PrimaryMath Primary Mathematics package Read Me file
----------------------------------------------------
Notes
-----
The PrimaryMath package assumes that the standard Mathematica Help documentation is
already installed. Also it assumes that Mathematica's Standard Packages have
been installed.
It makes frequent use of the Graphics`Colors` and Utilities`FilterOptions` packages.
Installation:
-------------
1) The accompanying PrimaryMath folder/directory should be extracted (unzipped)
and placed in the AddOns/Applications folder of your Mathematica installation.
When this is done the locations of the .m program
files should be recognised by Mathematica.
(For example on a PC installation, the full path of the AddOns/Applications folder
might be:
C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.0\AddOns\Applications
Then after correct installation, the full path of the PrimaryMath folder would be
C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.0\AddOns\Applications\PrimaryMath
)
2) Then the help index should be rebuilt. - Start up Mathematica, and press
"Rebuild Help Index" in the help menu. When this is done, Mathematica will
recognise the help notebooks which accompany the package. They will
be accessible under the "Primary Maths" entry of the AddOns section of the
Help Browser.
Starting to use the application
-------------------------------
After installing the application, open up the Help Browser, click the Add-ons button
and choose "Introductory Messages" in the "Primary Maths" menu.
The "Introductory Messages" item gives information on the application,
the format and purpose of the notebooks, and how they can be used.
Having read "Introductory Messages", explore the other menu items within
"Primary Maths" to look through the notebooks.
