Mathematica is a multifacted tool for doing mathematics on a computer, from algebra and trigonometry through calculus and beyond. It can perform both symbolic and numeric calculations, and it provides numerous mathematical and statistical functions, letting you work with many different data formats, solve equations, and fit data to arbitrary functions. It can also graphically display functions and numerical data in two and three dimensions, allowing visualizations that you can easily manipulate. It is used by mathematicians and statisticians, scientists, engineers, economists, and even game developers. Mathematica can be installed on student-owned computers from the software drive; faculty- and staff-owned computers must obtain a home-use license.
This workshop is in two parts:
Tuesday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 13 from 6-9 p.m. A light dinner will be provided at 5:30 p.m.

In 2018, Yale University Press published two new books about King Philip's War: Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War by Amherst College Professor Lisa Brooks and Memory Lands: King Philip’s War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast by Christine Delucia. In this talk, these two authors will talk about their books with emphasis on the published texts and other archival resources they relied on in their research.
This lecture is free and open to the public and is part of the Rare Book School course "A History of Native American Books & Indigenous Sovereignty" held in the Amherst College Archives & Special Collections the week of June 10-15.
