Wolfram Education Portal (Beta)

Teachers, are you looking for a new way to integrate technology into your classroom? How about through a dynamic textbook or pre-generated lesson plans? Students, are you looking for some extra help or practice in your classes? How about using interactive demonstrations and widgets to help understand the concepts you are learning? The Wolfram Education Portal is the answer for students and teachers alike!

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). Please take a minute to check out the education portal in its beta phase and let us know how we can make it better suit your needs.

Very exciting news indeed! The fact that Wolfram chose CK12 to partner with, makes it even more amazing. I’m sure Wolfram’s technological expertise combined with CK12′s brilliant resources and edtech experience will ensure that their Algebra 1 resource is all that it’s aimed to be- simple, flexible, interactive and well, brilliant!

This is great for students to refer Wolfram Education Portal instead of searching on net randomly.
