Microsoft Mathematics Tutorial 1 – The User Interface

Microsoft Mathematics is a free software capable of performing mathematical computations, plotting graphs, and solving equations. It is a scientific calculator, a grapher, and a computer algebra system in one. In this tutorial, the first tutorial in the Microsoft Mathematics Tutorial Series, we familiarize ourselves with the graphical user interface of Microsoft Mathematics.

The Microsoft Mathematics window has four main parts: Calculator Pad, Worksheet tab, Graphing tab, and Math tools.

The Calculator Pad is composed of button groups for mathematical computations.  Aside from the Standard buttons which are used in middle school and high school mathematics, it also includes buttons for mathematical such as Calculus, Statistics, Trigonometry, and Linear Algebra.

 The Worksheet tab is the default tab displayed when you open Microsoft Mathematics. It is where most input and output will be displayed. The large text box is where the keyboard input is made.  » Read more
