Wolfram Mathematica is the world's definitive system for modern technical computing. Mathematica is available to all Texas State students, free of charge (Windows and Mac).
Texas State faculty and staff who wish to purchase Mathematica for use on a Texas State-owned computer should send an e-mail request firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on Mathematica, visit the Wolfram Mathematica webpage.
Note: This version of Mathematica is for Texas State student use on personal computers only.
If you have questions about these prerequisites, please contact the IT Assistance Center (ITAC) before proceeding.
