Analytica in the Classroom - A Teaching tool
The Analytica in the Classroom program lets teachers and students use Analytica free of charge as part of a class in an accredited college or university. Professors find Analytica an ideal tool for teaching the art and science of modeling -- because its influence diagrams and Intelligent Arrays encourage users to think at a higher conceptual level without getting bogged down in the mechanics of spreadsheet cells.
Under this program, teachers and students can use Analytica Professional free as part of a scheduled class for the duration of that class (plus a few weeks before and after). We ask in return that you give us feedback on how you used Analytica, and share any relevant curriculum, exercises, or tips that might be useful for other classes.
Note, if you want to use Analytica for educational or research at a school, college, or university, but outside a particular class, or want another edition of Analytica, you can order them at our low educational prices.
