It’s awesome to see the pace of new features coming out for Microsoft OneNote. It was only earlier this week that I was blogging about using Desmos for graphing and then with OneNote Clipping tool bringing the graph into OneNote.

Well, now this functionality exists in the OneNote Universal app natively!

I decided to give this a test myself and see if works, and it did immediately:

As per the blog, there are five steps to digitally inking graphs in OneNote:

Five steps to graph an equation in OneNote

  1. Begin by writing your equation. For example: y=x+3 or y=sin(x)+cos(2x).
  2. Next, use Lasso tool to select the equation and then, on the Draw tab, click the Math button.
  3. From the drop-down menu in Math pane, select the option to Graph in 2D. You can play with the interactive graph of your equation—use a single finger to move the graph position or two fingers to change the zoom level.
  4. Use + and buttons to change the values of the parameters in your equation.
  5. Finally, click the Insert on Page button to add a screenshot of the graph to your page.

For now, this is only available in the Universal OneNote app, not in the OneNote 2016 application that comes with Office 2016. This is a great new feature further highlighting the power of digital inking as well as the speed of evolution of the educational products in OneNote.

    • Hi Richard
      It’s not available on the Mac Office 2016 version of OneNote, nor on Windows Office 2016 (OneNote 2016) at this stage. I believe it’s only on the Universal App (free) on Windows10. It doesn’t require digital inking as I think you can type the equation and still graph it, but of course handwriting interpretation is pretty cool!
