Calculus Calculator

by Max Hand


Submitted : Spring 2016

This project is the development of a C++ computer program that functions as a “calculus calculator.” The program will allow the user to input a function and domain and compute the integral or compute the derivative at a specific location. To determine the integral of the function, the program will use the numerical methods including the Simpsons Rule, Trapezoidal Rule, and the Midpoint Rule. To differentiate the inputted function, the program will use finite difference approximations. In addition to the programming of methods, the project will show how the finite difference approximations can be derived from the Taylor Series. To show that the program is running correctly and the calculations are correct, hand calculated solutions of specific sample problems are included.
