New Resource For Educators and Students: Beta Version of the Wolfram Education Portal Now Online

Posted on January 19, 2012 by


From the Wolfram|Alpha Blog:

We are happy to announce the launch of the free Beta version of the Wolfram Education Portal. The portal comes equipped with a dynamic and interactive textbook, lesson plans aligned to the common core standards, and many other supplemental materials for your courses, including Wolfram Demonstrations, widgets, and videos. The Education Portal currently contains full materials for Algebra and partial materials for Calculus, but will continue to grow and improve with your comments and feedback.

We developed the interactive textbook by working with the CK-12 Foundation, a non-profit organization with the mission to produce free and open source K-12 materials aligned to state curriculum standards and customized to meet student and teacher needs. The available Algebra textbook takes CK-12’s Algebra I FlexBook and makes it dynamic with our technologies.

In the future we hope to add many cool and exciting features for teachers and students to explore, including community features, problem generators, web-based course apps, and the ability to create your very own personalized content!

The Wolfram Education Portal was built with the technology from Mathematica, and Wolfram|Alpha, and the Computable Document Format (CDF).
