EquatIO: A free digital math tool for UWindsor

Schedule: Thursday, October 13, 2022, 02:00 PM – 02:45 PM
Location: Online (Blackboard Collaborate)
Instructors: Mark Lubrick
The premium version of EquatIO is free for everyone at UWindsor and is an ideal tool for anyone looking for digital math tools. You can take a picture of written math and convert it to digital, editable equations, or if you prefer, just handwrite in the app itself and it will convert it to digital. The screenshot function will take any math on the web and make it accessible and editable. You can even speak your equations aloud and have them created. Of course, there is also a more traditional equation editor (LaTeX is supported, too) with a prediction feature to finish your equations, chemical symbols, and more. Some additional free features include a scientific calculator, an interactive periodic table, an interactive molecular viewer, a graph creator/editor, and an online space to work with interactive shapes.

Did you know that all UWindsor students, faculty, and staff now have free access to a powerful literacy support application?
Read&Write is a suite of software tools designed to assist in the areas of research, studying, and of course, reading and writing. Whether used in conjunction with Google Chrome or as a standalone application, Read&Write can convert your spoken notes or assignments into text, as well as read your text and .PDFs out loud. This application is also helpful with Blackboard exams, online journal articles, as well as e-mails and typed assignments.
