What is SeatMath: Forms-Friendly Equation Editor?
SeatMath: Forms-Friendly Equation Editor is a Chrome extension created to simplify the process of math input into Google Forms and other web platforms. With a user-friendly editor, it allows high school students and teachers to transform equations into utf-8 encoded text. Students can showcase their step-by-step problem-solving in a workflow box, with the results copyable to any textbox. The extension supports a range of mathematical symbols and includes features for chemistry and language arts formatting such as italic, bold, and underline text options.
I created this extension to fill a need for my classroom. Students need to input math easily into plain textboxes like in google forms. They also need to be able to easily show their work. The students can make an equation in a friendly equation editor and the output is then changed into utf-8 encoded text that can be copied into any textbox (including google forms quizzes). They can also show their work in the workflow box and copy it all over to the clipboard to be pasted into a question on google forms that has been set to take paragraph answers. This allows students to work directly with forms instead of having to paste urls to images of their answers like with some other equation editors, which makes grading much less of a hassle. I have included support for the mathematical symbols that I use in my high school classes and support for chemistry. There is also support for adding italics, bold, and underline to text in google forms responses for language arts classes.
