[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - CheongShim International Education Research Institute today is pleased to introduce AP Calculus 1.0 for iOS, their new Education app that enables users to efficiently prepare for both the Calculus AB and BC exams. Featuring vector graphics for sharp display on all iDevices, the app provides a systematic review of AP Calculus using brief definitions and axioms, color graphs, and succinct summaries. In addition to the Study Section, an Information Section covers Famous Math Majors and the Best Mathematics Universities.
Whether the Advanced Placement exam is a week, a month, or a year away, all students will benefit from AP Calculus. The logical ordering of basic concepts provides a foundation on which students can base their personal comprehension and mastery of Calculus, the study of change. Most Topics are covered in a single page, and none require the user to scroll up more than one screen. A bookmark function provides soon-to-be college freshmen with quick, random access to any Topic.
The Study Section includes two parts: Calculus AB and Calculus BC. The first includes six Chapters: 1) Functions, Graphs, and Limits; 2) Derivatives; 3) Applications of Derivatives; 4) Integrals; 5) Applications of Integrals; and 6) Differential Equations. The second Study Section, Calculus BC, includes eight Chapters: 7) Functions, Graphs, and Limits; 8) Derivatives; 9) Applications of Derivatives; 10) Integrals; 11) Applications of Integrals; 12) Differential Equations; 13) Polar Curves; and 14) Infinite Sequences and Series.
Each Chapter contains three to eight Sub-Chapters, and each contains a number of Topic pages containing formulas and definitions. For example, in the Chapter Functions, Graphs, and Limits from Calculus AB there are three Sub-Chapters, Functions, Limits, and Continuity. Functions contains 15 Topics, Limits has 8 Topics, and Continuity includes 7 Topics. The 15 Topic pages in Functions are: Definition of a Function, Graph of a Function, Vertical Line Test, Even Functions, Odd Functions, One-to-One Functions, Horizontal Line Test, Piecewise Defined Functions, Trigonometric Functions, Trigonometric Identities, Trigonometric Formulas, Exponential Functions, Logarithmic Functions, and Logarithmic Identities.
