Modern curriculum requires students to purchase expensive handheld calculators, which has created a market with little competition or incentive for improvement. The purpose of this project was to create a competitive free alternative to be used outside the classroom for those who do not have the economic stability to purchase, for example, a TI-82, which costs approximately $100. Calculat3d is an Android application that matches the general-purpose functionality of the TI-82, including calculations, basic statistical functions, graphing, and creating programs. Additionally, a programming language and interpreter were created so programs can be written inside Calculat3d and be used alongside calculations, thus expanding the functionality of the calculator. Graphing functionality is also included in Calculat3d but expanded to three dimensions as opposed to the two-dimension limited TI calculator.

All pieces of art, whether paintings, movies or some other form, are accompanied by a distinct visual style that conveys specific messages and feelings to the audience. As arguably the most intricate form of art conceived, video games are no exception. Each video game is unique in not only gameplay, but also the style of graphics used to portray its visual (and sometimes audio) components. This thesis explores why visual styles in video games exist as well as some of their more well-known components, functions of graphic art styles, and the psychological impacts that stylistic choices may have on the player. This will be accomplished through a literature review on the subject, detailed analysis of two specific games with highly distinct art styles, and finally the valuable opinions and observations of three industry professionals.
