This is the second tutorial in the Microsoft Mathematics Tutorial Series. In this tutorial, we learn how to perform basic mathematical computation using Microsoft Mathematics.
There are three parts of Microsoft Mathematics used in numeric computations: the calculator pad (green box) where the command buttons are located, the input box (yellow box) where the commands are typed, and the output boxes where the input, the step by step computations (if applicable), and the output of the computations are displayed. The input text box and the output boxes are located in the Worksheet tab.
Open Microsoft Mathematics to perform the computations below. » Read more
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
