TexthelpⓇ partners with Desmos to introduce dynamic graphing in its EquatIOⓇ Math software


Texthelp’s STEM Solution, to offer graphing capabilities via Desmos’s accessible API

September 29, 2017 Woburn, MA. Texthelp (www.texthelp.com), a leader in education support software, today announced its partnership with Desmos (www.desmos.com), the creator of the best-in-class HTML5 graphing calculator used by millions of students around the world to help them experience all the curiosity, beauty, and sense that math has to offer.


Through this partnership, Texthelp will integrate Desmos’s graphing solution into EquatIO, the award-winning STEM tool, which makes it easy for students and teachers to create equations, formulas and other mathematical expressions digitally. With the addition of Desmos’s API, EquatIO users will now be able to add graphing to its growing list of capabilities.

“Our integration with Desmos will enable EquatIO to become a one-stop-shop for making math and other STEM subjects digital,” says John McGowan, Product Manager of EquatIO. “Teachers and students will no longer have to switch from one tool to another depending on the problem they’re working on, bringing us closer to our goal of seamlessly integrating technology into the math classroom.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Desmos,” says Martin McKay, Chief Technology Officer and founder of Texthelp. “They have made the best graphing tools out there, and have taken time and effort to make them accessible. With such similar goals for both our products and the future of math education, it was a no-brainer to team up with Desmos on our EquatIO product. We are thrilled to be able to offer a robust and integrated product for our teachers and students.”

“Texthelp has long been a leader in accessible, digital literacy education. Similarly, Desmos is a leader in accessible, digital math through our WCAG 2.0 aligned calculator API. With the introduction of their STEM offering, EquatIO, a partnership between our two companies just made sense. We are thrilled to be able to provide EquatIO users dynamic graphing capabilities alongside their other digital representations of math,” says Eli Luberoff, CEO and founder of Desmos.

Desmos integration will first be made available this Fall in EquatIO mathspace, the latest addition to Texthelp’s STEM offering, which brings EquatIO out of purely the G Suite set of tools and into a larger browser based environment for increased collaboration, visualization, and discovery. Desmos’s graphing solution will also be integrated into ‘EquatIO for Google’, the Chrome Extension, followed by ‘EquatIO for Windows and Mac’, the desktop offerings.
