Add-on to SMART Notebook software
With SMART Notebook Maths Tools you receive a variety of maths-specific tools, as well as access to all the great features and Gallery items available in SMART Notebook software
. SMART Notebook Maths Tools embeds all the tools you need right into SMART Notebook software, saving you from running several different applications during a lesson.
Customisable maths toolbar
Get instant access to maths-specific tools within SMART Notebook software. Customise the default toolbar to show only the tools you want, or display a second toolbar just showing maths tools.
Handwriting recognition and equation solving
Handwrite questions on the fly - SMART Notebook Maths Tools recognises handwritten mathematical equations and symbols that can be solved and graphed. Expressions can be numerically or symbolically solved, with full support for fractions, exponents and multi-line expressions.
Advanced equation editor
Insert and edit textbook-quality equations into your lesson activities with the advanced equation editor. You can copy and paste equations or question sets without reformatting from other software applications, such as Microsoft Word. SMART Notebook Maths Tools recognises most equations, allowing you to solve and graph solutions.
Texas Instruments emulator integration
If you have a Texas Instruments emulator, you can launch it with one click in SMART Notebook Maths Tools. The TI calculator stays on top of your other applications, so it’s always available for copying maths expressions into your lessons.
Table and graphing tools
Incorporate tables into your lesson activities. SMART Notebook Maths Tools includes maths table features with labeled columns and dynamic, interactive graphing capabilities. Easily show the relationship between tables of values and their points plotted on the graph. Changed values on the graph are automatically reflected in the table and vice versa.
Use the Graph Wizard to create graphs that suit your lesson, or use one of the default graphs for fast instruction during a lesson. Lines and shapes can be added to your graphs, with the option of showing the coordinates of the vertices and side lengths.
New and improved shapes
Discover shapes not previously available in SMART Notebook software. Incorporate perfect squares, semicircles, triangles and curved lines into your activities. In addition, SMART Notebook Maths Tools includes 12 standard regular polygons and a new irregular polygon tool that enables you to create polygons with as many sides as you want. You can also draw a circle from a centre point.
Manipulate shapes and incorporate them into your lesson activities. With angle manipulation, you can independently adjust the vertices of any shape and watch the angle and line lengths change instantly. Adjust 1 angle and the corresponding side lengths change automatically. The display of side lengths can be hidden and revealed anytime during a lesson.
Divide shapes such as circles and rectangles into equal parts using shape division. Then label each part as a fraction of the whole. The individual parts can be independently manipulated or grouped with others.
Make accurate measurements with the advanced ruler. Resize it for your lesson activities by increasing or decreasing the length without losing the scale. Use digital ink to trace along its edge, it will give you a perfect line every time. The ruler can be flipped for metric or imperial measurements and all of the numbers on the ruler stay vertical as it is rotated making them easy to read. The ruler also displays the current angle as it is rotated.
Use the protractor in 180 degree mode or expand it to 360 degrees. You can use digital ink to trace along its edge to draw a perfect curve. Numbers on the protractor stay vertical when the protractor is rotated, making them easy to read. The angle ejector allows you to set an angle on the protractor and instantly insert it into your lesson without having to draw it freehand.
Create arcs or circles easily with the compass. The ink always matches your current pen or ink selection, and the image can be adjusted to any size on the screen.
