Wolfram Online Integrator

Zzz

"The world's only full-power integration solver."

Because you never know when you'll need to to solve an integral function.

OK, Kay - guess my primary field of employment.....

I *LIVE* by Wolfram Alpha these days...it can pull up comparative statistics needed for grants, it can do growth charts -- if I need to know how an disease epidemic has grown throughout parts of the world, I can just ask it and it will give me what I need -- without pulling in raw data into Excel and doing all the geeky work myself.

Retaking Algebra last year (after 20 years...I do advanced stats and modeling! I haven't had to do this by hand in YEARS!) I got a LOT of use out of Wolfram's iPad app...its just like the website but more concise and easy to use.

Do the equation by hand...throw it into Wolfram Alpha. See if the results are the same. Saved my a** on a few exams where I got different results than the prof (which happens when you are dealing with basic math and just told to 'factor this'...sometimes it might get factored different ways depending on the method or the ultimate end point...most of this was looking for an intermediate endpoint).

I can't say enough good things about their products if you have any sort of scientific or mathematical bent. Just bought the Calc Course assistant yesterday...and still don't know calc, but its better than having to go to a website!

I have a feeling the Moleman wouldn't have any need for this level of nerdery at this point, but us dumb guys? Yeah...20 years ago was bad enough...if you learned this almost 40 years ago and still know it...thats awesome!

Because "it is written."

How did I know that Kay was eventually going to comment on another comment and,

if I commented on a comment about a comment, Joe S. would comment on me.

How did I know that 6.02(etc.) would have made the comment?

37 years too late to save me from my Calc I Prof. He kept saying "arfa" and "hypotaneus" and I decided that I'd have t teach myself.

The translation: arfa= angle of alpha. hypotaneus = hypotenuse. Now, about that differential equation solver...
