'Features:1) Scientific Calculator. A lot of thought has gone into the design of the keyboard, which gives you everything you need while keeping the keys as large as possible. Available functions include the following:• the usual arithmetic functions and exponentiation.• square root, cube root, nth root, natural log, log base 10, log of arbitrary base, absolute value, factorial, permutations (nPr), combinations (nCr), modulus, random integer, bell curve, cumulative normal distribution.• Define and name your own constants• Summations• Complex numbers!• Sig figs (requires iOS 6; enable under settings)• Programmable keys (enable under settings)2) Graphing. Capabilities:• Graph up to nine equations at once.• Graphs are labeled.• You can drag the graph or pinch to zoom in or out.• Calculator can find roots and intersections.• Can graph in polar coordinates.• Can graph parametric equations.• Can graph parametric equations.• Can graph implicit functions, such as x^2+y^2-4=0. Most calculator apps can't do this!3) Vector and Matrix calculator. Vector dot and cross products. Multiply and add matrices. Determinant, transpose, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors. 4) It can make a table of the values of any function you care to enter. You can choose the starting x value of the table, as well as how much x increases for each successive row.5) Triangle solver. Enter three sides, two sides and an angle, or two angles and a side, and the solver calculates the rest.6) Polynomial solvers. Find roots of linear, quadratic, or cubic polynomials.7) The reference hits the high points of the following subjects:algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, vectors, vector calculus, and classical mechanics. So if you need a reminder of a trig identity . . . or the quadratic formula . . . or the chain rule from calculus . . . and so on, it's right there for you.8) A unit converter. Your data are in meters, and you need an answer in feet? No problem! With a tap, you can enter the result of your conversion into the calculator. Currently converts different units of the following: acceleration, angle, area, density, distance, energy, force, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, and volume. Great for physics problem sets! You can also define your own units.9) Constants for scientific calculations -- speed of light, strength of gravity at Earth's surface, etc. etc. etc. Tapping on a constant will insert it into your calculation -- i.e, you don't have to key in the value. Again, great for physics problem sets!10) Works on both iPhone and iPad.'This app costs $2.99Quick Graph: Your Scientific Graphing Calculator App for iOS

'Quick Graph is the best graphic calculator available on the AppStore! It is a powerful, high quality, graphic calculator that takes full advantage of the multitouch display and the powerful graphic capabilities of the iPad and iPhone, both in 2D and 3D. A simple, yet intuitive interface that makes it easy to enter and/or edit equations and visualize them in mathematical notation. It's capable of displaying explicit and implicit (opt) equations as well as inequalities (opt) in both 2D and 3D, in all standard coordinate systems: cartesian, polar, spherical and cylindrical, all with amazing speed and beautiful results, which can be copied, emailed or saved to the photo library.״It's ok to write yet another graphing app, so long as it is the best one. And this is״-- Review by RightyC1Please keep in mind that in this version, you now have to specify y=, x=, z= and so on, whenever you want to plot an equation.The advanced feature set gives you access to some of the new features, such as implicit graphs and tracing. You need to specify the dependent variable now, since just typing "x^2" without the y=, will assume the expression to be "x^2=0" and will try to plot it as an implicit graph.Up to 6 equations can be visualized simultaneously, in both 2D and 3D modes, this limitation can be removed by purchasing the advanced feature set. All the features from the original application are present and will remain free.It also includes an evaluate feature, to evaluate equations at specific points, as well as a library where you can store commonly used equations.Features:- VGA Output (available with the advanced features package. iPhone 4, 4th gen iPod, and iPad only)- 2D - 3D equation plotting.- Library for commonly used equations.- Wireframe and solid visualization.- Support for cartesian, polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems.- Pinch to zoom.- Drag to rotate - move.- Swipe to delete equations from the equation list.- Shake to reset view to original state, or to clear entry fields.- Double tap to change visualization modes.- Enhanced 2D mode for great hi-res graphics.- Adaptive 2D algorithms.- Enhanced 3D mode with better graphics.- In-app email so you can share graphics and equations.- Save to photo library.- Copy to clipboard.- Enhanced equation visualization.- Hyperbolic and Inverse functions.- New functions such as Min, Max, if.- Interactive expression evaluation.- Optionally you can unlock implicit graphs, inequalities and other advanced features (via in-app purchase).- Turn graphs on/offThe optional advanced feature set includes:- VGA Out- 2D tracing.- 2D and 3D implicit graphs.- 2D and 3D inequalities.- Independent 2D zoom- Roots and Intersections (2D)- Value Table- More features to come!'This is a free appDataAnalysis App for iPad

It is particularly useful for quick analyses of various types of data by curve fitting, value prediction via a standard curve, and analysis of kinetic data including enzyme kinetics.Data can be entered directly via the keyboard or imported from the Mail App as a text file (.txt), and comma separated value file (.csv). In addition, data can be imported via drag and drop within iTunes. Data files in txt, csv and native formats can be imported directly from Dropbox.After data entry the user has the option to average, baseline correct, and/or normalize the data before plotting and fitting.Plotting of the data is as simple as pressing the Plot button. The axes are autoscaled and the graph is immediately ready to add to a document or presentation. The user has a variety of options to customize the graph by altering the axes, axes labels, graph title, and changing the symbol, its size and color.The data can be fit to a variety of mathematical equations by non-linear regression including simple functions such as linear, 2nd and 3th order polynomials, power, exponential, log functions. Data can also be fit to more complex equations for such processes as radioactive decay, enzyme kinetics, 1st and 2nd order chemical reactions, as well as gaussian, logistics and surge functions. The fit can be overlaid on the data with different line widths, types and thicknesses.For many analytical situations, the data fit can be used as a standard curve to determine the value of unknowns. This analytical procedure is completely automated within DataAnalysis.The program output, graphics and text, can be copied, emailed, or uploaded to Dropbox in a variety of formats including PDF, PNG and TXT. The graphics in PDF format can be edited with programs like Adobe Illustrator™ as objects.DataAnalysis also supports multitasking and printing of input data as well as all forms of output.DataAnalysis has built in tool tips, comprehensive web based instructions and how-to videos available via the Help Menu.'This is a free appJumbo Calculator App for iPad
