WOLFRAM|ALPHA NOW GOES ONE STEP AT A TIME

http://blog.wolframalpha.com/2012/09/26/introducing-expanded-step-by-step-math-solutions/

Wolfram|Alpha recently expanded the functionality of its
step-by-step solution feature.

The new interface lets you walk through all of W|A's
step-by-step solutions at your own pace, revealing only one
step at a time. For common math problems, the
Mathematica-powered computational knowledge engine even shows
multiple ways to find the solutions.

With this expansion, W|A also rolls out three new math content
areas that now feature step-by-step solutions:

- solving equations
- rational arithmetic
- verifying trigonometric identities
