Using Wolfram|Alpha in the Classroom

You can resolve many problems and calculations using it.
It takes some of your time to prepare your lessons but gives more and efficient results.
At the same time, it's more appealing for your students, to solve some problems in group.

Using Wolfram|Alpha in the Classroom

Wolfram|Alpha is a free online computational knowledge engine that generates answers to questions in real time by doing computations on its own vast internal knowledge base. Our long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. This can be valuable to educators in many ways.

Gather information on a general concept

Derivatives » | Maps » | Stars » | Animals »

More examples »

Research details on specific topics

sinx » | AAGCTAGCTAGC » | H2O » | USA »

Use it in lesson planning

Creative writing » | Algebra I » | Geography »

Create visual aids for presentations or
handouts, including images and graphs

Michael » | plot x^2+5 and x^3 »
tetrahedron » | chart US population »
buckyball 3D structure »

Show steps to math problems

solve 3x+4= 5x +7 » | derivative of cosx * sinx »
limit of x^2/(3-x) as x -> 0 »

For more ideas, see the Step-by-Step Math post on the Wolfram|Alpha Blog.

You can also use Wolfram|Alpha...

  • to assign homework based on information in Wolfram|Alpha
  • as a reference in computer labs and libraries
  • for research papers and group projects
