## Areas of Use for web*Mathematica*

There are several areas of use for web*Mathematica*. Some of these include web computation, education, publishing, research, and hobbyist calculations.

### Web Computation

A major use of web*Mathematica* is to build online tools for computation and visualization. An example is web*Unrisk*, http://library.wolfram.com/explorations/webUnrisk/index.html; some examples of web*Unrisk* are shown below.

### Education

*Mathematica* is widely used in many areas of education. These applications can be extended to web-based education tools with web*Mathematica*. *The Integrator*, http://integrals.wolfram.com, is a Wolfram Research-developed website that solves integration problems. Another use of web*Mathematica* in education is Calc101, http://www.calc101.com, which mixes free and pay-per-use calculators that lead precollege and college students through integration and differentiation problems.

### Publishing

Many publishers are developing web-based supplements to textbooks, manuals, and journals. web*Mathematica* provides a suitable technology to support these efforts in technical subjects. An example web-based supplement, built with web*Mathematica*, is available at http://www.wolfram.com/products/webmathematica/examples/examples.html, as shown in the following.

### Research

Researchers all over the world use *Mathematica* to investigate their fields of interest and develop techniques and algorithms for solving problems. All the *Mathematica* work they develop can now be delivered with live interactive websites, vastly increasing the number of people who can use and learn from their results. A typical website that plots surfaces of constant curvature is http://library.wolfram.com/webMathematica/Mathematics/ConstantCurvature.jsp.

### Hobbyist

web*Mathematica* allows individual users to showcase their personal interests with web-based interactive calculations and visualizations. AnalyticCycling.com, http://www.analyticcycling.com/, provides a recreational website that takes advantage of the web*Mathematica* engine. Designed for technically oriented cyclists, AnalyticCycling.com offers web-based calculators that take a no-compromise, textbook approach to computing cycling performance.
