Power Search Bar

Did you know that your search bar is more powerful than you thought? You can use it as a calculator and a dictionary. Many times in class a student asks for help on their math or we are reading something and we come across a word we don't know. Since opening the calculator in the Applications file and getting a dictionary off the shelf are WAY too slow (tongue in cheek) you can use the search bar to perform these tasks. Give it a try. Press the search bar shortcut (Command + Space Bar) and type 3+4 and the answer will appear just below it. Type in a word, like rambunctious, and the definition and part of speech will appear. Pretty cool. A great party trick!

Also, to quickly exit the search bar press 'Esc'.
