It's the Macintosh of the interpreted software languages, it just works right out of the box!

5.0 6 years ago

Pros:

The most critical feature of Mathematica (and Wolfram products in general) is that everything is seamlessly perfectly integrated. Everything is curated and maintained up to date. Competing platforms like Matlab sure offer a larger set of functionalities, but the integration of the many "packages" is too often very poor. In Mathematica, every package is fully integrated with the rest of the platform like no other software. Maybe you can say that Labview somehow reaches the same level of integration. Mathematica is a very flexible and multi-purpose software language that can be used for programming pretty much anything. New functionality like "Cloud-deploy" allow anybody to run algorithm made in Mathematica from anywhere in the world, from any device, with the only need of having an internet connection and a compatible browser.

Cons:

Some secondary functionalities like the Presentation notebook are not so well developed, yet. That said, I doubt many will ever use it.

Engineering Grad Student Review of Mathematica

4.0 4 years ago

Comments: Overal really useful if you know how to use it and particularly strong at analytical calculus and symbolic equations. Otherwise the language is a little clunky. If more people used it, it would be more valuable.

Pros:

Mathematica is really great at solving symbolic math equations. Unrivaled in my opinion. Analytical solving is a breeze with this and it is intuitive how it all appears, as if you wrote it on a sheet of paper. That is its best feature. Otherwise it has a lot of really cool math functionality for analzying data. I particularly have used it for signal processing.

Cons:

Well it is like learning another programming language so you have to get over that barrier. It is hit or miss with other people who know how to read the software or even use it. The only reason I used it was because I found Wolfram Alpha online as an undergrad and when I became a grad student I found out the previous grad students used it. I'd say its programming language is a little clunky, compared to some competitors. And its not open software.

Wolfram solving your calculus headaches!

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: I used Wolfram frequently as a student in calculus courses. It has helped me complete homework assignments.

Pros:

The best features of Wolfram Alpha at the free level are the simple search bar for calculation. It was extremely useful in calculus 3 courses, mainly because it presents integrals and derivatives of equations. My favorite aspects is that it provides graphical representations of the equations, which is a visual learning tool.

Cons:

I have tried out using Wolfram for non-mathematic topics, including historical figures. The presentation style of these, including showing the "queries", is not preferable to a simple web engine search about the person you are looking for.

Wolfarm Mathematica.

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I like wolfarm mathematica for its powerful exceutional engine that makes it able to simulate or visualize data very well.

Pros:

Mathematica has a great graphics user interface, and it does a fantastic job. It also has a lot of other advantages. It has a huge array of codes and library, though complex but powerful. Mathematica is without a doubt one of the most powerful programmes we use and has a very large and active online society to help in problems.

Cons:

What I find difficult about it is its learning curve, as Wolfram is a large language that can take some time to understand and use comfortably. Apart from that, I have no complaints about Wolfram Mathematica because it meets all of my requirements.

Mathematica Pros and Cons

5.0 6 months ago

Comments: Generally good. Have used it since it was called SMP so familiar with most of it. However, even after 30 years I can still have trouble getting some of the tools to behave like I want them too - so expect a long learning curve.

Pros:

Useful in teaching vector calculus. Manipulatives help in showing how vectors and tensors change over time.

Cons:

1) Error messages are nearly worthless. 2) The canvas drawing tool works poorly and unpredictably - especially in the latest version. 3) The fact that [sensitive content hidden] feels the need to put the "Wolfram" signature on everything is arrogant at the very least - this is the one complaint that tempted me to switch to other, competing products. 4) Typesetting is still nowhere near what a good LaTeX engine can do. Major disappointment.
