What's New

MATH 42 version 2.0 is a completely redesigned and redeveloped program. It only overtook the appearance, the systematics and the intelligence.

• Exercises and test results are in the Cloud and available to registered users on all their iOS devices.
• MATH 42 2.0 has a new 2D-entry combined with intelligent parentheses — it works like a common calculator but without the complex syntax.
• The keyboard offers the following new functions: n-th root, GCD, LCM, factorial, absolute value, arc-sin/-cos/-tan, rad/deg, inequations, vectors and nxm matrices.

All mathematics present in MATH 42 1.7 and everything that has been free up until now, stays free in MATH 42 2.0.

New Premium Features are available for 30 days for free for registered users. From then on they are available through a monthly subscription;
• Equations: substitution ans numerical solutions
• Case distinction for equations with absolute values and inequations.
• Analysis: Integrals (By parts, by substitution, partial fraction decomposition), definite- and indefinite integral, curve sketching (Derivatives, roots, extremes, inflection points)
• Linear algebra: vectors and matrices (Adding, multiplying, determinant (2x2, Sarrus, Laplace), inverse, characteristic polynomial, eigenvalues and -vectors, kernel, rank, Gauss-algorithm, LSE)

App Description

MATH 42 helps middle-school-, high-school- and college-students to understand mathematics better. It helps them with homework, ahead of tests and during studies with (1) intelligent approaches to the solution, (2) Step-by-Step solutions and (3) a training- and test-mode. Exercises and solutions can be posted on Facebook and sent by eMail. 


All math that was free up until now will also be available for free in this version of MATH 42.

• Simplifications and transformations (Signs, combining, factorizing, binomial decomposition, …)
• Fractions (adding, reducing, multiplying, simplifying, GCD, LCM, …)
• Logarithms and trigonometric functions (rad/deg)

• Linear equations
• Fractional equations
• Quadratic equations
• Systems of equations (linear and non-linear)

• Polynomial long division

• Derivation (sums, exponents, products, quotients, chain, powers, roots, trigonometry, …)

• Graphical Curve Sketching (Derivation, roots, extremes, inflection points, poles, asymptotical functions, intersection points)

The Premium features are available for registered users for free for one month. From there on they’ll be available through a subscription.

• Equations of higher degree (numerical solutions, substitution)
• Exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric equations (Substitution)
• Absolute value and inequations (Case distinction)

• Polynomials (Roots, factors)

• Integrals (By parts, by substitution, partial fraction decomposition), definite and indefinite integral

• Curve Sketching (Derivation, roots, extremes, inflection points)

• Matrices (adding, multiplying, determinant (2x2, Sarrus, Laplace), inverse, characteristic polynomial, eigenvalues and -vectors, kernel, rank, Gauss-algorithm, LSE)


Unlimited access to all Premium features with one of the following subscriptions:
• 1 month for 8,99 USD 
• 3 months for 17,99 USD (5.99 USD / month)
• 6 months for 23,99 USD (3.99 USD / month)
• 12 months for 35,99 USD (2.99 USD / month)

Your subscription will automatically renew after 1, 3, 6 or 12 months depending on your chosen subscription and your credit card will be charged through your iTunes account.
You can turn off auto-renew at any time from your iTunes account settings.
