Gradarius Understands Calculus...
and Its Challenges

GradariusTM is an innovative Calculus learning platform developed by Distinguished Mathematician Dr. Alexei Miasnikov, together with Dr. Alex Myasnikov and his colleagues from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Designed to help students master Calculus concepts for deeper understanding, Gradarius assists each student at every step of the learning process — offering immediate feedback, guiding problem solving, pointing out mistakes and providing hints.

In 2010, Dr. Miasnikov and his colleagues wanted to improve how Calculus was taught in the Mathematics department at Stevens. Being an institution focused on engineering and science, they turned to technology. After evaluating a large number of commercially available online Math systems, they were disappointed to find that most of these systems only covered Algebra, Geometry or Trigonometry. The few systems that covered Precalculus and Calculus were mostly focused on students providing only a final answer with multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank formats. Dr. Miasnikov and his colleagues observed that students liked the online systems, but were not adequately learning Calculus.

With most existing Math software focused on students providing only a final answer, Gradarius was designed knowing that students need to solve problems in a detailed step-by-step manner and be intellectually challenged throughout the process.

Superior Personalized Instruction

Frustrated by the lack of an effective system, Dr. Miasnikov and his team decided to build an online Calculus learning platform that encourages students to “show their work”—in fact, all of their work—in a free-form manner, similar to solving Calculus problems on paper. According to Dr. Miasnikov, “Leveraging Computational Algebra research and algorithms we developed under grants funded by the National Science Foundation, we set out to develop advanced architectures and coding frameworks, leveraging adaptive learning and symbolic computation techniques designed to provide students with relevant feedback and helpful instruction after entering each step of the solution.”

The result of the effort is Gradarius–the world’s first Stepwise Calculus Learning Platform. Encompassing patent-pending technology, the platform mimics the behaviors of a seasoned tutor by providing positive reinforcement and suggestions each step of the way, without solving the problem for the student. Far surpassing the limited functionality of paper, Gradarius delivers state-of-the-art capabilities that have eluded math professors, teachers, and tutors for centuries: the ability to immediately offer every student meaningful feedback and guidance during each step of the problem-solving process for each and every problem, any time of the day or night.
