Writing a Math Expression in a Note

The Insert tab offers the Equation Editor (click the Equation button) for

writing mathematical equations, and you’re welcome to give it a spin, but much

more useful than the Equation Editor is another tool called the Ink Equation

Editor. As shown in Figure 2-7, you can use it to construct mathematical

expressions for notes.
