Audrey Markowskei recently took on the tricky challenge of moving to paperless assignments in a Mathematics unit. Jorge Reyna from the LTC participated in the evaluation of various apps and platforms, as featured on Teche. In this post Audrey offers her own reflections on the trial.
Mathematical equations and formulas are not easy to type on a typical computer keyboard. That is why students have never massively embraced software to write maths. Academics working in this area normally have to use sophisticated software based on LaTex (a mark-up language) to write mathematical formulas – something that has a steep learning curve.
