Announcing the Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant

March 5, 2012 —
Comments Off

In continuing our goal to create “An App for Every Course, and More”, we are happy to announce the latest in our Course Assistant series of iOS apps: the Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant. Powered by Wolfram|Alpha, the Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant will help you work your way through homework problems, ace your tests, and gain a better understanding of linear algebra concepts!

Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant

This definitive app for linear algebra—from the world leader in math software—will help you solve complex problems on the fly. The Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant covers a wide variety of topics, including solving an equation or a system of equations, adding or subtracting any two vectors, finding the cross product or dot product of two vectors, and computing linear transformations.

Working with matrices is also no problem for the Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant. It can easily calculate a matrix product; add or subtract matrices; find the characteristic equation, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors of a matrix; and find the dimensions, transpose, adjugate, rank, inverse, determinant, and reduced row echelon form of a matrix.

We are always interested in hearing your thoughts on what Course Assistants we should make, so leave your suggestions in the comment section below!


Please develop these apps for Android as well as ipods.

If this app was on android it would be so helpful. I don’t own any appl products. Please make it happen.

    why is there always new apple products but only one product for android that isnt really that useful to me. Please start putting an honest effort on making all of these apps available for android. This concern has been going on for years and I have seen no progress

Would it be possible to add an imaginary unit (i) as one of the keys? I don’t know how it would apply to basic linear algebra problems and how it would affect the algorithm of the program, but as someone who is using this while studying quantum physics, it’s nice to visualize the unit when sifting through information.

I suppose it doesn’t really matter much since you can just put any variable in its place, or even the pi key, though it would be a nice convenience.

I would also like to be able to buy a version for androids (HTC Desire HD)

I agree with the previous comments. It makes me sad when I see a useful app for an apple product that I would like to purchase, but don’t hear any news about it ever coming to android devices.
