# Microsoft Mathematics

Microsoft Mathematics is a tool for solving various math problems, from basic arithmetic to complex equations, with step-by-step guidance.

## Description

Microsoft Mathematics is a tool that lets users to perform all kinds of calculations, starting from addition of numbers to plotting complex 3 Dimensional equations. In other words, it is a windows calculator. It has a clean and easy to use interface, and a user can easily personalize it with skins, as well as calculator themes. On the left side, there is a calculator where you can enter numbers; you can also use your keyboard, or a stylus to key in all kinds of mathematical expression in a blank worksheet. The software executes the equation and shows the results at the bottom are of the Window.

### Background

Developed by Microsoft in 2008, Microsoft Mathematics was first available as a part of the Microsoft Student bundle. It ran only on Windows until 2015 when it was updated to run as a web platform and a mobile app. In it’s fourth version it is no longer supported with active updates, though it is still a useful tool for students.

### Features

Microsoft Mathematics has several useful features you can use to help in many areas of math and even in some areas of science. There are a few areas that you should know about to effectively use the program. These include the clipboard, numbers and angles, input, and tools categories to choose from to maximize the program.

#### Using Tools

Several different tools are used to solve different equations. These are the bread and butter of Microsoft Mathematics and what helps students learn how to solve problems on their own.

#### Equation Solver

Enter the equation you need to solve. Then, with one click, you get step-by-step instructions on solving problems. Also, you can see other ways to solve or a graph of the problem.

#### Formulas and Equations

Choose from categories to solve from and then, with one click, solve or see the graphic solution to Microsoft Mathematics. Choose from:

- Algebra
- formulas and equations
- geometry
- physics
- statistics
- chemistry
- Law of Exponents
- trigonometry
- properties of logarithms
- constants
- Triangle Solver

This will enable you to calculate the length of the sides of any triangle. It can also help in solving the measures of all the angles in a triangle and with the Pythagorean Theorem.

### Unit Converter

This tool will easily convert all types of measurements applicable in both math and science professions and industries. You can convert almost anything, including:

- length
- mass
- volume
- area
- width
- weight
- pressure
- temperature
- power
- velocity
- time
- force
- energy
- Graphing Tools

This is a part of the equation solving function. When you input a problem there will be an option inblue in order to graph one or both sides of an equation.

#### Types of Math Included

Microsoft Mathematics can assist you in almost every area of math. These include:

Statistics

Linear algebra

Standard Math

Trigonometry

Geometry

Calculus

Though it is no longer supported by or available in the Microsoft website, you can still find Microsoft Math as a mobile app or as a plugin for Microsoft Word or OneNote. This lets you do math right inside those applications.

#### A Useful Problem Solver

Microsoft Mathematics is a exceptionally useful program if you are looking for some help solving equations. It will allow you to learn and understand the way to solve more complicated math problems.
