Archimedes is a better way to do math. Calculate, solve and simplify, all displayed crisply & cleanly the way you'd write it on paper.

Calculate quickly, with the answer appearing as you type. Just swipe to switch between numeric and exact answers.

Solve equations: linear, quadratic, and others. Put in several equations with the same variables and you get the values for each.

Simplify roots, trigonometric functions, and fractions. Check all those tricks and rules you’re never quite sure about.

And most importantly, do it all without special functions, menus or commands. Just type and it does what you want.

What's New in Version 1.1.5

A minor update for some bug fixes and small feature requests.

• Several number formatting enhancements
• Input behavior tweaks
• Fixed bug that stopped background audio when using app
• Fixed bugs related to trigonometric functions
• Several other bug fixes and small updates

Agreed with Kevin above

I help my son with his 7th grade honors math and a equation like this one
15x - 8 - 3x = 16
Returns result x=2

Which is right but....

Wouldn't it just be freaking awesome if your app showed the work!
Like each step to get to x=2

Your app is the best I've found but if you could include this it would throw your app over the top!
Please at least respond. I wouldn't even mind paying more money for a feature like this! And apple should take note from your app!

Best calculator out there

Great app! Blows away the default calculator! Designed minimally and beautifully! I'm an engineering student and this app is extremely useful for performing basic arithmetic with some useful functionality like keeping a history and the way the app handles input makes it easy to follow the order of operations, minimizing errors!

It can be a lot better

The concept is great people and it works well, but you have an Oppurtunity to make this a real companion to college students. The reason I really bought this was to be able to check my work. I was upset that it didn't show any steps. I would really like to see if I'm doing the work correctly. So plz add a step feature. Second add better instructions for the app, I want to know all my features and settings. Other then that it's ok but no real use if you don't know how you get an answer.
