Application Period: Jan. 24, 2018 - Feb. 28, 2018


McGill University has a site license for Mathematica, which is available to faculty, staff and students. If you or your students need help downloading it for upcoming work this semester, let me know and I'll help get you details.

Many of your students will likely use Mathematica for their  spring courses even if it's not listed as a requirement. So would 
you forward the links below to all of your students? These training resources will help them get up to speed with Mathematica and learn how to apply it to their coursework. The  first group of resources is great for beginners while the second group is ideal for those who have used Mathematica in one or two  classes already. Mathematica should be installed prior to either training.

Hands-on Start to Wolfram Mathematica
