Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 is here


Microsoft mathematics 4.0 is a free software for middle to high school mathematics teachers and learners. I haven’t used it yet but according to Jeff Thomas of Tech the Plunge it is good. He writes:

“Microsoft Mathematics provides a set of mathematical tools that help students get school work done quickly and easily. With Microsoft Mathematics, students can learn to solve equations step-by-step while gaining a better understanding of fundamental concepts in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, and calculus.

Microsoft Mathematics includes a full-featured graphing calculator that’s designed to work just like a handheld calculator. Additional math tools help you evaluate triangles, convert from one system of units to another, and solve systems of equations.”

He also says that many teachers consider these types of tools as cheating, but apparently he doesn’t agree.

So what do you think? will you use this or other soft wares like these or do you consider them as cheating?

You can download it from here. You can also download Microsoft mathematics add onn for MS Word and One note from here.
