I am very excited about the new EquatIO LTI plugin that will seamlessly integrate with Canvas. This new app will be a game changer for math and science teachers and their students who want to create accessible (read aloud) digital math right from the Rich Content Editor. Here’s a quick preview of how it will work. To get started, simply…(Show moreShow less)
I had some faculty interested in allowing students to scan and submit handwritten work to their online courses. Creating a Canvas assignment that only accepts JPG pictures that students take with their phones wasn't good enough because instructors can't use the SpeedGrader (DocViewer) to annotate student work. So the solution we have now is…
Hi all! I have several teachers who use MyOpenMath (MOM) through Canvas. Recently, they've noticed that students can access MOM on their tablets through the Canvas app, but not through their phones. In fact, when I added Canvas Student to my mobile devices, I can't view MOM assignments in either (under the "Submission" tab, I click "Launch…(Show moreShow less)
Thank you! According to the teacher, it works on iPads and other tablets, but not on student phones in the app. I'm following up with her to see if students are using the app on their tablets (which just perpetuates my question), or if they are using the browser (which I think answers my question).
I added the Geogebra graphing LTI and whilst I would like to have the option of it on a page, it works well on a module. The only issue I have is that size of it. On our Canvas page there is a HUGE white space not being used at least 1/3 of the available page is empty. Is this just me? Anyone know how to improve on this?
Hi, I'm currently designing a question (with 3 to 4 sub-questions) for my students using Formula Question. I would like to know how can I reuse a randomly generated number (say [x] = 100) in the first sub-question to the second sub-question. For some reasons, these four questions have some connections. I need to reuse the randomly generated number.…(Show moreShow less)
Perhaps I'm missing them, but I'm looking for ways to write line segments, lines, and rays in correct notation with the equation editor and I can't find them under the headings. Are they some place? If not, will these eventually be available?
Hello, Canvas folks. Our little company is looking for people who would be willing to field test a new math product that we are working on. It extends the functionality of Canvas to that of a MyMathLab or WebAssign. It is 100% embedded within canvas via LTI, with no need for access cards or separate accounts for students or instructors. It's a…(Show moreShow less)
Synopsis This blog post will show how to look up values in a formula question that can't be generated directly. In particular, it will show how to look up critical values from a student's T distribution to generate a confidence interval. It is extendable to other situations. Introduction I was trying to create a formula question that would ask…(Show moreShow less)
I'm the Canvas admin for our school district and I've been put on the team for our Middle and High School Math adoption committee. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Math curriculum that will interface with Canvas. Whether they have an LTI compatible app or some Common Cartridge materials that can be loaded up into Canvas. Really…(Show moreShow less)
I am trying to figure out a way to use formulas to ask questions regarding solving quadratic functions. I wrote some questions that ask for the discriminant but am stuck on how to write any relating to solving a quadratic. Thanks for any help, Julie
Thank you so much! I was running into all the problems you stated, that is why I thought I would reach out & see if there was a way I overlooked. I was able to write questions giving the roots and asking for the coefficients of a certain term (quadratic, linear, or the constant). Almost all of my assessments are formula generated but sometimes…
