ClassPad.net / ClassPad.net Engine

TOKYO, August 1, 2018 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., today announced the official launch of ClassPad.net, a Web service that enables users to perform linear and quadratic function calculations, do graphing, and use a computer algebra system (CAS) to perform various calculations from expressions. Casio also announced that its ClassPad.net Engine for digital textbooks and computer-based testing (CBT) will be used by Kendall Hunt Publishing Company, which is based in the United States.

Casio first introduced the ClassPad series of graphing calculators with CAS software in 2003. They support not only factorization and equation solving but also advanced commands such as Fourier transform and Laplace transform. The ClassPad series is popular among students and instructors in math education.

Casio developed a CAS-enabled equation calculation and graphing engine with a Web browser interface based on the calculation and graphing engines developed for the ClassPad series of graphing calculators. ClassPad.net is the name of Casio’s Web service, and it can be broadly used for learning at home and performing technical calculations. ClassPad.net Engine is the name of the engine used in digital education platforms such as digital textbooks and CBT.

ClassPad.net

ClassPad.net is a Web-based mathematical calculation tool that anyone can start using for free. In addition to function calculations, the service supports graphing, statistical calculations, and geometric calculations. ClassPad.net is the world’s first*1 Web-based mathematics calculation tool that allows the user to arrange equations, geometry figures, and graphs freely. Users can combine elements flexibly in the window of their Web browser, such as equations and graphs, graphs and geometry figures, and multiple graphs. ClassPad.net offers three levels of service: FREE service that can be used without registration, BASIC service that is free but requires registration to unlock additional features such as saving calculation results and graphs, and PLUS service that requires a paid subscription to use the CAS and other features such as a function that allows handwriting of math input.

ClassPad.net Engine

ClassPad.net Engine is a fee-based Web application programming interface (API) designed for digital textbook publishers and CBT providers in such fields as mathematics, physics, and statistics. ClassPad.net Engine offers calculation and graphing tools that can be incorporated into equations and graphs in digital education platforms such as textbooks and CBT as well as an automatic scoring tool for question responses, enabling publishers and CBT providers to choose and incorporate the features they need. The engine recognizes when equations are mathematically identical despite being written in a different order (e.g., y=x2-4x+3 and y=x2+3-4x), to ensure that answers are scored correctly.
