Mathematica is a software package for communicating scientific ideas, whether this is visualization of a concept in an intro-level course, or creating a simulation of a new idea related to research.
Mathematica is used in virtually all of the world's top universities and colleges, and is commonly used in departments such as Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Business and Finance, Life Sciences, Engineering, and Computer Science.
