 Grand Prize Winner:  

Sumerics, Florian Rappl

Sumerics is a numerical tool for plotting, performing numerical calculations and doing experiments with sensors in the new Ultrabook. Advanced high school students as well as university students will benefit from the rich numerical possibilities, such as calculating with matrices or complex numbers. The tool can be used by scientists to analyze data with in-built statistic functions or plot them. The user-interface has been designed to be as touch friendly as possible. With this app, students can easily be creative in building experiments, which involve their Ultrabooks. Finally Sumerics can not only be used to do the experiments, but also to evaluate them.
