Class & Homework Help with Wolfram Alpha


I hope everyone is back in the teaching grove! This week’s #TechTipTuesday video showcases WolframAlpha. It is a phenomenal computational engine…different from Google and powerful. It has a use in all content areas and possibly as a tool to assist parents when they are helping their student with homework.

Items to consider while watching

  1. In what ways can WolframAlpha engage students with content?
  2. How can tools like this shift learning from computation to analysis?
  3. Consider ways a tool like WolframAlpha can assist students with compare and contrast tasks.
