Mathematica by Wolfram Research is available to all faculty, staff, and current registered students for academic-related activities at no additional cost to the end user.
Availability of the Mathematica software is provided through a license agreement coordinated by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and funded by the Technology Fee. The license agreement allows for at-home use of the software for educational-related activity only. The license agreement expires annually.
Please note there are three different installation types: campus install, faculty/staff home install, or student install. Please be sure you install the correct one. Installations on university-owned machines should be coordinated by logging a ticket via ihelp.
Installation for Faculty
Installation for Students
The first two tutorials are excellent for new users, and can be assigned to students as homework to learn
Mathematica outside of class time.
Teaching from Mathematica
Mathematica offers an interactive classroom experience that helps students explore and grasp concepts, plus
gives faculty the tools they need to easily create supporting course materials, assignments, and presentations.
Research with Mathematica
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.
