In this talk we give details into our development of the MathBrush Pen-Math system. MathBrush is a system for doing mathematics on pen based devices. Initially developed for tablet PCs the system now runs on Surface Pro and iPad devices connecting to both Maple and Sage for doing their mathematical manipulations. We discuss the algorithms developed for recognizing handwritten mathematics along with the various trade-offs encountered while designing interfaces for doing math on pen-based devices.
