The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a partnership with Wolfram Research to include Mathematica and the Wolfram language in future images of the Raspbian operating system. It’s intended that this will make the Pi a “first-class platform for teaching computer-based mathematics to children of all ages.”
Mathematica has applications in algebra, calculus, physical sciences, life sciences and even for creative artwork based on mathematical equations.
You can install both packages now by running:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine
The Foundation has created a discussion forum for the software which you can access here.
