5 Cool Math Calculations You Can Do with Google Search

Search engines are used to search things on the internet. But did you know that aside from searching stuff, you can also do other things using search engines?

Google, probably the most famous search engine today, has made significant changes in it search box. Now, math calculations can be performed by directly typing mathematical expressions in its search box. Below are some of the calculations that you can do with Google search.

1.) Perform Basic Math Calculations

Google search allows you to perform basic calculations. Basic doesn’t just mean the four fundamental operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). It also includes exponentiation and modulo division. Not only that, Google search can also perform calculation using words (e.g. divide pi by 2).  » Read more

Learning the Mathematics of History through Ngram Viewer

Google Ngram Viewer is an online phrase grapher pioneered by Erez Lieberman Aiden and Jean-Baptiste Michel. It graphs words or phrases from more than 5 million textbooks digitized by Google. The x-axis shows the year while the y-axis shows the percentage of appearance in relation to other n-grams (1-gram is a 1 word phrase, a 2-gram is a 2-word phrase).

The grapher is easy to use. Just type the words or phrases you want to know about or you want to compare. For example, I want to know which of the following jobs are popular:  actor, soldier, politician, athlete, and mathematician. Well, from the result below, if I were a young man who wants to be written in books, I probably wouldn’t want to be a mathematician.  » Read more
