# MathBot Episode 2: How to Use MathBot As A Scientific Calculator

TLDRThis episode of MathBot teaches how to use it as a scientific calculator. It covers basic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, as well as advanced functions like exponentials, trigonometric functions, and logarithms. The script explains how to input inverse functions and change angle units from degrees to radians. It also highlights the importance of following PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction) for correct calculations. Examples from past questions are used to demonstrate the usage.

### Takeaways

- π’ Start a conversation with MathBot by clicking 'solve math problem' to activate the scientific calculator feature.
- β To perform basic arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, simply type the operation followed by the numbers.
- π Use '^' to indicate exponentiation, and ensure to use brackets for clarity when the exponent is an expression.
- π For trigonometric functions like sine, cosine, and tangent, type 'sin', 'cos', and 'tan' respectively, followed by the argument in brackets.
- π To find the inverse of a trigonometric function, append 'a' to the function name (e.g., 'cota' for inverse tangent).
- π By default, MathBot uses degrees for angles. To switch to radians, type the angle value followed by a colon and 'radians'.
- π Logarithms are typed as 'log' followed by the number in brackets, with an underscore and base if not the natural log (e.g., 'log_10' for base 10).
- β Use 'sqr' for square roots, with the number or expression in brackets (e.g., 'sqr(10+6)').
- π MathBot follows PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction) for order of operations.
- π Examples from past exams like UTMA and Objective are used to demonstrate how to solve complex problems using MathBot.

### Q & A

### What is the main focus of MathBot Episode 2?

-The main focus of MathBot Episode 2 is to demonstrate how to use MathBot as a scientific calculator, including solving mathematical problems under calculation.

### How do you activate the MathBot for solving mathematical problems?

-To activate MathBot for solving mathematical problems, you click the chat work and then click 'solve math problem' to activate the math board.

### What mathematical operations are covered in the episode?

-The episode covers basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, exponentiation, and also covers trigonometric functions like sine, cosine, and tangent, as well as inverse trigonometric functions.

### How do you indicate an exponent in MathBot?

-In MathBot, you indicate an exponent by using the caret symbol (^) before the number. For example, '2^3' would be typed as 'exponential carrot 2 three'.

### What is the default unit of angles used in MathBot?

-The default unit of angles used in MathBot is degrees.

### How can you change the unit of angles from degrees to radians in MathBot?

-To change the unit of angles from degrees to radians, you type the angle in degrees followed by a semicolon and the word 'radian'. For example, 'sin(3.14:radian)'.

### How do you type a logarithm in MathBot?

-To type a logarithm in MathBot, you use the 'log' command followed by the number in parentheses and an underscore with the base if it's not a natural log. For example, 'log(100)_base_10'.

### What is the default base for logarithms in MathBot if not specified?

-If the base is not specified when typing a logarithm in MathBot, it defaults to the natural log, which is base e (approximately 2.71828).

### How do you represent a square root in MathBot?

-In MathBot, you represent a square root using the 'sqr' command followed by the number or expression in parentheses. For example, 'sqr(10+6)'.

### What is the standard order of operation used by MathBot?

-MathBot uses the PEDMAS standard order of operation, which stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Division and Multiplication (from left to right), Addition and Subtraction (from left to right).

### Can you provide an example of how MathBot solves a complex mathematical expression?

-Sure, an example from the script could be '3^(2+1)'. According to PEDMAS, you would first calculate the expression inside the brackets (2+1), then calculate the exponentiation (3 raised to the result of the brackets).

### Outlines

### π Introduction to Math Port

The script introduces Math Port, a tool designed to solve mathematical problems. It explains how to use the tool by starting a conversation with Clara and activating the math board. The focus is on solving calculation problems, and the script demonstrates how to input mathematical expressions, including addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and exponential functions. It also covers how to input trigonometric functions and their inverses, such as sine, cosine, and tangent, and how to change the default angle unit from degrees to radians. The script emphasizes the use of brackets and the order of operations in mathematical expressions.

### π’ Understanding PEMDAS in Math Port

This paragraph delves into the standard order of operations in mathematics, known as PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction). It clarifies how Math Port follows this order to solve mathematical expressions. The script provides an example to illustrate the process, highlighting the importance of solving expressions within brackets first, followed by exponents, and then proceeding with multiplication, division, addition, and finally subtraction. The script also mentions that when the power is an expression, brackets are necessary. It concludes with references to past questions from UTMA and other exams to demonstrate the application of these concepts.
