How do I insert a math equation using the Rich Content Editor?
Instructors and students can use either Canvas' equation editor or an external tool, EquatIO, to insert math equations or scientific formulas into various areas in WebCampus-Canvas. Both features can be accessed via Canvas' Rich Content Editor which is available in tools such as assignments, discussions, and quizzes.
EquatIO allows you to use more advanced features such as speech input for generating equations, more advanced math functions, scientific calculations, and predictive formula. Additional information on how to use both tools can be found below.
Canvas' Equation Editor
To insert an equation using EquatIO:
- Click on the More External Tools icon (blue v) in the Rich Content Editor.
- Select Insert EquatIO Equation from the list of external tools.
- The EquatIO window will appear where you can create your equation. (An EquatIO quick reference guide is available for help using the tool and for links to EquatIO support and training.)
- Once you are done generating your equation, click on Insert Math to insert the equation into Canvas.
