As 21st century students we are constantly finding new ways of using technology to enhance our lives, and also our education at Sheffield Hallam University. As well as Hallam’s very own SHUgo app, providing access to the Library Gateway, emails and Blackboard sites, there are a number of apps on the market for smartphones and tablets, which could be useful and inspiring to students of various disciplines. This series of articles provides information about our selection of these innovative apps, but please leave a comment below or contact us on Facebook if you have any favourites of your own.
Math Formulary (Free – Android) or iFormulas (Free – iPhone)
These apps provide handy reference guides to students who experience any level of mathematics as part of their course; you could be a product design student who may need to work out the volume of a sphere, or a building surveying student who needs a quick reminder on the laws of trigonometry. From basic formulas to laws of complex geometry, Math Formulary and iFormulas both act as a gateway to a whole world of arithmetic in your pocket.
