Mathematica basics: get started!

Summary

This workshop will provide an introduction and suggested activities for those yet to start using Mathematica and the Wolfram Language as a CAS technology tool in their classrooms. Areas covered will include:
basic arithmetic and algebra command; visualisation tools (including ListPlot and ListLinePlot), idea of an ordered pair in a cartesian axis system, generation of sets of ordered pairs with the Table function; use of the Plot function to draw graphs (and Options to enhance output); use of the Manipulate function to create animations for the investigation of the behaviour of families of functions (polynomials and others); introduction to Graphics 2D and 3D primitives. For most effective participation a laptop with Mathematica software already loaded is desirable (no computer lab facilities are available).
