Mathematica at Ohlone for the Mathematics Department
How to Get Mathematica
Mathematica is currently installed in the following locations:
 Computer labs 
Math Learning Center (Room HH210, Hyman Hall, second floor, Fremont campus). Mathematica is also installed on many departmental machines throughout campus.  Computer clusters 
Ohlone College's Mathematica license can be used for grid computing. If you are interested in using Mathematica for parallel computing on a dedicated cluster, or in a distributed grid environment, please contact Paul Fish at Wolfram Research.
Mathematica can also be installed on:

Campus machines 
Contact site administrator ITS Service Desk for license availability and access. 
Faculty and staff personally owned machines 
Fill out the Site HomeUse Mathematica License Request Form to request a homeuse license from Wolfram.  Student personally owned machines 
Students can buy discounted licenses through Wolfram's Web Store, but if you're teaching with Mathematica, or a significant quantity of students will be purchasing licenses, please contact Paul Fish at Wolfram Research (paulf@wolfram.com) for better discounts.
Are you interested in putting Mathematica elsewhere? Please let Ohlone's IT Services or Paul Fish at Wolfram Research (paulf@wolfram.com) know.
Mathematica Tutorials
The first two tutorials are excellent for new users, and can be assigned to students as homework to learn Mathematica outside of class time.
