The unique feature of this compact student's introduction is that it presents concepts in an order that closely follows a standard mathematics curriculum, rather than structure the book along features of the software. As a result, the book provides a brief introduction to those aspects of the Mathematica software program most useful to students. Furthermore, Mathematica commands are introduced as a means of solving problems and illuminating the underlying mathematical principles. No prerequisites other than high school level mathematics are assumed. This book can be used in a variety of courses, from precalculus to linear algebra. Used as a supplementary text it will aid in bridging the gap between the mathematics in the course and Mathematica. In addition to its course use, this book will serve as an excellent tutorial for those wishing to learn Mathematica and brush up on their mathematics at the same time.If you have created a large notebook file, and want to shrink its file size (so that it will fit on a nearly full floppy disk, for instance, or to make it easier to email to a friend) do this: Open the notebook and delete the graphics one by one.
