Mathematica is a highly ingenious, extremely precise and among others user-friendly programming language. From the standpoint of the human economic science, it is the most suitable for 1) complicated symbolic computation including vast amounts of terms, 2) analytical or numerical solutions of equations, differential equations or minimization calculation, 3) accurate and aesthetic visualization of graphs or figures. In this class, we provide practices using GSIC Educational System and Tsubame Grid Cluster to learn how to manipulate "Mathematica", which is necessary for the calculation of economics or cognitive psychology such as solution to equations, linear algebra (list, vector and matrix manipulation), statistics (Descriptive statistics, Regression, Anova), graphs and complex network, and simulation of complex systems.
