Introducing More Ways and Places to Make Math Digital

One thing I love about math is that there are multiple ways you can tackle solving a problem. Even something as simple as an addition problem can be solved by counting on your fingers, using physical or digital manipulatives, tally marks, and so on. When it comes to more complex problems, those possibilities continue to grow.

That’s why one of our underlying goals for EquatIO was to lose the limits - making it easy to do math the way YOU want to do it, on the platforms that work for you best.

Today, I’m excited to announce that we’ve expanded our EquatIO® offering, breaking down even more barriers to ensure EquatIO works for you!

What’s the Good Word?

Along with our Google Extension, EquatIO for Google, we would like to introduce EquatIO for Windows and EquatIO for Mac, desktop apps that integrate with Microsoft Word!

With all the same features and functionality as EquatIO for Google, now you and your students can easily create mathematical equations, formulas and more directly in Word - perfect for classroom handouts, homework assignments, and exams.

Make Math Together with EquatIO mathspace

We’d also like to introduce EquatIO mathspace (Preview), a web application currently available through the Chrome browser that creates an even bigger virtual workspace for increased visualisation and discovery. In EquatIO mathspace, you and your students can seamlessly combine digital expressions and formulas with geometric shapes, manipulatives, handwritten notes and more - encouraging students to stop solving problems and start exploring them!

What’s more, EquatIO mathspace’s sharing functionality opens the door to more collaboration and review. As a teacher, you can send an assignment to all the students in your class. Once students have solved the problem, they can send their response back to you with a click of a button and you’ll receive an email alert to let you know that a new response has come in.

Want students to do group projects or share their solutions with their classmates for peer review? EquatIO mathspace is the ideal canvas for sharing, annotating, and working together to find a solution.

Last, but certainly not least, you and your students now have the freedom to present problems and responses the way that you envisioned them! We’ve finally made it possible for you to put mathematical expressions IN-LINE with your text - perfect for word problems and mathematical or scientific papers. What’s more, your students can use multi-line functionality to show the steps they took to reach their solution. Showing their thinking has never been easier!
