WolframAlfa: The Computational Knowledge System

Posted in Academic Communities, Faculty, General News, Library Research, Library Services, Sciences, Students, and Tutoring, Tutorials & Tips

If you have not had a chance to check out WolframAlfa, now is the time. It is difficult to describe exactly what WolframAlfa does and who knows how it works. Here are just a few examples of what you can do to solve calculus problems, compare stock prices, calculate payments, calculate air foil performance, do life expectancy comparisons, and much more. This is one of the most amazing web services ever launched. I really can’t even begin to describe the power of this amazing tool. Take a look at the video, try some searches, and let us know if you come up with something interesting.
