Use Cases Overview
Wolfram Alpha is called a “computational knowledge engine” that supplies curated structured data via web search or API and supplies the data licensed to Apple behind its Siri product.
STEP ONE: Get Acquainted with Wolfram Alpha
Publisher: Wolfram Alpha LLC
URL: (The exact URL for your query string)
Retrieval date: (The date that you performed your query)
A sample citation would be:
Wolfram Alpha LLC. 2016. Wolfram|Alpha. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2%2B2 (access June 10, 2016).
See the Purdue OWL page on citing electronic sources for further APA and MLA guidance about citing data.
(Note: MLA no longer requires the use of URLs in MLA citations.)
See this WolframAlpha FAQ for further information about the sources and peer-reviewed status of the WolframAlpha data.
Mathematica is a symbolic computation platform that is used across many engineering fields for data processing and visualizations among other things. It employs high-level commands that more closely resemble scripting than conventional programming. The publicly available "lite" version, Wolfram CDF Player, is provided for running Mathematica programs and interactive visualizations that have been saved in the Computable Document Format (CDF). See elsewhere on this page for details on how to get the full Drexel site-licensed "author-ware" version of Mathematica for coding original work.
