Wolfram Language
Liz: Here’s another space-themed post from our friends at Wolfram Research, showing how the Wolfram Language can be used to visualize solar eclipses total and partial, past and present, and as seen from Earth, Mars and Jupiter. ____ You may have heard that on March 20 there was a solar eclipse. Depending on where you... Continue reading
If you ever want to get back at your sibling for some minor wrongdoing, there is no better way than to borrow all of their “Where’s Wally”** books and use a big red marker pen to give him speech bubbles shouting, “Here I am! Over here!” On every single page. But be prepared for war. (**He might be called “Waldo” where you... Continue reading
Liz: For us, one of the most powerful features of the Wolfram Language is the way it understands real-world (or, in this case, real-solar-system) objects, making it easy to incorporate data on all kinds of things into your projects. In this rather lovely instance from the good people at Wolfram, you can calculate and visualise... Continue reading
Liz: Here’s a guest post from Bernat at Wolfram, who has been putting the Wolfram Language on the Pi to work at a Smart Cities Hackathon in Barcelona. If you haven’t used the Wolfram Language before, this is a nice little glimpse into what it’s capable of: enjoy! ____ On Friday, February 20, I had the pleasure... Continue reading
Eben: Here’s a guest post from Tom Sherlock, describing how he’s been able to control a telescope using a Raspberry Pi, Mathematica and the Wolfram Language. As an amateur astronomer, I’m always interested in ways to use Mathematica in my hobby. In earlier blog posts, I’ve written about how Mathematica can be used to process... Continue reading
Liz: If you use Raspbian, you’ll have noticed that Mathematica and the Wolfram Language come bundled for free with your Raspberry Pi. (A little boast here: we were only the second computer ever on which Mathematica has been included for free use as standard. The first? Steve Jobs’s NeXT, back in 1988.)  Earlier in July, Wolfram Research announced a big... Continue reading
Here’s another guest post from Allison at Wolfram Research. Today we’re looking at how to interface external sensors from Vernier Software & Technology to the Pi using the Wolfram Language. Even though we only released the Wolfram Language on the Raspberry Pi a few months ago, Bob LeSuer is already a power user. He’s an... Continue reading
Here’s another guest post from Allison Taylor at Wolfram, which is part of a series that will help smooth your introduction to Mathematica. Thanks Allison: over to you! At our 2010 and 2011 Wolfram Technology Conferences, attendees were challenged to come up with their best one-liners—pieces of code written in less than one line, or... Continue reading
Have you been staring at the Mathematica and Wolfram Language icons on your Raspbian install, and wondering where to get started? We’ll be featuring several guest posts from Wolfram Research in the coming weeks, so you can start to get to work with them. This first, introductory post is from Arnoud Buzing. Arnoud and the...

One of the best things about working on Raspberry Pi has been the opportunity to meet groups of people who are trying to bring about the same sort of change in the teaching of other subjects that we’re aiming for in computing. One great example is the computer-based math(s) (CBM) movement, which aims to redefine... Continue reading
