Wolfram Alpha –

Wolfram|Alpha introduces a fundamentally new way to get knowledge and answers—
not by searching the web, but by doing dynamic computations based on a vast collection of built-in data, algorithms, and methods.

Desmos –

Desmos wants to help every student learn math and love learning math. But “every student” is a lot of students so we create digital math tools and let the Internet take them to anyone who wants them.

We built the best-in-class HTML5 Desmos graphing calculator, which millions of students around the world use for free. That calculator catches stellar reviews in app stores and from happy users on Twitter. We also create activities on top of that calculator, helping students use a powerful tool to experience all the curiosity, beauty, and sense that math has to offer. Those activities were used so often by so many teachers around the world that we decided to create an Activity Builder, helping every teacher create digital math activities that equal and exceed the activities we create ourselves.

Immerse yourself in the mathematics…

In my opinion, this really emphasises the idea that mathematics can be a rich and challenging subject. It should encourage and motivate students to explore mathematics beyond basic memorisation and repetitive exam style preparation techniques. Nrich provides students with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a topic and develop their problem solving skills.
