HOMEWORK DAY AT WOLFRAM ALPHA

wolfram alpha“Homework Day” at WolframAlpha.com is a natural, because the Wolfram web is a kind of super Google. It’s a search engine that gives you answers instead of data.  Instead of typing “math” in the search box, for example, you can put in a math problem and get an answer.

On “Homework Day,” October 21,  there will be a live webcast with live chat so that participants can submit questions and watch Stephen Wolfram and his team solve them. That’s important  because part of the problem at wolframalpha.com is knowing how to frame your question.  If you don’t frame it right, you’ll confuse the search engine.

Wolfram will also be showing off step-by-step lessons on how to use a new site, homeworkday.wolframalpha.com, in a variety of subjects,  including math, science, engineering, health and nutrition, English, history, and economics.

There will also be  live interviews and demonstrations by educators who are already using Wolfram|Alpha in their classrooms.
