Depending on your needs, Math Minion can be either a powerful scientific calculator that understands units, or a sophisticated modelling tool that is better suited to science and engineering problems than traditional spreadsheet programs.

It combines a mind map style representation of the relationships between expressions, with a formula system that operates transparently on scalars, arrays and matrices. A hierarchical model system helps encapsulate calculations in logical and easily duplicated units and a flexible unit conversion system tracks the fundamental property types through calculations. This allows it to know, for instance, that some fathoms divided by a few days is in fact a velocity that should not be added to a kilogram.

Some interesting features include:

  • equations that work equally well with scalars, arrays and matrices

  • a function library that in addition to the usual suspects includes, matrix multiplication, matrix inversion, comparison functions, an interpolation function and more.

  • a flexible unit conversion system that helps automate dimensional analysis
    models and model arrays for information and calculation encapsulation

  • a solver for one or more nonlinear equations

  • an optimizer

  • an ordinary differential equation solver

  • a x-y graph tool.

  • an iterator tool.

  • Supports iCloud document handling compatible with the Math Minion on iOS.

  • What's New
    Version 2.2 changes for the Mac version:

  • The introduction of a new HTML object, which can be used to provide a custom user interface to your calculations.

  • A number of new statistical functions have been added.

  • Removed need for quotes around simple alphabetic units in formulas.

  • Addition of an eval function that evaluates its string argument as a formula.

  • Expressions objects can display their value in diagram notes.

  • Added Dropbox handling to the Mac version.

  • Added sending by email, iMessage and Airdrop to the Mac session utility menu.

  • A plot's X axis title will now be blue if the plot has more than one X formula.

  • Miscellaneous minor bug and interface fixes.
