Math and science for Canvas

Easily include maths formulas in your content within Canvas by Instructure.

  • Create mathematical formulas with a visual editor (WYSIWYG)

Activating WIRIS LTI application in your Canvas course enhances your text editor with new icons to edit math equations and chemical formulas with WIRIS EDITOR.

 



How does it work?

Just click on the new WIRIS icons that appear in your rich text editor toolbar. A WIRIS EDITOR window will pop up. Create a scientific expression formula with the classical interface or handwrite it.

When you click on Accept, your expression will be converted into an image and displayed along with your other content.
