Today we are releasing Wolfram Multivariable Calculus and Wolfram Astronomy, the next two apps on a growing list of Wolfram Course Assistant Apps. These course assistants will help students learn their course material using the power of Wolfram|Alpha.

The Wolfram Astronomy Course Assistant allows you to easily look up information on constellations and planets, but it can also calculate anything from the next lunar eclipse to the solar interior.

With the Astronomy Course Assistant, you can also view sky charts of planets from your current location, which is calculated using GeoIP information.

Once you’re finished stargazing, rocket through your advanced calculus homework with Wolfram Multivariable Calculus. This course assistant covers multivariable limits, derivatives, and integrals, along with 3D plots and vector functions.

Multivariable Calculus Course Assistant Partial derivative

Wolfram Multivariable Calculus allows you to compute the solutions to your specific math problems and also shows much more information, including visuals and, in some cases, step-by-step solutions.

Have you ever ask “total solar eclipse in Illinois” by Wolfram|Alpha? You will see diamond ring at Augsust 22, 2017, near future. Let’s gather all the users and celebrate it! I am not sure how far from central zone to Champaign-Urbana but not so far.

Are there any plans for similar apps for Android or other phone systems (like Windows 7 for phones)?
