Derek Bruff and others have started this collaborative site to
record how secondary and undergraduate math educators use
Wolfram|Alpha, or Walpha as it's called here, in the classroom.
In particular, the authors are interested in how students might
use Walpha themselves, as well as how teachers might use Walpha
as an instructional tool.
If you're interested in contributing, request to join the site.
You can also talk about Walpha in education on the site's Forum,
and comment on particular pages by clicking on the "discussion"
link at the bottom of each page.
"The fan's electronic baseball card," UberFan.com compares
statistics from the events you see side-by-side with all that
team or player's official MLB stats. UberFan.com will show you
differences between the stats you've witnessed and the stats
you haven't--is your favorite pitcher really on his game on the
nights you're watching? Or is his ERA for games you haven't
seen even lower? Create a free account; identify the ballgames
you watch at the ballpark, on TV, or over the Internet, or
listen to on the radio; and then view and filter the stats
related to those games, automatically tracked in your
