Hi M &N:
Looking for help for a tech dinosaur (me)!
I am trying to create a practice worksheet for my math students, and thought I should try to get into the 21st C (20 years later) and create one with my laptop...(started with copy toner being spilled on my pants while using the mimeograph machine, now due to Covid -19 and stay at home teaching, I can do Google Hangouts, Meet, Jamboard, etc..I am trying!)
I want to use my typed up questions and cut/paste/dragged in math symbols/charts/ graphs/functions , etc, BUT I don't know where to easily access those on a math Web site?
When I tried using MS Word, I can see they have two Insert options (Equation and Symbol) both of which showed me very few options I want to use.
I am now thinking Google Docs (which I have very little experience working in) might be better..I am going to hack away in there next!
If so, I want a Math site I can search and grab examples of graphs, functions etc I can work with easily and copy in.
To save time, I thought some of you out there could direct me to a site/technique, etc.
Please keep any replies "Tech simple."
ANY help in this area would be greatly appreciated!
( I won't tell you from what State, as I don't want you to think poorly of my region)!
I have used MS Word, but like you - you have to click on "insert Equation" then using the drop down menu, you can access quite a few more math symbols.
This is also a product called MathType, that I have used in the past. What is everyone else using?
I will check it out.
https://www.texthelp.com/en-us/products/equatio/ This software is free for teachers. It is pretty user friendly tho' as a tech-immersed person I don't make promises ;) These folks have been making accessibility software since the 1980's. Doing math on computers ... used to be a complete nightmware ;) I believe you can say the equation and it will write it out.
I hadn't hear of this resource. Thank you for sharing!
P.S. I was hoping you would chime in! :-)
I did a webinar share on Equatio a few weeks ago...I believe you have to pay to join in (after the free trail period)?
I will look at it ...thanks!
It is free for teachers. For students to use it, it costs money.
That way I can use it to make things for my students.
www.goboard.com is another interface that includes mathy symbols for interaction.
Thanks Susan again!
I used Google Docs to create math worksheets. Here's an example of what the equations look like:
You can insert equations from the Insert menu.
You will get a drop down menu of different symbols, including a fraction bar.
Here's an explanation: https://www.howtogeek.com/436537/how-to-use-the-equation-editor-in-google-docs/
I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
Will check it out in Google Docs (which is where I have swapped over my effort to date from MS Word)!
