Taking calculus? Then you need the Wolfram Calculus Course Assistant. This definitive app for calculus—from the world leader in math software—will help you work through your homework problems, ace your tests, and learn calculus concepts. Forget canned examples! The Wolfram Calculus Course Assistant solves your specific Calculus problems on the fly including step-by-step guidance for derivatives, integrals, and much more.

This app covers the following topics applicable to Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Calculus I, and Calculus II:

- Evaluate any numeric expression or substitute a value for a variable.
- Plot basic, parametric, or polar plots of the function(s) of your choice.
- Determine the limit of a function as it approaches a specific value.
- Differentiate any function or implicit function.
- Find the critical points and inflection points of a function.
- Identify the local and absolute extrema of a function.
- Integrate a function, with or without limits.
- Sum a function given a lower and upper bound.
- Find the closed form of a sequence or generate terms for a specific sequence.

The Wolfram Calculus Course Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.

The Wolfram Calculus Course Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

This app is a life saver.

Good but not an "island" app


I have always loved the power of WolframAlpha and I was excited to find out that I could get an app on my Iphone that would "do" integration, derivatives and other calculus functions. Then after paying for and downloading the app, I realized that you still need an internet connection to perform the calculations! This was very disappointed since the actual WolframAlpha internet site will do the same "stuff" and much more for free. If I always have an internet connection then why would anyone buy this app? It needs to be an "island" app that doesn't require interent connectivity to perform its calculations. I feel that Wolfram is mis-leading people by offering this app and requiring payment for it! I would mind paying for an "island" app that will "do" calculus functions. But this app is mis-leading and useless since you still need an internet connection.



This app is alright, however I must say it is extremely limited. Calculus is so much more. I'm in a college calculus class and this app realistically helps me out 3 times out of 10. On the next update increase capability. There is so much more that needs to be entered in on certain circumstances to get too the correct answer & this app only solves the basic minimum. It's really more for a pre calculus high school class. For those in a college level calculus class this app is not as extensive as it needs to be at all. Word to the developer: Pearson's math lab calculus class is what I was using this for. Many colleges are using this now. Study the calculus class on Pearson's "my mathlab" and design this app around it. Trust me it will benefit the developer and the student.
