All Victorian secondary schools are now able to access the Wolfram software suite, thanks to a three-year agreement made with the Department.
The Wolfram suite of products includes powerful learning tools across science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and is internationally recognised as the global industry standard for engineers, economists, scientists and mathematicians. The suite has four unique applications in the areas of computation, problem modelling, coding and more:
Mathematica: Computation software with a broad range of functionality including graphical, geometric, numerical, symbolic, financial and statistical computations.
SystemModeler: A complete physical modelling and simulation tool to explore system behaviour across multiple domains.
Alpha Pro: A powerful tool for finding answers through dynamic computations on built-in data, algorithms and methods.
Programming Lab: An environment to learn programming language and modern computational thinking.
The licence arrangement covers all school and personal devices for all secondary school teachers and students. Each product can be downloaded individually on student and teacher devices using a vic.edu.au or education.vic.gov.au email. Find out more and get your licence here or go to the eduSTAR software catalogue and search for Wolfram.
Limited professional learning places are available for Secondary Science and Mathematics teachers on Friday 14 October in Carlton.
