Inserting MathML into a Question using the Rich Text Toolbar's Math Editor

The Learnosity math editor allows you to easily input math expressions into any Question. This expands the types of Questions you can use to deliver your math and science content. 

The math editor can be found in any field that contains the rich text toolbar, and is denoted by the uppercase sigma symbol (Σ):

By default, the math markup language used by the math editor is set to LaTeX. To change from LaTeX to MathML, select MathML from the drop-down menu in the bottom right corner of the editor.

Now you will be able to enter math markup in the MathML field. Underneath, you can select Edit ARIA label to input a custom label. For MathML input, the field is not populated automatically. This text label is saved with the Question and added to the page when the Question is loaded. This replaces the MathJax assistive MathML and is treated like any ARIA label by the assistive technology. See our article on creating accessible math for more information.
