began at Wolfram Research in July 2008. During this time he has worked with high schools, community colleges, and universities in more than 25 states that have Mathematica licenses. In addition to working directly with campuses to help professors and students use Wolfram technology well, he also serves as the Academic Sales Team's Mentor and Sales Engineer.
Prior to Wolfram Research, Andy spent 8 years in the world of Math Education. He taught junior high and high school Math, and was an adjunct professor at Indiana State University.
