    Not sure if I'm the last to notice this free add-on to MS Word, but it was news to me! Just wondering if it has found any use amongst the Maths teaching community, or whether it is being recommended for students?

    I'm still trying to work out whether this is something which will ultimately replace Equation Editor and offer a free alternative to MathType, or if it is a move towards online computing (do calculations have to be done while online?)

    I've been using a version of it for a while now. Not sure if it is version 4. It is great for doing things. I love it for writing out solutions, working out answers, as it will expand, factrorise, integrate, differentiate, solve (including show steps), draw graphs etc... I find it really useful - but others may not.

    I haven't used it much. I prefer Wolfram Alpha.
