Graphing App for Students is a Calculated Success!
– No longer will pulling out a phone in class instantly raise the ire of a teacher. Smart phones are now able to assist students with tasks such as with research, assignment scheduling, and studying. With this in mind, Mathlab has created the Graphing Calculator app, which has impressed students, teachers, and parents alike with its ability to function as a scientific, graphic, fraction, and matrix calculator.
Parents appreciate that the application is free, although a Pro version is available that is not ad supported. More than 600,000 users worldwide, primarily students and teachers, have downloaded the app; the developers are anticipating more than 5 million downloads by 2014. Additionally, the One Laptop Per Child project recently agreed to preload the application onto tablets for children in developing countries, making the application accessible to remote populations.
The app’s developers carefully programmed the Graphing Calculator application and spent over two years improving it so that it would perform smoothly and seamlessly. It has been featured as a “Click Pick” on WHNT news and showcased on a “Tech Check: Back-to-school apps” segment as a “must have.
Mathlab Product Development Manager Vadim Pelyushenko explains, “Our brand new app has been developed to exceed the expectations of parents, students and teachers and can make math problems a thing of the past. It performs simple operations and complex functions with ease thanks to its scientific, graphing, fraction, and matrix calculators. We’re passionate about using technology to enhance classroom education and have spent more than two years developing and refining so every math student gets the help they need to learn, understand, and excel. And best of all? It can be downloaded for free around the world so there are no barriers to getting ahead.”
While using phones in the classroom is still a novelty and not taken seriously by some, many others appreciate the benefits that modern technology brings. Valerie Thompson, head of the E-learning Foundation notes, “What technology allows teachers to do is give children an individual learning experience…the revolution is not the technology, it is the changing role of the teacher to make the most of the technology.”
As mobile technology continues to evolve, its practical application in the classroom will become evident, and just as the Internet has transformed the way people communicate with one another, there’s a very real chance that mobile applications will revolutionize the way students learn.
