Some of the homework assignments will include problems to be solved using "partially completed" Mathematica notebooks to be provided to you. No prior experience with Mathematica will be required to complete these new ECE 454 assignments since partially completed notebooks to be provided will include syntax patterns that will be easy to learn and modify in order to complete the assignments. Watching the following videos prior to starting your first Mathematica assignment will be very useful: Notebooks Methods to Get Started Basic Calculations Basic Graphics Making Interactive Models

All engineering students have free access to Mathematica via Citrix remote server. Please download and install the Citrix Receiver software for your personal computer from Citrix Download or Citrix Download for Linux to have free access to Mathematica outside the EWS labs.
