Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Advanced Maths Tools.

Template:Moodle 2.0


NOTE: The tools discussed in these pages are, at this time (August 2011), considered to be "third-party plugins". They are not core, as yet, and still need to be thoroughly tested under more stringent conditions i.e. by users of all sorts. If interested, please follow the links below and download the package that suits your situation and use it in good faith. Any issues or problems can be discussed in the Mathematics Tools Forum.

Introduction

In August of 2011, Mauno Korpelainen released his long-awaited Maths integration package, named SEE. Mauno successfully integrated a number of Maths tools onto Moodle 2.1. These tools include Geogebra, JSXGraph, Math, MathML, MathTran, tex, DragMath, Geonext, JSQuery, MathJax. Mauno had also included a version of TinyMCE that has, as native, a Maths editing toolbar. The pages that follow are a guide to downloading, installing and using the plugins.

Download

At this time, the files are not available from Moodle's Downloads area, but no doubt they will be soon enough. In the meantime, you can download the files you require from Mauno's site.

There are two packages, which are both zip files, available from MplugA and MplugB.

MplugA

At 70MB, MpluA is the larger of the two files, but it contains a lot of files not available in MplugB.

MplugB

MplugB is 52.4MB in size and contains all the same features are MplugA except it does not include Mathjax.
