Abstract: This talk illustrates capabilities in Mathematica 10 and other Wolfram technologies that are directly applicable for use in teaching and research on campus. Topics of these technical talks include:

• Enter calculations in everyday English, or using the flexible Wolfram Language
• Visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D
• Store and share documents locally or in the Wolfram Cloud
• Use the Predictive Interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options
• Access trillions of bits of on-demand data
• Easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications
• Access 10,000 free course-ready applications
• Get deep support for specialized areas including machine learning, time series, image processing, parallelization, and control systems, with no add-ons required

Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 10 (http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-10/), but prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required.

Bio: Andy Dorsett began at Wolfram Research in July 2008. During this time he has worked with High Schools, Community Colleges, and Universities in over 25 states that have Mathematica licenses. He currently is part of a team that is creating Mathematica courseware for Math professors. In addition, Andy has entered into a training role that involves distribution, sales engineering, and training.
Prior to Wolfram Research, Andy spent 8 years in the world of Math Education. He taught junior high and high school Math, and was an adjunct professor at Indiana State University.
