I have been using OneNote for over a year now on both my work laptop and on my Surface RT. I did not know this until today, and discovered by accident that if you enter a series of functions and numbers, OneNote will do the calculations.
If you type: 4+4x3 = OneNote will automatically insert "16" after the equal sign.

I thought that was cool and don't think most people know about this feature. Enjoy! (Everyone likes Math right?)

That's a cool discovery. I could see this being helpful for people who want to do quick calculations that aren't complex enough to need Excel formulas.
