Math Xpander is Available for Free Download!

Math Xpander is an interactive educational software
package for school mathematics that allows students to
learn by engaging in active exploration. HP, the
inventor of the first handheld scientific calculator,
developed this exciting educational software package
that helps to advance education through innovative
technology.

Math Xpander was developed on the premise that
technology should empower rather than be a complicated
barrier to learning. Math Xpander’s easy-to-use
capabilities include a graphing environment that lets
you sketch graphs directly on the screen. You can
then convert a sketch to a genuine mathematical object
by selecting from an extensive library of standard
forms. You can even transform graphs directly with a
stylus and observe the effects in graphic, numeric,
and symbolic forms simultaneously.

Math Xpander also includes a unique environment for
creating and exploring geometric constructions. With
it, you can transform geometric objects while watching
measurements or calculations change. You can also
impose or relax constraints in a construction or use
the measurements or calculations to control geometric
objects’ attributes!

In collaboration with Saltire Software Inc, HP is
pleased to make this demonstration version of the Math
Xpander software available to students and educators
at this web address:

Math Xpander runs on several Pocket PC devices,
including the versatile HP Jornada 540 Series Color
Pocket PC. Also available on the Saltire web site
are two electronic lessons (E-lessons): an interactive
periodic table of the elements, and a lesson exploring
the composition of functions. All for free!
