FastMath is a tool designed to help students practice calculus. In class, students face new concepts at a rapid pace, and through their homework they rarely see the same type of problem more than once. The goal of FastMath is to help students to master simple forms of problems so that they can more quickly execute harder ones that they may encounter.
FastMath was initially developed as a Hackathon project by a team of Computer Engineering students: Stephen Just, Stefan Martynkiw and Jacob Ortt. The initial version of FastMath was developed using a combination of PHP and Python 2, however it has since been completely rewritten using the Django framework in Python 3.
