The Mathist & Google Drive

Nowadays, Google Drive means a great opportunity for teachers and students to embrace the 4Cs of 21st century educationcommunication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

We found this really inspirational and creative pin-board that illustrates some of the best ways to use technology to your advantage in the classroom:

Lets dive into the features that can boost your productivity and help you seize the day with your students. We promise it is going to be easy and fun. Here are some good practical suggestions on how to use Google Drive in your classroom.

We strongly believe that such technologies will transform the ways we teach, study and work together. That is why The Mathist from now on uses Google Drive to store all your mathematical notes enabling you to organize, share, tag and search through them easily, so you can reach Zen in your classroom. 🙂

The Smartest Notebook

The Leap Forward

We are very proud to present you the new MathistIt is a real sneak peak into the future, that allows you to easily solve and compute anything you write with a single click!

Here are some examples;

  • Simplify any expression to speed up problem solving,
  • Plot graphs,
  • Evaluate expressions and get approximate values,
  • Solve equations and inequalities (with visual representation),
  • Solve definite and indefinite integrals (with visual representation),
  • Crunch difficult logarithms,
  • Find derivatives and much more…

You can do all of this with just one button: solve-on

Why is this important?

Have you ever worked on a problem, that is easy to understand, but just requires too much number crunching? – So did we!

We understand that learning a million new things every day as a technology or a science student doesn’t leave too much time for crunching math. And yet in most cases you cannot solve anything without it.

We decided create a solution to this problem with the help of cutting-edge technology.

The Mathist allows you to focus on problem solving and not number crunching, so that you achieve better results at things you are interested in!

The New Autocomplete Feature!

With thie new Autocomplete feature it is now easier than ever to write formulas!

To write a formula just start typing its name and The Mathist will suggest it to you.

Using the Up and Down keys choose the formula from the list and insert it by pressing the Right arrow or the Enter key, or just tap or click on the one you need.

For example: to write the root, start typing: ro… and watch The Mathist narrow the choices with each letter. 🙂

To cancel the autocomplete, press Escape or the Left arrow.

Select & Copy-Paste

Hello, Dear Math Enthusiasts

We are very proud to announce this great and very requested feature. As the title says, you are now able to select any math formula and copy and paste it around the note.

To select something,  just place your cursor where the expression you wish to select is, and press the select button. Then you can adjust the handle bars to precisely select only the parts you need.

Note that your selection can span only a single line.

A Quick Tip:

You can also copy and paste between different notes, just as you would expect it work.

Wolfram Alpha is coming to The Mathist!

The Mathist Team has spoken to the exceptionally kind folks at Wolfram Alpha and have agreed on releasing the official Wolfram Alpha powered update of the application within 3 weeks from now

We are really excited about this update, it is going to introduce some really awesome features!

To start with, just think of automatic equation solving, or having the worlds largest mathematical formula registry inside your own notebook…

Think how you might enjoy using this break-through technology on your math class!

We are looking forward to hearing if there are any features you would like to be included in the update. Please feel free to comment and let us know of your thoughts… 🙂 

Best Wishes. The Mathist Team
