New Feature: Equation Module

Equations Module Available for LaTeX, MathML, and AsciiMath Notations

Digication is proud to announce the addition of a brand new "Equation" module type available for users to include beautifully formatted mathematical equations in their ePortfolios!  With this new module users can add content in the form of LaTeX and AsciiMath notations, which will will be displayed as equations on the page once it's published as seen in the sample below.

Users can add the "Equation" module as they would with a rich text or gallery module; by going to "Add A Module" and selecting "Equation" from the menu.

When editing the equation module, the preview will show users how the equation will look once published after the closing tag has been applied as shown below.

We hope that this new addition to our module lineup will prove useful to our customers in the math, science and technical fields. Enjoy it!

    Wonderful module. Works well for Boolean Algebra too. What is your recommended method of stacking equations, i.e. showing a step-by-step solution? Must I add multiple modules or is there a way to put things on separate lines? "Enter" does not work.

    Glad you like it Bruce! At the moment you will have to create a new module to show step-by-step solutions. We will look into a better solution.

    Hello Bruce! You can also stack single string equations on top of one another by including \\ between them as shown in the image below

    This would allow grouping together but you would not be able to add regular text in addition for the purposes of explaining progression.

    Hope this is helpful info!

    This (\\) may work in LaTex but it does not work in ASCIIMath. Is there an ASCIIMath equivalent?
