Foundations of Vector Calculus in a Virtual Reality Environment

Calcflow, powered by Matryx on STEAM, lets students explore mathematical theorems and scenarios in an interactive virtual reality environment. Essentially it allows them to visualize mathematical concepts in a completely new way. With the app, students can manipulate vectors with their hands; explore vector addition and cross product; see and feel a double integral of a sinusoidal graph in 3D, as well as a Möbius strip and its normal and spherical coordinates; and create their own parameterized function and vector field. The developers have created a series of tutorial videos on YouTube to support those trying the app for the first time. CalcFlow also supports note-taking within the app. Users simply push the trackpad and write in 2D or 3D. The app requires use of a virtual reality headset. Cost: VR app is free.
