Math equations can be entered and displayed directly in OneNote pages, and can use a wide range of basic and trigonometric functions. These work in Onenote 2016, 2013, & 2010.

Microsoft OneNote supports the use of math functions directly on a page. Below is the current list of available math functions and their usage.

Type the equation as it appears, followed by an "=" ("equals sign"), and press [Enter]. The answer will appear next to or underneath the equation.there should be no spaces at any point in the equation.
Example: if you type "3+3=" and press [Enter], it will display in OneNote as "3+3=6". Below are the full lists.

 Operator Meaning Example + (plus sign) Addition 3+3 - (minus sign) Subtraction Negation 3-1 -1 * (asterisk) Multiplication 3*3 X (upper or lowercase) Multiplication 3x3 / (forward slash) Division 3/3 % (percent sign) Percent 20% ^ (caret) Exponentiation 3^2 ! (exclamation) Factorial computation 3!

Trigonometric and other functions:

 Function Description Syntax Example ABS Returns the absolute value of a number ABS(number) ABS(12) ACOS Returns the arccosine of a number ACOS(number) ACOS(12) ASIN Returns the arcsine of a number ASIN(number) ASIN(12) ATAN Returns the arctangent of a number ATAN(number) ATAN(12) COS Returns the cosine of a number COS(number) COS(12) DEG Converts an angle (in radians) to degrees DEG(angle) DEG(12) LN Returns the natural logarithm of a number LN(number) LN(12) LOG Returns the natural logarithm of a number LOG(number) LOG(12) LOG2 Returns the base-2 logarithm of a number LOG2(number) LOG2(12) LOG10 Returns the base-10 logarithm of a number LOG10(number) LOG10(12) MOD Returns the remainder of a division operation (number)MOD(number) (12)MOD(12) PI Returns the value of π as a constant PI PI PHI Returns the value of Φ (the golden ratio) PHI PHI PMT Calculates a loan payment based on a constant interest rate, a constant number of payments, and the present value of the total amount PMT(rate;nper;pv) PMT(12;3;12) RAD Converts an angle (in degrees) to radians RAD(angle) RAD(32) SIN Returns the sine of the given angle SIN(angle) SIN(32) SQRT Returns a positive square root SQRT(number) SQRT(16) TAN Returns the tangent of a number TAN(number) TAN(12)
