Experimenting with equations and their graphs using the iPad and Wolfram Alpha

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using an iPad and the Wolfram Alpha app, high school students can easily make changes to equations that can lead to a deeper understanding of mathematics and to results that are astonishing. For example, simple changes can be made to equations of lines that result in graphs of circles and then to curves that are unusual and mysterious. This experimentation provides students with the opportunity to make connections between different mathematical topics and to make their own discoveries.
