Wolfram Alpha, which has been serving users with its computational knowledge engine for the last five years has now released Maths Course Assistant Apps for all Windows and Windows Phone devices. The apps include the courses like – Algebra, Calculus, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Precalculus and Statistics.
Maths Course Assistant Apps
These apps are very useful and helpful for the high school and college students. All of these apps named as course assistants are created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world’s leading software system for mathematical research and education. Launched in May 2009, Wolfram Alpha is based on Mathematica, a computational toolkit which includes the mathematics topics like computer algebra, statistics capabilities and symbolic and numerical computation.
Here is a description of all the apps for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
Pre-Algebra Course Assistant
Pre-Algebra problems usually are difficult to understand and solve initially, but this special course assistant makes them easy. There are step-by-step guidance for the problems like calculating the GCD or LCM, prime factorization, determining percent change, and computing the mean, median, and mode of a dataset. You can easily simply the expressions and equations and even plot the equations on the coordinate plane with the help of this affordable course assistant. It also helps understanding the graph inequalities and other geometrical problems like finding the midpoint, slope or calculating the surface area etc. Get this app for just $1.99.
Algebra Course Assistant
This app will help you learning the algebra concepts easily and solve your algebra problems quickly. It includes the step—by-step working of the algebra problems and covers the problems based on simple fractions, square roots, simple equations, equations of variables, polynomial problems and more. It helps solving problems of Algebra I, Algebra II and College Algebra. The app is available at $1.99.
Linear Algebra Course Assistant
Solving an equation or a system of equations will be easy with this conceptualized course assistant. The app also includes the detailed step-by-step guidance for the topics like dimensions, transpose, inverse, reduced row echelon form of a matrix, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix and much more. Matrix multiplications and subtractions also become easy with this course assistant. The app is available for $4.99.
Pre-Calculus Course Assistant
Learning Calculus for the first time requires proper attention and guidance, this pre-calculus course assistant from Wolfram Alpha can be helpful. It makes you acquaint with the common problems of calculus like vector arithmetic, equations, and statistics etc. It helps you understand and solve the problems like calculating the dot/cross product, finding partial fraction, and magnitude of two vectors. It also includes the detailed guide on geometrical problems like identifying sine, cosine and tangent of an angle. Calculating combinations and permutations also become easy with this course assistant. It is available at a very reasonable price of $1.99.
Calculus Course Assistant
The Calculus course assistant from Wolfram Alpha covers the common topics like Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Calculus I, and Calculus II. It helps students solving the calculus problems like numeric expressions, finding the inflection points of a function, integrate a function, finding the closed form of a sequence and many more. The Calculus Course Assistant is available at $ 2.99.
Multivariable Calculus Course Assistant
If you find the Plot 2D or 3D functions and multivariable calculus concept difficult, this course assistant may help you. It helps you solving all your multivariable calculus problems with detailed step-by-step guidance. It covers the important topics like Advanced Calculus and Vector Calculus too. The comprehensive guidance helps you calculating the gradient of a function, identifying local extrema of a function and covers the important Vector Calculus topics like determining the cross product of two vectors and calculating the divergence of a vector field. The app is available at $4.99.
Statistics Course Assistant
This Wolfram Alpha maths course assistant brings descriptive guidance for statistics problems like creating a histogram/bar chart or finding the mean, median and interquartile range of a dataset etc. It also explains the binomial probabilities and distribution. This informative statistics course assistant is available at Windows Store and Windows Phone Store at just $1.99.
