Scientific Calculator + Graph Plotter + TeX Renderer = Discord Algebra System (DAS)

## Backstory

The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has significantly affected education and teaching all over the world. With schools shifting to remote learning, there is a sudden demand for software solutions to assist in this difficult transition.

Being a student myself, I have noticed the difficulty in explaining mathematical concepts over the Internet as opposed to face-to-face. Thus, with this in mind, I have developed DAS to support the learning of mathematics online.

*The name DAS was inspired by my calculator, TI-nspire CX CAS, where CAS stands for computer algebra system.*

## Showcase

## Mission

The Discord Algebra System (DAS) is a Discord bot with the purpose of providing the capabilities of displaying, solving, deriving, integrating and graphing equations in a quick and accurate manner to assist in the learning of mathematical studies directly inside a Discord server to the great benefit of students, teachers and tutors.

From the comfort of users' own private servers, they will be able to visually represent calculations within a popular social media platform without the hassle of opening up other applications or taking screenshots of physical material.

## Features

Display math text (or render TeX) as an image

Graph equations (polynomials, trig functions and conic sections)

Solve equations (both real and complex solutions)

Derive and integrate equations

Factor, expand and simplify expressions

Basic calculator functions (e.g. add, divide, etc.)

## Technologies

Integrated Development Environment (IDE): PyCharm

User Interface (UI): Discord

Version Control: Github

Programming Language: Python

Libraries Used: discord.py and Matplotlib
