The specialty of OneNote Ink Math Assistant is that when you hand write an equation, OneNote app does not only convert it to text but also outlines steps to find a solution for it. This capability (intelligent assistance) makes OneNote your math tutor. Besides, it pairs nicely with Editor, the recently announced intelligent writing assistant in Word. The dual combination of these apps makes Office an even better partner to help you learn things more effectively.
