Last month, Microsoft announced a new Math Solver feature in its Edge browser, which helps users solve maths problems. After testing the feature with Canary Channel Insiders in recent weeks, it looks like the company is finally bringing Math Solver to users running the stable version of the Edge browser (via TheWinCentral).
Indeed, a recent update to Microsoft Edge Stable has brought an experimental flag that lets users enable the Math Solver feature in the browser. It is a free service that allows users to get help with a wide range of mathematical concepts, including algebra, trigonometry, statistics, arithmetic, calculus, and more.
To try out this feature, Microsoft Edge users will need to enable it manually in Settings. To do this, simply follow the steps listed below:
- Type “edge://flags/#edge-math-solver” in the address bar, enable the Math Solver flag and then restart your browser.
- Next, head to Settings >> Appearance >> Customize toolbar and turn on the “Show Math Solver” button.
- Microsoft Edge will add the Math Solver button to the toolbar for quick access.
Once you enable this option, click the “Select math problem” button and capture the equation you want to solve. Finally, click the “Solve” option to receive an instant solution in the sidebar. The tool will also provide step-by-step guidance on other available methods that can be used to solve the same problem. In addition, you can also click on the Show more learning content option to get access to learning resources, including online videos, quizzes, and worksheets.
Overall, the Math Solver feature is a nifty tool for helping students better understand complex mathematical problems. The addition of this feature makes it quite easier for students or teachers to quickly look up the solutions to complicated equations without leaving the tab.
