Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 is a free Application that provides a set of mathematical tools to help students get mathematics work done quickly and easily.
Students can learn to solve equations and draw graphs, while gaining a better understanding of fundamental concepts in number, algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, and calculus.
Microsoft Mathematics includes a fully-featured graphing calculator that is designed to work just like a handheld calculator.
Additional maths tools help evaluate triangles, convert from one system of units to another, and solve systems of equations.
Here is a video introduction to some of the Graphical Calculator features of MS Math 4.0
MS Mathematics 4.0 Equation Solver
Here at Passy World we have only started using Mathematics 4.0 recently.
So far we have mainly been solving Linear Equations.
On the main ribbon menu, we click onto "Equation Solver" and type in our equation like this.
We can then click on the "Solve" button to obtain our answer.
In Worksheet view, we can click on "Solution Steps" to get the full working out displayed.
The Equation Solver easily handles all types of Linear Equations.
By Clicking on the "Graphing" tab we can get a graphical solution of our answer.
The Graph Plotter is great to use for demonstrations of how y = mx +c graphs, (or American y = mx + b lines), as well as graphical solutions for simultaneous equations.
The plotter also does a range of other graphs including parabolas, cubics, and even three dimensional graphs.
We are planning to explore a lot more of Mathematics 4.0, as there is plenty of useful functionality available.
Detailed Review of MS Mathematics 4.0
Here is a video which shows the primary features of MS Mathematics in detail.
Remo Knops has a comprehensive review of Microsoft Mathematics on his blog.
