easily add equations, formulas and more into Google docs and forms

We've made some exciting updates to the g(Math) product under the new name, EquatIO. Made for today’s tech-focused classrooms, this Chrome browser extension lets you type, handwrite, or dictate equations, formulas and more directly on your computer or tablet. Then add your expression with a click of a button to Google Docs or Forms. Input’s easy with EquatIO. You don’t need to know any complicated math code or programming languages like LaTeX.


the difference between g(Math) & EquatIO?

EquatIO has all of the great features you've come to know and love in g(Math), including Simple and Advanced Math Input, Speech Input and Handwriting Entry. But because it's now a Chrome extension, EquatIO has improved features - as well as entirely new ones - that will enhance the experience for you and your students.

The tool that’s making math digital

Despite the recent advancements in edtech, math teachers and students have still predominantly been using pencil and paper to create math and respond to math questions... Until now.

Thanks to the g(Math) Add-On, it’s quick and easy to create equations, graphs, stats displays and math quizzes to insert into Google Docs, Sheets, or Forms. 

Now students at all levels - and their teachers - can write virtually any mathematical expression directly on their PC or Chromebook’s keyboard or touchscreen. 

The best part? You don’t need to know any math code or programming languages. g(Math) understands what you’re writing, instantly turning your expressions into clear, accurate, on-screen formulas. It even comes with a huge range of ready-made formulas and functions that you can insert at the click of a button.

Accessibility for All Subjects

Math is probably not the first thing you think of when you consider different types of communication. But, in reality, math is just another way to tell a story - show us how you got from Point A to Point B to solve this equation.

Our desire to help people communicate, therefore, extends to communication through math as well. That is why we have integrated g(Math) with our award-winning software, Read&Write, to make math accessible. 

Through this integration, math expressions created in g(Math) can be read aloud, just like any other content on the page. By making math accessible for the first time, we are transforming the way students with dyslexia and other learning difficulties learn and practice math.

Finally, accessibility for all subjects.

The g(Math) expert is now a Texthelper

g(Math) wouldn’t be where it is today without the vision and expertise of John McGowan, the founder of g(Math). That’s why he has joined us as well - to lead Texthelp’s focus on math and ensure that all future enhancements to the product are made with his original vision in mind.

After all, John knows what math teachers and students need.

John has 16 years working as a math teacher. He has taught every subject, including Statistics, Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus across a wide variety of grade levels. He has also made a name for himself in edtech, having presented at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and a number of conferences on digital math, as well as implementing technology into classrooms. 
When it comes to product development, John’s ultimate goal is to ignite student interest in math by creating dynamic visualizations and using scripts to give personalized instruction and feedback to students instantly. As we support and improve the existing g(Math) tool, we are relying on John to make sure we achieve that goal every step of the way.
