It’s been an exciting afternoon here at the first-ever Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day—and the day is just getting started. We will be broadcasting live from the Homework Day website until 2am U.S. CDT. Our host, University of Illinois and University of Syracuse Adjunct Professor Eric Hansen, kicked the show off with a live interview with Wolfram|Alpha creator Stephen Wolfram.
Shannon Smith and her mother Nancy Brachbill, the teachers behind Recess TEC, joined us for live demonstrations and interviews about how they are using Wolfram|Alpha in their 4th- and 5th-grade classrooms. Learn more about Nancy and Shannon in our earlier blog post.
We’ve also had the opportunity to interact with students, educators, and parents at the Dell-sponsored Internet Cafe:
Tune in during the 5–10pm slot to see members of the Wolfram|Alpha team take on your toughest math questions, a Skype interview with author Lawrence M. Krauss, a live interview with actor and education enthusiast Richard Dreyfuss, and much more. There is still time to showcase your homework examples and submit your questions for the Wolfram|Alpha team.
Stay tuned for more live updates from Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day.
