Equatio Math Dictation

Let’s talk math!

Dictate equations and formulas aloud. EquatIO for Canvas understands what you’re saying, turning your spoken input to written expressions. It even ignores those ‘umms’ and ‘errs’ when you’re lost for words.

Handwriting recognition

Write math freehand on your device. EquatIO for Canvas instantly turns your handwriting into beautifully formed mathematical expressions.

Add math to Quizzes

Teachers can easily create interactive math quizzes, exams and formative assessments for students within the Quizzes tool in Canvas, and let them respond directly.

Math, chemistry and formula prediction

Just like text prediction on your phone, EquatIO can intelligently predict what you type, suggesting ‘square root’ when you enter ‘sq’. It can also propose options like ‘aluminum oxide’ or ‘aluminum nitrate’ as soon as you start typing ‘al’.

Graphing calculator

Our graphing tool powered by Desmos makes math visual. Simply enter any expression and see it plotted instantly. You can even overlay multiple graphs and use a dynamic slider to see the effect of changing variables in real time - great for visual learners and teachers alike. What’s more, if you already have a graph made in Desmos.com, you can import it directly into the Graph Editor in EquatIO.

LaTeX friendly

EquatIO for Canvas understands input in LaTeX, the typesetting and mark-up language that’s widely used for mathematical and scientific documents and publications.

Easy deployment across schools/colleges and districts

Available with an Unlimited License of EquatIO, admins can easily deploy EquatIO for Canvas across their entire school/college or district, enabling all teachers and students to benefit from EquatIO without having to leave the Learning Management System.
