September 24 marked the release of the third edition of one of our most successful and widespread teaching tools: Cliff Hastings, Kelvin Mischo and Michael Morrison’s debut book, Hands-on Start to Wolfram Mathematica and Programming with the Wolfram Language. As the publishing assistant at Wolfram Research, I’ve spent the past few weeks working with the authors to get this new version ready to publish. As we did with the second-edition release, I’ll let Cliff and Kelvin tell us a bit about what’s new in the third edition, why Hands-on Start is so successful and what’s on the horizon (Hands-on Start to Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition!).

As Conrad Wolfram writes in his new book, education in computational thinking and quantitative problem solving are largely absent from today’s mathematics curricula. With the current crisis changing education practice in many ways, what better time to try out a sample of our new curriculum? It’s a curriculum fit for learners who want to be better prepared for an AI age where computers can be used to their full potential.
It’s a beta release, a first sample manifestation of what can be deployed in a self-study mode to implement The Math(s) Fix. We’re stretching what can be done in a browser to the limit, so please be patient with refresh times. The content and intended learning outcomes are the key points to look out for; you can see how we’ve merged the learning of general “thinking” outcomes and computation outcomes with real contexts in accessible problems.

The first half of 2020 has brought with it another exciting batch of publications. Wolfram Media has released Conrad Wolfram’s The Math(s) Fix. Keep an eye out for the upcoming third edition of Hands-on Start to Wolfram Mathematica later in 2020.

Wolfram Research has always believed in the power of computation to deliver better decisions. But there are two sides to achieving this: not only the best computational technology but also the best education for computational thinking.
After more than 15 years of conceptualising the idea, 10 years of build-out and 2 years of writing and editing, I have assembled The Math(s) Fix: An Education Blueprint for the AI Age (or TMF for short) and thrown it out to the world today in ink and e-ink.

It’s been another big year of exploration with the Wolfram Language. CEO Stephen Wolfram’s new book takes us on a tour of his computational adventures throughout the years. We’re also excited to introduce a Spanish-language version of the popular An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language, as well as books to enhance the mathematics and engineering curricula. There’s something new for everyone, from students to lifelong adventurers, to discover with the Wolfram Language. Just in time for the holidays, find the perfect read for those who love learning new things—including yourself!
Join Stephen Wolfram as he brings the reader along on some of his most surprising and engaging intellectual adventures, showcasing his own signature way of thinking about an impressive range of subjects. From science consulting for a Hollywood movie, solving problems of AI ethics, hunting for the source of an unusual polyhedron, communicating with extraterrestrials, to finding the fundamental theory of physics and exploring the digits of pi, this lively book of essays captures the infectious energy and curiosity of one of the great pioneers of the computational world.

It’s not really late summer unless you’re armed with an apple and a good book. There’s been a recent slew of incredible books utilizing the capabilities of the Wolfram Language that make sure your coding knowledge never stops growing and your reading list stays stocked. (And be sure to check the farmers’ market for those apples.)

Here at Wolfram Research, we’re always looking to add fresh material to our reading lists, and this winter brings a crop of new books that make use of the Wolfram Language’s power and versatility. Physics and math are represented, as usual, but economics and specialized financial mathematics make a showing as well. Also of note, a musician and engineer analyzes “sound in the time domain.” Brilliant minds prove once again that, with the Wolfram Language, the possibilities are endless.

We’re always excited to see what new things people have created using Wolfram technologies. As the broad geographical distribution of Wolfram Community contributors illustrates, people all over the world are doing great things with the Wolfram Language. In this vein, today we want to highlight some recent books written in languages other than English that utilize Wolfram technologies. From engineering to statistics, these books provide valuable information for those looking to dig a little deeper into scientific applications of the Wolfram Language.
