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).

In OneNote Online, click on Office Add-in to open a window with a list of available add-ins

Select “Graph My Equation” in the store to install the add-in

Type your equation

Nota 21/08/2018 : now available in OneNote Online as well :
