What is MathTax
I worked on this project during my first years in high school. I wanted to create a program, that could solve all/most of the numeric problems in high school math. Here solving does not only mean computing the answer, but also generate the method and calculations. The results given in this program is LaTex-code with explanations to the calculations. This way I only had to type in the problem and *boom* I suddenly had some nifty LaTex-code I just had to copy-paste into my compiler. You can really be calm and fast at an exam, if you use your head during the semester to make the computer do all the work.
Why call it MathTax?I was really proud of teaching myself how to program in Java - though I had been doing HTML, PHP, GML, C, C++ and C# since 7th grade.
I just thought this was really cool, so it needed a 'cool name' (though admittedly taxes are not that cool).
However I thought "Well, I have used mathematics for this. And I have used syntaxes in the codes. Why not combine Math and Syntax. MathTax!
Also I used to own the website TheSyntaxed.com - so that might have something to do with it as well.
Should I download this?There are quite a few apps/programs out there, that are better than this. I created it in Java, so it should be applicable on all different sorts of platforms. It was created around 2011-2012 so I don't know if it might have been outdated when being run using the newest Java-distributions. Give it a try if you need it - which you probably don't. Because if you know LaTex, you are probably in the university. And if you are in high school, you probably don't know LaTex, and therefore this will only count as a calculation software (though plain text is an option).
