Scientific Calculator B1 - End-to-End math operation for iPad and iPhone

January 31, 2012 in Education (E)

[] Langenfeld, Germany - MTbrain IOS Development today is proud to announce version 2.9 of the Scientific Calculator B1, a scientific calculator for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch. The main design pattern was to create a powerful, but easy and intuitive to use Scientific Calculator which ensures the continuous workflow from 'end-to-end'. Unlike many 'calculate & forget' calculators, this calculator supports the transparent and reusable operation as it is necessary in science, school and office. Beside many functional improvements (a huge set of physical/chemical constants) and interface improvements the B1 comes along with a complete new way of realizing arithmetic bracket function - called 'Formula Injection'.

Werner Schmidtberg (Chief Developer, MTbrain): "The typical scientific way of solving complex questions or calculation is to cut them in smaller, more transparent and less error prone pieces. That's exactly the model behind formula injection, which we have developed for this version.It is part of the educational design pattern of the Scientific Calculator B1.It lets the user break operations into independent, logical pieces which can be injected later into a running calculation. Utilizing bracket keys and bracket function is no more longer necessary."

The calculator itself uses the arithmetic Infix-Notation system which has been developed by MTbrain from the ground up. A wide range of mathematical operations and of common conversion functions are supported, including logarithms, trigonometric functions, roots and arbitratry exponents. During the whole operation the calculator displays the complete calculation path for each single calculation step. Operators and Brackets are checked and set automatically. The final results and formulas can be persist in the flash memory and as a full record in the internal database as well. The records can be commented for later documentation and can be reused in every detail to continue later operations. The Database records can be sent via email in normal text format for the universal use in other documents.

Especially for scientist and students a glossary with over 600 specific math terms has been setup. It contains Wikipedia links to areas like 'general mathematics', 'algebra', 'mathematical analysis' and 'numerics' to ensure deep explanation. The content of this glossary is bilingual (english & german).
