Operations You Can Perform

Of course the big question with the Symbolic Calculator app is what are the types of calculations you can perform? The app is able to take on calculus equations such as limits, integrals, and derivatives with ease. When it comes to algebra you can use it for collecting terms, operations on polynomials, and even division with remainder. As well you can use this app linear algebra such as reduced echelon form, rank, and determinant. The app is able to do plotting and you can export your entire session as a PDF file.
