Wolfram|Alpha in Action in the Classroom

November 16, 2009 —

When we first announced Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day, we were pleasantly surprised by the response from educators who were eager to share how they use Wolfram|Alpha with their students.

One of those educators was an inspiring fourth grade teacher named Shannon Smith.

Shannon integrates Wolfram|Alpha into all of the subject areas that she teaches, from spelling and language to geography, science, and math.

In this video, she shares examples of how she utilizes Wolfram|Alpha and describes the advantages that she and her students get from incorporating it into her lesson plans.

The lesson plan Shannon highlights in this video and many others are available in the Homework Day Submission Gallery.


Isn’t it weird that I’m only 15 years old, and I still think this is cool?

I have a netbook and it cannot display this video without stuttering. Please can it be made available as a download in a common video format such as avi or wmv.
