From basic math to precalculus, Microsoft Mathematics includes tools and features to help you achieve a better understanding of fundamental concepts and visualize mathematical concepts in new ways. Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 makes it easy to create graphs in 2D and 3D, calculate numerical results, solve equations or inequalities, and simplify algebraic expressions.
Installation of Microsoft DirectX is recommended because it takes advantage of hardware acceleration options, such as video cards. By default, Microsoft Mathematics opens the DirectX Setup wizard when the Mathematics Setup Wizard is complete. However, if your computer does not have DirectX installed or cannot use the technology, Microsoft Mathematics uses an alternative rendering format for 3D graphs.
