We will also be using Mathematica 4.0 as a teaching aide (visualization) and as a possible tool to be used in course research projects. No text assigned for this purpose (the Wolfram book is available online), but numerous books, that describe Mathematica based physics problem solving, are available. Depending on student interest, a tutorial session will be made available. The following URL http://www.wolfram.com points to a site that lists a good collection.Note: IF YOU HAVE A DOCUMENTED DISABILITY THAT MAY REQUIRE ASSISTANCE, YOU WILL NEED TO CONTACT THE DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTER FOR COORDINATION IN YOUR ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATIONS.
