If your child or student is struggling with simple, or even advanced, mathematical steps then consider introducing them to the services offered by Wolfram|Alpha. Wolfram|Alpha is not only a great tool for those who struggle with math, but also for those who have difficulties in math because of dyslexia or other learning disabilities.

Wolfram|Alpha is an online knowledge engine that can double check your child’s math at a click of the mouse. The engine’s collection of data, algorithms, and methods to solving problems aims to compute any problem or equation given. It even provides graphs and visuals to explain a concept or method. Wolfram|Alpha’s website offers free services to all, but you can also purchase Wolfram|Alpha Pro with a monthly or annual plan to customize your experience with Wolfram|Alpha and get richer results.

Wolfram|Alpha has also developed a line of apps so your student or child can double check their math homework right off their phone or tablet. The original app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, NOOK, and the Kindle Fire for $0.99. There is also a collection of course assistant apps from Wolfram|Alpha that provide additional knowledge and aid for a wide range of subjects, from pre-algebra to calculus.
