## MTH 321: Introductory applications of mathematical software

This is a course that I created back in 2014 (that continues to run, typically in the Fall and Spring) to introduce students to Mathematica, Matlab, and LaTeX. In the future, I will be incorporating modules on Python and/or Julia. This hands-on course has been attended by over 80 undergradutes, as well as a handfull of graduate students and faculty as well!

I wrote a (~200 page) textbook to accompany this course which can be found here.
