MathType has been available to Moodle users as an integration for several years but it is now certified. Wiris has actively maintained this integration to ensure that all learners have the best experience when dealing with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) content.
A straightforward process for digital math
MathType is an editor that simplifies the process of writing mathematical equations, making it as straightforward as writing it on the chalkboard. It smoothly integrates with Moodle, making it simple for users to add math equations and formulas into different types of content like quizzes, assignments, forum posts, and lesson materials.
MathType is used by many institutions worldwide and is dedicated to ensuring that everyone can create and access mathematical content.
Benefits of using MathType
Whether you are an educator or a learner who is looking for more accessible mathematical content, MathType can be beneficial to you in several ways.
If you have ever edited math formulas and required high-quality output, you’ll know the struggles of getting the right font and the right alignment if the formula is within a text paragraph. MathType solves this for you with great quality, making it a preferred choice in education, scientific, and publishing contexts.
It offers a user-friendly interface that simplifies the process of creating equations, eliminating the need for complex LaTeX coding. It ensures that anyone – be it a math novice or an expert – can develop a professional-looking equation with ease.
MathType is compatible with touch devices, which allows you to add handwritten formulas that are automatically converted into clean digital equations, ready to be seamlessly integrated into your content.
Also, this Certified Integration caters to users across all levels of mathematical complexity, making it a versatile tool for STEM subjects. It complies with accessibility requirements, ensuring that every individual, regardless of their ability, can use it effectively, with features like keyboard accessibility and compatibility with screen readers and WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
MathType extends its utility beyond pure mathematics by including notation elements that are extremely useful for physics. There is also an additional toolbar called ChemType, equipped with specialised chemistry buttons tailored for editing inorganic chemistry formulas.
As the CEO and Co-founder of Wiris, Ramon Eixarch, says, “Wiris has been integrated with Moodle for more than 15 years. Now, we embark on a new chapter through this strengthened partnership. As we continue to work closely with Moodle, we are inspired by the impact our collective efforts will have on students and educators around the globe.”
