Every parent has that moment when their kids' math homework gets too hard. You had no problem helping them with algebra, and you may have even made it through pre-calculus. But, once they start bringing home trigonometry, calculus and statistics, you want to give up.

Of course, you can still help out. You can read their math textbook with them, watch math instructions on YouTube, and hire a tutor. You're not doing them much good beyond that. But, with the right tools, you can help them do extremely complicated math problems.

One of those tools is the Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 calculator. It's an advanced but easy-to-use calculator. You can use it for calculus, statistics, trigonometry, linear algebra, standard math problems and even help out with physics and chemistry.

Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 has all the function keys, and prompts that your child will encounter. That includes basic functions, such as < and >. But it also includes much more complex functions, like cross product in algebra, sum of a series in calculus, sines and cosines in trigonometry, and mean, median and mode in statistics.

You can walk through these math problems with your kids. Have them write down each step as you move along on the calculator. They'll see how to work out these math problems, to get the correct answer. Once they've mastered one type of math problem, you can move onto the next one, so you're confident they're doing their homework correctly, and they're prepared for quizzes, tests and exams.
