I'm a student and it's often annoying that I have to go through the arduous process of doing the entire quadratic formula or any other type of formula for a small piece of information I need to solve the overarching problem while I'm doing homework or an assignment. I wanted a faster way to use the formulas I already knew how to use so I decided to automate it.
What it does
- User gives values based on what they need from the formula (solve for x, solve for final velocity, etc.)
- Website uses HTML to calculate the value
- Website returns value, i.e. the answer to the formula
How we built it
repl.it <3 (and netlify)
Challenges we ran into
To make it short, outside distractions. Also I wanted to make sure the code was as efficient and coherent as possible was a challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The colour-changing background! And putting in a Spotify playlist for the first time! Really simple but very cool feature imo.
What we learned
I learned about how to use forms and variables in HTML and JS, and a lot more about CSS than I expected.
What's next for calculatia
Develop it to support more formulas. Worst-case scenario it'll just be a bookmark on my browser to help me out with math homework. Also, make it look better
