|This workbook/laboratory manual, designed for the first- or second-year physics student, integrates a computer algebra system, Mathematica, with calculus-based physics. Students learn physics, mathematics, and Mathematica by applying the system to numerous physics problems drawn from a broad range of topics in introductory calculus-based physics. Mathematica's extensive use of graphs helps students visualize solutions as well as find analytical solutions to the problems, which often are skills needed in physics research.|
