WolframAlpha <- click to return to main page

Hey guys! This is the page where I'm going to add information to keep y'all updated about what's going on! Be sure to check this page daily!

Hey guys! So a way to make sure we only use information once in our chapter, I have crossed off (using the scratch out function in edit mode) each research post I used that way y'all know which one of those I used and which I didn't. I also used other information from the about section of Wolfram|Alpha, so you might want to read other people's section to double check we aren't using the same information from the same source! We want our chapter to be as diverse as possible! :)

Here's a link to the Indiana Standards for your lesson plans:

Below you'll find the roles that each of us are responsible for. The primary role is the role you will be responsible for first and foremost, and the secondary role(s) are there so you know what else you're in charge of doing.

Each week I'd like to receive emails from you in order to stay up-to-date with what you have accomplished that week. That way you and I will be on the same page! This way, you are all in charge of yourselves and I am there as a motivator!

This is what needs to be accomplished this week [March 29 - April 4]:

- By Sunday, April 4th [Easter] we MUST have our first draft of our wiki completed.
- This means all sections need to be written, in a rough draft form, AS WELL AS all nine (9) lesson plans need to be drafted too!

With that said, I have given each of you a section and lesson plans to work on this week. The sections MUST be completed by Sunday [April 4th] at midnight!

-Jules:
-"History" section
-Secondary STEM lesson plan

-Victoria:
-"How Wolfram|Alpha Relates to other Applications" section
-Elementary lesson plan
-Secondary lesson plan

-Gabrielle:
-"Demonstration of Educational Value" section
-Elementary lesson plan
-Post-secondary lesson plan

-Andrea:
-"How Wolfram|Alpha is used Internationally" section
-Elementary STEM lesson plan
-Post-secondary lesson plan

-Tyler:
-"Real World Application" section - you DO NOT have to do all nine (9) lesson plans - I have divided those among us.
-Secondary lesson plan
-Post-secondary STEM lesson plan

REMEMBER: When doing your sections BE SURE TO DOCUMENT WHERE YOU FOUND THE INFORMATION FROM! It is VERY important that we DO NOT plagiarize! At the bottom, there is a reference section, so feel free to add the references there. AS WELL AS next to the information in the wiki. I'd rather have to clean that up later and make them into subscripts, than not knowing where the information came from. 

Be sure to continue to use Wolfram|Alpha so you know how to use the Web 2.0 application. Graduate students from ISU will be attending our presentation on April 19, 2010 and will be asking us questions! One of the questions that is ALWAYS asked to the EDCI 270 students is how you, personally, have used the application.

One last thing for now, here are some good examples of finished wikis that we can model ours after:

-Picnik
-Bubbl.us
-SurveyMonkey
-Delicious

Check those out to see how they formatted everything. AND MAKE SURE YOU PUT ALL OF YOUR WORK FROM NOW ON ON THE MAIN PAGE. DO NOT PUT THE WRITING ON THE RESEARCH PAGE OR THE INTRODUCTION PAGE! IT MUST GO ON THE MAIN PAGE.

If you have ANY questions, call me, text me, or email me, BUT DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!
