The iMath extension for intelligent formulas enables numeric and symbolic calculations inside a Writer document. The development of iMath was prompted by a problem which I often encountered doing calculations in my profession as a mechanical engineer. I would first begin writing out the problem on paper, putting together the necessary equations, and then turn to a spreadsheet to do the actual calculations. iMath is meant to integrate this process in a single Writer document.

Windows users might need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (search for "vcredist" on the Microsoft website).

See also the CompPad project which has a similar goal, and CmathOOoCAS which adds symbolic capabilities to calc.

How to use iMath is described in the iMath wiki and illustrated by examples in iMath-tour.odt,which you can find in the subdirectory matching your iMath version.

Known working configurations are:
iMath 2.1.0 on Windows 7 with OpenOffice 4.1.1
iMath 2.1.1 on Windows 7 with OpenOffice 4.1.1
iMath 2.1.4 on Windows 7 with OpenOffice 4.1.2

Other and better tested versions are currently only available for LibreOffice, see the sourceforge download page.
