win7You know, Windows 7 is really a resourceful operating system! Among its unique tools and features, I have recently discovered something which, the very first time I noticed it, I simply left it apart without a second thought! I am talking about the great Math Input Panel. Such a great tool lets you  enter any mathematical equation (and more!) without using your keyboard. In fact, to use it, you will have to write using your mouse, and Windows 7 will read your hadwriting and will convert it to numbers, letters and symbols!  Here is how it works!

  1. Click the Start icon.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Click Accessories.
  4. Click Math Input Panel.
  5. The tool is diveded into two panes.
  6. The lower one is where you will have to write your math operations.
  7. The upper one is where Windows 7 will translate your handwriting. Don’t worry if your hadwriting is not “perfect”. Windows 7 is quite good at understading what you are writing.
  8. Before start writing, click on the lower pane. A new window located on the right of the tool will appear. It contains some important buttons such as: write, erase, undo, select and correct, clear etc.
  9. You can input a great range of symbols, equations, operations etc. Here is a list of what you will be able to do:
    • Numbers and letters
    • Arithmetic
    • Calculus
    • Functions
    • Sets
    • Set theory
    • Algebra
    • Combinatorics
    • Probability and statistics
    • Geometry
    • Vectors and 3-D analytic geometry
    • Mathematical logic
    • Axioms, theorems, and definitions
    • Applied mathematics
  10. If you want to correct something click the Select and Correct button, click the number (for example) you want to correct or change and the tool will show you a list of possibilities you can choose from.
