© 2011 - Steven Tschantz Mathematica exercises part 1 Steven Tschantz 1/13/11 Introduction This course is about mathematical modeling, as applied to problems in economics. The tool we will use, both for communicat- ing about mathematics and economics and for computing, is the program Mathematica . Assignments will be posted in the form of Mathematica notebooks containing descriptions of the mathematical models considered, examples of the computations that can be carried out with Mathematica , and exercises to be completed using Mathematica and then returned by email. Your first task then will be to learn the basics of Mathematica and practice using it. I have prepared a very basic introduction to Mathematica in the notebook A quick start with Mathematica (click on this link or see the course homepage). You can have multiple windows open in Mathematica, working the exercises in this window while at the same time reading the quick start notebook for explanation. Complete the following exercises, save your results, and email your final version to [email protected] Editing notebooks We begin with practice in preparing Mathematica notebooks. 1. Save a copy of your notebook. Save a copy of this notebook under a new name by selecting File/Save As from the menu, navigating to appropriate location and giving the file a name, preferably one including your name to make it easier for me to identify when I collect assignments. You thus have your own working copy of this assignment which you can work on, saving your progress, as convenient, using File/Save.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
