Virtual Reality App for Visualizing Calculus Concepts

Calculus in Virtual Reality (CalcVR), an app for iOS, uses a Google Cardboard headset to enable the user to visualize concepts in multivariable calculus within a virtual reality setting. Users can specify their own objects for visualization, as well as go through lessons on the geometry and calculus of multivariable functions and the corresponding surfaces. In addition, users can explore the concepts covered in the lessons through interactive demonstrations that address 2D and 3D coordinates and graphs, curves and surfaces, vector valued functions of one variable, vector fields, multivariable functions, and vector calculus. Because these elements are rendered in a virtual environment, users can see the depth of these mathematical objects and the multiple facets at play in the study of these math concepts. The CalcVR project is supported by Stephen F. Austin State University and the National Science Foundation. Cost: Free
