- Mar 11, 2015
Ask your child about the subject in school that haunts her worst nightmares. And promise her a bar of chocolate if she gives you an honest answer! I can safely bet eight out of every ten students would have ‘Math’ as their instant response. There is something about this complicated subject that repels most learners. For some, it’s Trigonometry. Or, Algebra. For others, it might be both that seem impossible to crack.
However, there exists a more menacing monster who is always associated with Math, can you guess what it is? Well, it is ‘Calculus’ dear friends. Accompanied with complex formulas, derivatives and functions, this Mathematical topic is enough to give you sleepless nights. I remember how I used to wrestle with the sums of Integral Calculus, and even Differential Calculus despite practicing then daily.
However, the advent of technology has made education more interactive and learning more convenient for all kinds of students. So, you need not fret about Calculus anymore, dear students. For, there are some intelligent apps that can go a long way in guiding you in Calculus. They enable you to understand the concept of this topic. Let us take a glance at the top seven apps for mastering Calculus, in the following paragraphs:
