What is
Mathematica:  “At a superficial level, Mathematica is an amazing, yet easy-to-use calculator. The world's most comprehensive set of mathematical, scientific, engineering, and financial functions is ready-to-use--often with just one mouse click or command. However, Mathematica functions work for any size or precision of number, compute with symbols, are easily represented graphically, automatically switch algorithms to get the best answer, and even check and adjust the accuracy of their own results. This sophistication means trustworthy answers every time, even for those inexperienced with the mechanics of a particular calculation.”

Mathematica has changed the "Home Use" process and procedures from prior years to help faculty, staff, and students obtain a home use version of their software directly from them at Wolfram Research.

Users of products that require a password instead of an activation key should follow the directions in-product to obtain a new password through our Product Registration and Information Updates page:

Employees with home-use licenses will be sent an email from Wolfram with instructions to extend their licenses.

Existing users whose activation keys are marked as "auto renew" will not need to do anything. Their activation keys will be automatically extended through your next renewal date. Users whose activation keys are not automatically extended will be sent an email with instructions for requesting a new activation key.

If you experience any problems or have any questions about obtaining a home use version please feel free to contact one of our Wolfram/Mathemtica contacts below:
