Solutions for Maths and STEM

Making maths and science more accessible and engaging

There’s more than one way to solve a maths problem

From calculations to collaboration and critical thinking, when you think about maths, there's always more than one way to solve a problem. We all think and learn differently. Moving to digital STEM classes often has us thinking about how difficult it can be for you and your students to write complex maths equations on screen. Without knowing or teaching your students how to write in LaTeX, how can they accurately get their expressions down in a Google Doc, Google Form or a Microsoft Word document?

Texthelp tools give students the opportunity to truly show what they know in maths and science. Students and teachers can benefit from time saving tools that make maths more accessible and engaging.

Accessible and engaging maths

From learners with dyslexia to ELL students, we all learn and understand maths in different ways. Some learners prefer to work out problems by graphing, some prefer to talk it out.

With Texthelp tools, students have choice in how they engage and understand maths and science problems. This includes having maths read aloud using “maths-to-speech” and visualising concepts digitally.


Equatio helps to make maths and science more accessible and engaging for every learner. Equatio’s accessibility features help students to be more independent in all STEM subjects. It improves their learning experiences by giving them choice in how they understand and engage with maths. Students can use the tools in Equatio to visualise, digitise, and understand maths with independence in ways that best suit their needs.


Through its integration with Equatio, OrbitNote gives students access to the Equatio tools they’re familiar with to view and respond to maths problems, within a PDF worksheet. Tools like Equatio’s Screenshot Reader and Equation Editor make static PDF problems more accessible.


When coupled with Equatio, Read&Write gives students the ability to hear maths read aloud through “maths-to-speech.” This is a great help to those students who learn best through auditory processing.

Assessing progress in maths

Teachers in every subject use formative assessment tools to check for understanding, monitor learning progress, and provide feedback to students. In maths, formative assessment tools such as pop quizzes, asking students to build something, calling on students during class, and playing classroom games where students must apply what they have learned are used to gauge comprehension

Texthelp tools offer alternative digital assessment methods for students with disabilities or learning differences.


Digital assessment tools can empower you to move beyond giving grades to providing personalised assessment and feedback. This helps you and your students to get a clear picture of where they’re at and where they need to be. Equatio’s integration with Google forms allows you to easily set digital maths quizzes. Allowing you to hear from every student at one time, and give them personalised feedback, saving classroom time and closing the feedback loop quickly.

Equatio may also be used in line with JCQ Access Arrangements to support learners in formal examinations.

Enhance understanding in maths with manipulatives

In today’s digital classroom, getting students to work together to solve maths problems can be a struggle. Whether that means a group of students huddled around one device, or reverting to pen and paper, neither scenario is ideal in the fast-paced, modern maths class.

Texthelp tools help to create collaborative digital workspaces for maths teachers and students.


Equatio mathspace is a web-based tool that allows maths learners to work freely in a digital space with equations, shapes, and freehand drawings. Explaining your thinking in maths takes more than one line, and a combination of maths expressions and text. Multiple lines and shapes and freehand drawing in Equatio mathspace helps students demonstrate their understanding. Equatio mathspace integrates with Google Classroom, meaning each student has easy access to their own mathspace to solve. From here they can show their thought process and return to you through the mathspace dashboard.
