Mathematica is a symbolic mathematical computation program, sometimes called a computer algebra program, used in many scientific, engineering, mathematical, and computing fields.
ITS maintains a site license for Mathematica which allows for the its installation on Student, Faculty, and Staff computers as well as the Public Computer Labs, Academic Computer Labs, and Smart Classroom podium computers.
Mathematica is available on Amazon AppStream, you can use this in your browser without installing it. See our Apps Catalog for a full list of software available on AppStream. You can also download and install Mathematica on your personal device.
Launch the application and activate by logging into Lafayette SSO by clicking the Sign in button under the Activate through your organization (SSO) section of the Wolfram Product Activation window. This will activate Mathematica on the computer until September when the license renews annually. You may need to log in again after this date.
On college-owned lab computers, classroom podiums, and AppStream, activation is not needed. A license server is used to manage the license for these devices.
Updates can be downloaded from Wolfram by entering your @lafayette email address at www.wolfram.com/siteinfo.
The license on your personal device auto-renews every August, for as long as you have an active Lafayette account. If your license is not auto-renewed, contact the Help Desk at email@example.com or (610) 330-5501.
