Subject:   Free Mathematica license for Demonstrations at College
Author: romeny
Date: Apr 26 2008
Mathematica ( ) is a revolutionary software pakkage for numerical
and symbolic calculations. It is a ‘high-level' programming language (short
and compact programming) and is used extensively on universities, research
institutes and the industry. Over the last 20 years Mathematica has become one
of the main players with millions of users.

Up until now high schools have not been able to experience the
possibilities Mathematica has to offer. We, the organizers of the 9th
International Mathematica Symposium (IMS'08), want to offer high school and
college teachers and students a head start by organizing a special Mathematica
Education Day on Sunday June 22nd, 2008, in Maastricht, the Netherlands. During
the education day the extensive possibilities to support education by the use of
Mathematica will be discussed and demonstrated.

It is now possible to make your own interactive applications for the
classroom. To give more momentum to these new possibilities Wolfram
Research Inc., the manufacturer of Mathematica, has made available 52
Mathematica licenses (for one year) to interested teachers of high schools in
the Netherlands, for free. For the goals, the benefits, some examples and the
conditions (you need to make some Demonstrations and present these in
Maastricht) for participating in this “Education Day Challenge” see:
