Inserting Equations

Inserting Equations

Using the Equation Editor tool built into SLATE, you are able to insert a variety of mathematical expressions directly into your text, including:

  • Equations & Inequality Statements
  • Fractions
  • Roots & Powers
  • Trigonometric Operations (sin, cos, tan)
  • Set Operations (union, intersection, super/subsets)
  • Matrices & Vectors
  • Integrals, Derivatives, & Limits
  • Summation & Product Notation
  • Logical Statements (if then, if and only if, not, and, or, for all, there exists)

You can include these mathematical expressions almost anywhere on SLATE that allows you to enter text, including news items, content files, discussion boards, and quizzes.

Look for the Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 10.34.21 AM symbol in the text box.

If the text box is smaller and the Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 10.34.21 AM symbol does not appear, click the Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 10.48.02 AM symbol to make more options appear.

There are three methods available in SLATE to insert equations into your course:
