Math Expressions and Graphs in Google Docs with g(Math)

Last week, I wrote about a tutorial on how to create math expressions in a Google Forms using Latex. Embedding of Latex in Google Docs documents can be made using the new g(Math) Google Docs Add On. Although Google Docs has a built in equation editor, the addition of Latex through g(Math) can make embedding of more complicated equations possible.

In addition to Latex, you can also create graphs using g(Math). Once you have added this add on, you can create graphs using the side bar of your Google Docs window.

Watch John McGowan, creater of g(Math), demonstrates how to use g(Math) on Google Docs.

For those who are not familiar with Latex, it is a typesetting system used to create scientific documents. It can also be used to create complicated math expressions. You can read my introduction and brief tutorial about latex in case you don’t know about it.


How to Create Math Expressions in Google Forms

Many of us use Google Forms to make surveys, but did you know that you can insert equations in Google Forms?  Google Forms now support latex which means that you can insert any complex equation you want. In the example below, we will use Google Form to create a math quiz with algebraic expressions/equation.

How to Create Math Expressions Using Google Forms

1.) Go to Google Forms.

2.) Type the Title and Description of your quiz.

3.) Select the question type. Note that you can select from various types of questions: text, paragraph text, multiple choice, check boxes, etc. » Read more

How to Create Desmos Graphs with Sliders in 3 Steps

Desmos Calculator is one of the great free calculators available online. You can use it to create graphs, plot table of data, evaluate equations and even explore transformations.  But my favorite feature of Desmos are the sliders. Recently, they have added an animation feature for sliders.

In this post, I am going to show you how easy it is to create Desmos graphs with sliders in order to explore family of functions. To follow this tutorial, go to the Desmos website.

How to Create Desmos Graphs with Sliders in 3 Steps

Step 1

Type the equation of the function you want to graph.  For example, you want to graph y = a(x - 3)^2 + h. Just type

y = a(x-3)^2 + k.  » Read more
