Today’s tip is one for parents to use as the ultimate computational homework helper.

We’ve discussed Wolfram Alpha in the past, but we didn’t explain how to unleash the full potential that the tool offers.

It’s not a search engine, it’s more of a computational knowledge tool and it’s a great way for parents to have a handle of complex math homework.

Wolfram Alpha provides a fundamentally different way to get knowledge & answers. It doesn’t search the web; it performs dynamic computations based on a huge collection of data & algorithms. 

Any student that’s struggling with complex math homework you can use Wolfram Alpha to both double check their work and get a better understanding of how they should have arrived at their answer. 

You can also use the tool to compare things, such as people or places. For example, you can compare Albert Einstein to Thomas Edison or Honeydew to Watermelon.

So the next time you need computational data to research something, let Wolfram Alpha be your tool of choice:
