# Math Help - Is there any software that does this?

1. ## Is there any software that does this?

I currently take all my notes on OneNote 2007. So far, it's working great for text notes BUT for math notes..it's not great. Entering equations through the keyboard is HORRIBLE, infact it doesn't have support. I have a tablet pc so I can write on it.

This solves the problem because I can now directly write my math equations on OneNote. The thing is, while I'm in "tablet mode", I can't use the keyboard.....so if I wanted to write some text notes....I'd just have to ink it.

With Maple, the problem is solved because I enter notes and math with my keyboard. The problem with Maple is that it's not like a "notebook" where I can write notes like OneNote 2007. Maple is great for verifying my math work though.

So if I choose the keyboard route, I have to use Maple. If I choose the inking route, I have to use OneNote and I have no way of verifying the equations in Maple (without converting to keyboard). By the way, maple has inking support....let's just say..it sucks.

Is there any software that does both?
Ideally, I want to go all inking, from inking notes to inking equations to inking and verifying the equations.
If I use the keyboard instead, I want to write notes in a way similiar to OneNote (where you can write notes anywhere on the page).

Microsoft Word 2007 has something similar to LaTeX built into it. Have you tried it before?
