Quick Post about Wolfram Alpha and Back to School Activity

I received this in my Diigo groups update and wanted to share a quick idea:

http://blog.wolframalpha.com/2010/08/05/10-fun-questions-kids-can-answer-with-wolframalpha/

Taking just a few of these questions, create a get to know you activity for the students. Use WolframAlpha to answer the following questions:

1. What are your two favorite colors? What color do you get when they are mixed? (use "mix red and blue" in Wolfram Alpha as your search)

2. Type in your birthday and research.

3. Type in your name and research.

4. Type in "growth chart, age and height" and see how tall you will be!

5. Type in "words that rhyme with...your name, your nickname, this class!

  1. What a fun idea Lisa! I love using a search engine as a getting to know you activity.
