  • The structure of Mathematica expressions and ways to manipulate them,
  • functions defined using underscores and pure (or anonymous) functions
  • functions that have functions as arguments, such as Select, Gatherby
  • associations
  • pattern matching and the function Cases, sequences
  • how to define a function on a given domain only, with optional arguments, etc
  • options
