This site is the mathematics area of the larger Wolfram Alpha project – described as a computational knowledge engine to make the world’s knowledge computable. In response to natural language questions it provides direct answers, explanations, related information and comparisons. In addition to mathematics the main site offers, for example, chemistry, engineering, places and geography, money and finance. Mathematica is used as the underlying software engine.From the point of view of mathematics education it poses advantages and disadvantages in the way of most technology – but the free availability of a powerful mathematical tool opens up vast new possibilities for students and teachers to explore. For the professional mathematician it’s not clear if it solves anything that their stand alone version of Mathematica could not.

U.S. Census data has been made more accessible and easier to read, combining features of both charts and tables in a way that highlights differences in data for different locations. In addition to numbers, table cells include colored bars whose length is proportional to the number. This makes it easy to see differences in the numbers.
