What is Mathematica?

Mathematica is a software package which is ideal 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 the following types of departments: Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Business and Finance, Life Sciences, Engineering, and Computer Science.

For more information, please see the Wolfram Solutions and the Mathematica Overview web pages.

What is Wolfram|Alpha Pro?

Wolfram|Alpha Pro is an engine for computing answers and providing knowledge. It works by using its vast store of expert-level knowledge and algorithms to automatically answer questions, do analysis, and generate reports. Wolfram|Alpha’s long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge computable and broadly accessible.
