Simple to use modular calculator with steps to solution and result explanation.

It is highly recommended to make sure you have enabled BCMath or GMP extension on your PHP server for much faster calculations.


composer require mathematicator-core/calculator


Imagine you want compute some math problem, for instance:

(5 + 3) * (2 / (7 + 3))

How to compute it? Very simply:

$calculator = new Calculator(/* some dependencies */);

echo $calculator->calculateString('(5 + 3) * (2 / (7 + 3))'); // \frac{8}{5}

Method calculateString() returns entity CalculatorResult that implements __toString() method.

Advance use is by an array of tokens created by Tokenizer:

$tokenizer = new Tokenizer(/* some dependencies */);

// Convert math formule to array of tokens:
$tokens = $tokenizer->tokenize('(5+3)*(2/(7+3))');

// Now you can convert tokens to more useful format:
$objectTokens = $tokenizer->tokensToObject($tokens);


Mathematicator Framework tools structure

The biggest advantage is that you can choose which layer best fits your needs and start build on the top of it, immediately, without the need to create everything by yourself. Our tools are tested for bugs and tuned for performance, so you can save a significant amount of your time, money, and effort.

Framework tend to be modular as much as possible, so you should be able to create an extension on each layer and its sublayers.

Mathematicator framework layers ordered from the most concrete one to the most abstract one:

Search Modular search engine layer that calls its sublayers and creates user interface.
Vizualizator Elegant graphic visualizer that can render to SVG, PNG, JPG and Base64.
Extensions: Mandelbrot set generator
Calculator Modular advance calculations layer.
Extensions: Integral Solver , Statistics
Engine Core logic layer that maintains basic controllers, DAOs, translator, common exceptions, routing etc.
Tokenizer Tokenizer that can convert string (user input / LaTeX) to numbers and operators.
Numbers Fast & secure storage for numbers with arbitrary precision. It supports Human string and LaTeX output and basic conversions.
