Mathematics and statistics faculty members release virtual reality app


Drs. Jeremy Becnel, professor, and Nick Long, associate professor, both of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, developed and released a virtual reality app.

The “Calculus in Virtual Reality” app allows students to view lessons on mathematics in three dimensions as well as use interactive demonstrations to further explore related ideas. The app is free to download and available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

From noon to 1 p.m. every Thursday, Becnel and Long will hold informal discussions regarding this app and other virtual reality projects in the Emerging Technology Lab, located on the first floor of Steen Library. Students and faculty and staff members are invited to participate.
