Join us on Wednesday, October 21, 2009, at noon CDT, for the start of  Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day, a groundbreaking marathon live interactive web event that brings together students, parents, and educators from across the United States to solve their toughest assignments and explore the power of using Wolfram|Alpha for school, college, and beyond.

The multi-hour event will be broadcast live on our new Homework Day website. You can interact with Wolfram|Alpha team members and other Homework Day participants via Homework Day chat, Facebook, and Twitter.

During Homework Day, scholars, experts, and members of the Wolfram|Alpha team will explore a wide variety of subjects relevant for K–12 to college students. Segments throughout the day will be tailored for specific age groups and show how students and teachers are already using Wolfram|Alpha in the classroom (stay tuned for a detailed schedule). You’ll also want to see the special guests who will be joining us!

From now through the end of Homework Day, all are invited to submit their homework questions to be answered by members of the Wolfram Research team, and to upload their examples (videos, screencasts, images, etc.) showcasing how they’ve already been using Wolfram|Alpha to bring their homework to life.

We know that educators will be especially interested in hearing from fellow teachers who are already using Wolfram|Alpha in their lesson plans, activities, and more.

Parents won’t want to miss this opportunity to see how other parents are using Wolfram|Alpha to help their kids learn more. Already using Wolfram|Alpha at home? Share your examples, too!

But don’t wait until October 21—visit the Homework Day website today to find out how you can be a part of the webcast by submitting your questions, videos, lesson plans, and more.


Congratulation guys.

We see us.

I suggest an edited list of inputs used in connection with this event be placed on a web page. I am assuming most will be one line so it will be a compact list containing enormous variety of inputs providing valuable examples.

A fabulous idea – but October 21 is a Wednesday. Most K-12 teachers and students will be busy with classes.

This is such a great idea! More educators and teachers should put together an event like this. I can imagine it had a lasting impact for the students.
