I have seen many comments about this tool being ONLY useful or relevant to students. I learned math on a slide rule and am 69 yr old. I have some of the best calculators available, and yet this is so much easier for me to access and use rather than digging through the pile on my desk for one of those thinkin' machines. It doesn't matter if I am designing a crossover for a speaker, manifold back pressure, or a 1/4 wavelength for an antenna. It can do the job, it doesn't run out of batteries, and is always right where you left it. @HotCakeX

@Shahina Presume you've nicked this out of OneNote? But have to agree - Not a Browser Function?

Totally agree. I don’t know why people want this out so badly. Maybe they just hate math.
or a bloated browser with features they don't use.
hating or loving math is not the point of the conversation here. can't judge people for what they love or hate, it's their own business.

@Shahina it doesn't work when solving for a complex equation like the integral of the square root of tan (x)

"Rewards", "Maths Solver", "Pinterest"....should be extension (on PC) or Apps (on mobile), instead of built-in function of a browser.
I thought MS was moving correctly toward more modular/flexible browser...and Windows OS itself. Unnecessary function should be "installed/enabled by user, not default" to reduce attack surface.
Really dislike this.

@kamfung I can see your point. They could have made it an 'Extension' or an 'APP' (I hate that term). I think because it is tied to the Web for a solution, especially with the copy-n-paste and handwriting abilities it needs a little bit more help In the computing dept. Remember also, that they are trying to FORCE us to become cloud dependant. Can't you just wait till you only have the use of a dumb phone and the cloud to do all of your computing?
