Official Course Description:
The Natural Science Lab Units in Mathematics and Computational Science will introduce the computer as a tool for the working mathematician, as well as for scientists in many other fields.
The lab Unit Symbolic Software introcduces Mathematica, a software package that can perform complex symbolic manipulations such as solving algebraic equations, finding integrals in closed form, or factoring mathematical expressions. Mathematica also has powerful and flexible graphing capabilities that are useful for illustrating concepts as well as numerical data. The computer will be used as a tool in this course so that you will also learn some mathematics alongside learning to use the computer program.

Additional Information:
First Year Labs will take place on Thursday and Friday afternoons, 14:15-18:30.
