SVGcalc 1.2

Scientific/graphing calculator that runs in any W3C compliant web browser
1.2 (See all)
Chris Sabatke

The aim of SVGcalc is to provide the set of calculation and graphing tools commonly needed by high school math and science students in an elegant, browser-based, open-source fashion. This project attempts to capitalize on the cross-platform nature of web-based languages (HTML, JavaScript and SVG) to create a calculator that can be conveniently stored on a hard drive, accessed over a local or wide area network, or made available via an internet webpage. The intent is for any W3C-compliant web browser to run the program natively (without the use of third-party plug-ins). The specific functions chosen for the calculator, ranging from an expanded screen for long formulas, to least-squares regression of data sets, to function and inequality graphing, has been informed by my own 15 years of experience as a high school science/math/computer instructor. Finally, free distribution of the product is offered in the hope of serving other teachers who, like myself, have struggled to find simple, user-friendly, and yet comprehensive solutions to the computational and graphing needs of the high school science/math classroom.
