Another term ends, and I wanted to say a few last words about how I want to use these tools going forward. First of all, learning is a lifelong process, and after the course is finished, I have plans to keep learning and practicing Mathematica. As I begin real work with real data to solve historical questions, I think that some of the theoretical power can come to real use.
I also want to increase my theoretical knowledge of what's going on here. I have textbooks on linear algebra, pre-calculus, information retrieval, and Mathematica ready to go deeper. It's gonna be a fun run.
