As a student it came as a shock that i could not "type up a discussion post containing mathematical equations in MS word, and then paste my work into a Canvas discussion!

The canvas system seems an ill fit for technical and science education where we are dealing with mathematical equations all the time. 

 

I an countless other student users are very frustrated at this oversight.

 

It seems now, the only way around the problem is to purchase a subscription to something like Mathtype / or similar programs. 

 

I know that life was not meant to be easy, BUT it should not be this hard either!

 

Can "Canvas" PLEASE fix this HUGE issue and make the interface compatible with widely used Equation Editors such as MS Word etc..
