Hello ECI832!

The feeling of reviewing a math app for a mathematics teacher is nothing but a treat and if such app has a potential to transform the old boring perception of a math class into an exciting experience is just like a cherry on the top. Wolfram algebra course assistant is a wonderful app which is devoted to helping students master the art of solving algebra problems, integration of such technology into the classroom helps math teachers to deliver the subject more efficiently where students can find n number of ways to solve a particular problem. I don’t think to define what this application does using words, does it justice. My video review below might give you a clear idea of what this application has to offer.

Terms of Services and Privacy Policy

Wolfram service specifies in their terms of services that if the user is under age 18 they may use Wolfram applications only if they have permission from a parent, legal guardian, or teacher. By using their service, the user acknowledges that they are over the age of 18 and legally able to form contracts or that an adult with authority to act on their behalf has agreed to these terms and to be accountable for ensuring your compliance with them in your use of the service. By putting input into Wolfram application in the form of a query, the users are not giving up any of the ownership or rights to the content. The Privacy policy further assures that as a service provider they comprehend the user’s apprehensions about how your information is used and shared, and they endeavor to use such information cautiously and sensibly.

The application or the website collects both personally identifiable data about the user and non-personally-identifiable data about the user’s experience when they access the Wolfram services. The personal data that they collect on their website or through their service consists of data that the user submits such as name, email address, and other personal information that the user willingly deliver. Since involvement in these actions is voluntary, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose such data. In addition to that, the application or the website collects non-personally recognizable data whenever the user interacts with the websites, including Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, geographical region, referral URLs, and other data automatically supplied by common web browsers. The service provider acknowledges that they may release personally identifying information only in the circumstances where they have to comply with lawful court orders. Overall, I believe that their privacy policy is straightforward and safe for young users.

 Wolfram algebra course assistant is a great educational application to integrate technology into the math classroom and make it fun and interesting experience. For now, I would love to hear your thoughts and concerns in the comments about using Wolfram algebra in the classroom and would you think about using it in your school?
