Visualizations of Curves, Surfaces, and Vector Fields in Multivariable Calculus

The Calculus in Virtual Reality (CalcVR) app for iOS and Android contains a wealth of content focused on multivariable calculus, covering topics such as 2D Coordinates and Graphs, 3D Coordinates and Graphs, Curves and Surfaces, and Vector Valued Functions. The twist is that the content is set against a backdrop of 360-degree images. Each section contains interactive demos in which students can manipulate the data using a Bluetooth controller or the interaction button on a mobile headset. The focus of CalcVR is on geometric understanding of the concepts and notions prevalent to multivariable calculus. Virtual reality is an ideal environment to explore the geometric meaning of three-dimensional objects encountered in multivariable calculus. Supplemental activities and explorations (Supplemental Materials) help further the understanding of geometric concepts and derive connections between these concepts and algebraic calculations. The CalcVR app is designed to be a tool for outside of class meeting times rather than in a group setting. The Supplemental Materials offer different ways to connect the geometric tools of the CalcVR app to activities and assessments that can be done both in class meetings and outside of class meetings.
