Deadline The Mathematica project is due the last day of class. That means
Monday December 19'th for the Mo/We/Fr sections, and Tuesday December
20'th for the Tue/Thu sections. You hand in the Mathematica project
printout with the last homework. We need a physical printout which
contains the graphics and answers to the questions at the end of the
notebook. Show your work. Also for the graphics plots, we need to
see the command, which produced the plot.

Availability

Mathematica is installed on some computers in the basement of the Science center.
It might also be installed on some computers in the houses. If you want to try
an installation of Mathematica on your own computer,
get it here.
Note that you have to be on a Harvard network and have your PIN ready to download the
software and that requesting the Mathematica Password requires you to send the
request from a Harvard computer.

Installation

After you downloaded the program to your computer, start the application and follow
the instructions. During the installation progress, you have to enter the
Harvard Licence number L2482-2405. The number which you will get in return has
to be entered in the Mathematica Registration page. You will then be sent a
password by email. This is what you see during installation in

Send email to math21a@fas, if you plan to use Mathematica on a linux system.
