Starting Mathematica CalcCenter
Once you have installed your copy, you are ready to run Mathematica CalcCenter. The first time you start Mathematica CalcCenter you will need to enter a password.1. On Windows: Click Start, point to All Programs, and choose Mathematica CalcCenter from the Mathematica CalcCenter program group.
On Macintosh: Double-click the Mathematica CalcCenter icon. If you have placed it in the Dock, you can single-click to launch from there.2. Here is your screen after startup.
The control area takes up the left side of the screen.
When you first launch Mathematica CalcCenter, the Welcome controller appears in the control area.
The menus along the top of the screen organize common mathematical operations by topic.
On the right is a new notebook--a workspace for entering input and seeing the results of your calculations.
Click Start Slide Show on the Welcome controller to get an overview of Mathematica CalcCenter's features.
Each panel of the slide show contains text and graphics highlighting a different aspect of Mathematica CalcCenter. Click the forward or back arrow to move to the next or previous slide.3. Click Home Controller to start using Mathematica CalcCenter. The Welcome controller disappears and is replaced by the Home controller.
