Attention Teachers and Educators—Good News!

Engagement, exploration, discovery—these are the staples of good education. Giving students the freedom to be curious and the tools to satisfy that curiosity helps develop independent thinkers and confident problem-solvers.
With the Demonstrations Project, students can visualize, manipulate, and explore the very principles that are being taught in the classroom. Teachers can enrich their lesson plans with cutting-edge and engaging content by exploring the Demonstrations database by grade level and Common Core Standard.
The Wolfram Demonstrations Project offers thousands of interactive examples in subjects ranging from math to political science to art. All you have to do is download the free Wolfram CDF Player, and the entire Demonstrations database is at your fingertips. Need an interactive number line for teaching absolute value? Or maybe a graph manipulator that lets you illustrate the properties of asymptotes? Got ‘em!
And you can rest assured that the information is high quality. Each Demonstration undergoes a thorough review process by field experts to ensure its content is accurate, appropriate, and clear.
Wolfram is creating the technology for the future of education. More than ever, we are making ideas tangible that previously could not be easily illustrated or described. We are developing new analogies, new ways of thinking—and we can connect with more students with whom traditional ways of teaching may not resonate.
So what are you waiting for? Go explore and see for yourself!
