To download the second Mathematica notebook (the third lab is due December 20), click on the link "lab3.nb" below while holding down the shift key. Save the notebook on your computer and open this notebook in Mathematica (on a Mac or PC start up Mathematica and read in "lab3.nb" like in other software applications, on Unix just type "mathematica lab2.nb" in a terminal). Consult the Mathematica at Harvard page for instructions on how to get Mathematica on your own computer, how to get documentation etc. The labs in the basement of the Science center (Unix, PC and Mac) have Mathematica installed. Getting started with the computer assignments will probably be the biggest challenge. Start early and network around to find the best solution for you. Instructions, on how to use the notebooks and how to get credit can be found in the first notebook . When stuck, the FAQ page might help. Good luck!
