Microsoft Mathematics is now free, the perfect tool for the math geek in you

It doesn’t matter if you are a Windows, Mac or Linux user, you will have undoubtedly used the built-in calculator to solve a few sums.

If you found the calculator limited or are someone that needs a little more power to work out more complex equations, Microsoft’s decision to make its Microsoft Mathematics application free might be of interest to you.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Microsoft Mathematics provides users with a number of different mathematical tools that can help students and those interested in maths, get their work done quickly and easily. It will help users learn to solve equations step-by-step instead of providing a straight answer, educating the user and allowing them to better understand the fundamental concepts in pre-algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, and calculus.

Its graphing calculator works much like a handheld calculator, also helping to evaluate triangles, convert units and solve different equations.

The application was once a paid download and is now free, it also comes with a help file to explain its functionality and provides examples of different math problems. Microsoft Mathematics is supported on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Windows OS but it  does require the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.
