Create, explore, evaluate and solve math concepts with SMART Notebook Math Tools.
SMART Notebook Math Tools is one of the most popular products we carry for interactive white boards. If you are using any of the SMART Technologies IWBs, you should consider Notebook Math Tools as a strong addition to your classroom.
This add-on to SMART Notebook software combines all the tools you need to teach math in one single application.
Notebook Math Tools from SMART Technologies enables you to easily outline a lesson, write notes and create, graph and solve equations, without having to leave SMART Notebook software.
With SMART Notebook Math Tools, you can deliver lessons that support your students' individual learning styles because it enables you to represent math concepts in multiple ways. The software has a large selection of dynamic math tools, such as a shape creator, graph builder and advanced equation editor that will make your lessons more visual, understandable and interactive.
SMART Notebook Math Tools is ideal for classrooms that use SMART Board interactive whiteboards because it recognizes and enables you to solve and graph handwritten mathematical equations.
Equation editor – Allows users to copy, paste and edit equations in SMART Notebook software. 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 Math Tools recognizes most equations, allowing you to solve and graph solutions.
Handwriting recognition – Recognizes handwritten mathematical symbols and equations and converts to computer typeface. Handwrite questions on the fly - SMART Notebook Math Tools recognizes 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 multiple line expressions.
Texas Instruments calculator integration – When TI calculator software is installed, it can be launched through SMART Notebook Math Tools, giving users immediate access to TI apps. If you have a Texas Instruments emulator, you can launch it with one click in SMART Notebook Math Tools. The TI calculator stays on top of your other applications, so it’s always available for copying math expressions into your lessons.
Dynamic graphing – Links equations, tables and graphs, enabling educators and students to explore how changes in an equation affect its visual representation in a graph. 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. SMART Notebook Math Tools includes math 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.
Custom graph builder – Makes creating custom number lines and graphs easy by setting the x, y axes, start and finish, and the scale.
Shape manipulation - 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.
