New ! OneNote for W10 allows to plot a 2D graph of an equation.
This is a great new feature : anyone will now love maths, thanks to the combination of ink, colours and visual appeal of graphs !
You may watch the Microsoft video to see how it works (especially with the ability to adjust the a & b variable).
As a matter of fact, this feature was already available in OneNote Online, although much less intuitive (and requesting an internet connection !).
Select “Graph My Equation” in the store, to install the add-in
Type your equation
And here it is !
Update 07/05/2017 : there is a new add-in available in the Store : Symbolab.
It is better than the previous one, because it copes with multiple equation :
Anyway, there are plenty of choice now (without even mentioning GeoGebra, which OneNote can embed)…
Update Sept. 2017 : in addition to plotting 2D graph, OneNote also calculates key features such maxima, minima or axes intercepts.
Update March 2018 : Geogebra not anymore embedded ?
Any news on embedded #GeoGebra-Applets? @zbynek_geogebra @msonenote . This is not a good solution for the OneNote UWP-App on Windows 10… Lots of interactive textbooks do not work properly… pic.twitter.com/wgpRxODvNx

Update 21/07/2018 : OneNote UWP can also cope with multiple equations, probably since May 2018 although Microsoft description (“Graph of multiple functions”) and illustration ( h(x)=x2 – 4 ) is misleading.

Nice to see that it’s now a full fledged feature.
Would you like to share your best graph with me ?
