Microsoft may extend the calculator in Windows with graphics. An idea for this has been given the pre-production status at Microsoft’s Calculator development project on GitHub.

The GitHub project now contains thirty ideas, pitched by users. An idea has meanwhile made it to pre-production status so that preparations are made to start developing.

The proposal is to give the Windows calculator basic properties of a graphing calculator. For example, the calculator must be able to interpret mathematical functions, understand linear and quadratic models, and be able to process trigonometric functions.

“With a graphical calculator we can improve the learning capacity of students by involving them more and offering visualisations of mathematical functions,” said the initiator. He has added a concept of how the effect can roughly look like.

Microsoft published the Windows open source calculator app on GitHub at the beginning of March.
