A Review of the Graphing Calculator by Mathlab

Nowadays, the smartphone plays such an important role in our lives because it is practical in many areas. It improves efficiency for whatever I need it for. It is with me wherever I go. Out of all the functions my phone can do, being a calculator is one of the best!

I tutor science to students privately and I also teach Olympiad preparation in my high school, both of them need a lot of calculations that require calculators. The problem is that my students I teach don’t have a calculator. Weirdly enough however, they all have phones, Android phones to be exact, ah… these kids.

It’s a nice way to download one video, for many videos though, it is long and tiring process. I already go through google and forum recommendation to find the best software to quicken this process and haven’t gotten satisfactory result, until I find Miro.
