Equatio is Texthelp’s powerful STEM solution. This game-changing tool makes maths and science digital, accessible and engaging. Students can speak, type or draw any expression directly into their device. Using Equatio, students can show problems, line by line, and develop their answers. It’s like working on a super-smart whiteboard with a specific maths keyboard. Accessibility features are built into the software. For example, students with learning difficulties or visual impairments can hear their maths read aloud to them. Users can even create and customise graphs. Powered by Desmos graphing calculator, Equatio helps students to visualise and explore a written equation. As well as maths expressions, Equatio also lets you write complex physics and chemistry formulas.
This year, Texthelp is launching Mission Maths, a virtual event aimed at unlocking potential in the maths classroom. In this free PD event, educators can join a global line-up of experts to discover new ways of using technology to support and enhance STEM learning. During practical breakout sessions, webinars, demos and panel Q&As, you’ll learn strategies to make maths accessible to all students. You’ll leave with all the tools and skills you need to level up maths teaching and learning.
