Wolfram Education Group (WEG) recently introduced a series of free, hour-long online seminars for anyone interested in learning more about Mathematica. The first offering, taught live by a senior WEG instructor, provides a complete, interactive overview of Mathematica's major technologies. Future seminars may offer more focused training on specific Mathematica applications and technologies. For more information, go to www.wolfram.com/news/freeonlineseminars.html.

Mathematica Earns Top Honors for High-Precision Arithmetic
Wolfram Research cemented its position as the leader in the field of high-precision arithmetic with a first-place finish in the More Digits Friendly Competition during the recent 7th Conference on Real Numbers and Computers. The Wolfram team, using Mathematica as its computing package, was the only team to answer each problem, the only team with all problems answered correctly, and the fastest team overall--finishing all 32 problems in less than three minutes. For more information, go to www.wolfram.com/news/moredigits.html.

Top Intel ISEF Students Take Home Mathematica
Nearly 1500 of the world's most talented high school science students recently competed at the 2006 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), where each first-place category winner was awarded a copy of Mathematica 5.2. Many had already incorporated Mathematica into their research, using it at their local high schools and colleges on their way to earning a place at the prestigious ISEF finals.
