Abstract: Systems and methods for creating and integrating computations within compound documents wherein a compound document having a plurality of integrated computations is created in a computing environment. The compound document is configured to include a document text part and a plurality of math parts positioned in a plurality of locations. A selected first set of math parts within the compound document are expressed as computational functions of a second math part contained within the compound document. If a value is assigned to the second math part, the computational functions of each math part in the selected first set are automatically reevaluated and displayed.
