Calculus Interactive App Lite – Studying Calculus? Then download this app
Apr 19, 2013 12:58 PM –
Calculus Interactive App Lite is an ideal application for calculus students. Whether you study pure maths, engineering or other such disciplines, this is a sound and beautifully developed educational app. It offers impressive tutorials that explain basic concepts, interactive activities to help embed ideas and even sample questions to test yourself with.
Price: Free, $0.99
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Lots of content!
- Visually imagined concepts that are ‘easy’ to comprehend!
- Covers a variety of topics and concepts!
- Test questions!
- Screen presses are occasionally unresponsive.
- No useful back button.
Now, I’m not going to pretend for a minute that I somehow ‘know’ calculus. I get a strong understanding of what it is, but I’m not a mathematician by any stretch of the imagination. That said, it’s pretty clear from the design of the app that students of calculus will really like this. It’s beautifully designed and chock full of mini interactive videos and animations to explain various concepts. Instead therefore, of looking at lines of complex equations, the app is able to demonstrate the concepts in a more visual way.
The app includes a number of areas of calculus. These include: differentiation, applications of differentiation and differential functions. Then you have integration, applications of integration and techniques of integration. Each of these involves a number of subheadings under which other aspects of each theory are explored. Some access is currently limited until the full version is released but you will quickly get the idea of what kind of resource this is.
The app is designed contemporarily and full of slick animations, music and interactive diagrams which demonstrate each theory, in a nutshell it looks great. If you’ve watched any slickly designed technology intro vid in the past three years, this is just as good. This all makes it a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable app to play about with and use. I found myself trying different videos, despite knowing next to nothing about calculus. It’s just a fun and engaging environment.

If you’re learning calculus, or perhaps just need access to certain concepts explained in simple terms, this is definitely an app to check out. That said, it is clearly very niche and isn’t going to be for most.
Ease of Use:
The app is pretty easy to use and navigation is very simple. I did find certain tabs were ineffective- most annoyingly the return to Menu button seemingly refuses to work. The app could use some navigational tweaks to make it a little more user-friendly and responsive but this aside the app is great and certainly easy to use (assuming you have a basic working knowledge of calculus already!)
This will depend very much on the individual user, but there is plenty of content here and on its way.
The interface is excellent, beautifully designed and extremely polished. There are one or two glitches as I mentioned earlier but this aside, the app interface is genuinely great.
