Mathcad Prime 2.0 Essentials


Course Code: TRN-3431
Course Length: 2 Days


MathcadIn this course, you will learn the basics Mathcad Prime. You will learn about Mathcad Prime’s extensive functionality such as opening and working with Mathcad files, navigating workspaces, defining variables and expressions, and solving equations. Further, you will learn how to plot graphs, solving for roots and manipulating data. At the end of each module, you will find a set of review questions to reinforce critical topics from that module. Your instructor will discuss these with the class.

At the end of the course, you will find a course assessment in Pro/FICIENCY intended to evaluate your understanding of the course as a whole.
