Wolfram Technologies: The Modernization of Educational Publishing

June 20, 2013 — Wolfram Blog Team

Have an interest in mathematics or science? Wolfram technologies like Mathematica and the Computable Document Format (CDF) are bringing us to the next level of educational experience through top-notch publishing environments and interactive course content from premier math and science leaders.

Interactive CDF books

The Theoretical Minimum: What You Need to Know to Start Doing Physics, written by leading physicist Leonard Susskind and hacker-scientist George E. Hrabovsky, made it onto The New York Times nonfiction bestseller list earlier this year. The authors fully typeset the book in Mathematica, and it represents one way Wolfram technologies are leading the modernization of publishing.

With live interactive content, CDF allows you to explore scenarios and engage with results powered by real-time computation.

In his book Interactive Multivariable Calculus, Keith Stroyan, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Iowa, shows how individuals can modify functions or points. Stroyan delivers a whole new personalized experience for learning this core subject for a variety of disciplines. Readers will find themselves fully engaged through beautifully explained examples coupled with interactive CDFs for hands-on exploration.

Is your appetite for knowledge still not sated? See how Wolfram technologies make education even more accessible and exciting in these other groundbreaking books:

  • Working Knowledge: STEM Essentials for the 21st Century, by Karl Hess. Designed to inspire a wide range of readers, from high school and undergraduate students to aspiring teachers and current teachers, Hess beautifully explores the possibilities in studying the natural sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
  • Irreducibility and Computational Equivalence, by Hector Zenil, is an engaging discussion on the rising role of computation as it applies to the natural and social sciences. A CDF version of the book is available via download with purchase of the print book.

Wondering how else you can incorporate computational interactivity in your own life? Learn more about CDF and Wolfram CDF Player today.
