  1. I think this is a great idea to use for middle school science! A couple questions:
    1. How do you actually use the wolframalpha website?
    2. What are you using to teach mass, volume, density?
    3. Thinking of creating a project where the students develop their own Pokemon, and all the data. Trying to figure out how students would be able to justify their data, I.e. If density is a certain figure, then their Pokemon would have to have a given weight, must have certain abilities, which type, weaknesses, etc. Should I provide worksheets in which they log this data and justifications prior to the final project template?
    4. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciates!
