I am a new user to Articulate Quizmaker 9.0. Is there an equation editor that can be accessed within Quizmaker or must I create equations in Word and copy them into my quizzes via the slide view?

I too am seeking a way to include equations in Quizmaker and wondered what remedy you may have found other than creating them in Word or mathtype, saving them as an image and then bringing them into Quizmaker.

Glad that you'll be able to try Brian's approach! I'm not sure Dustin is subscribed to this thread, so you may want to PM him to see how his final project ended up.

I had to follow Brian's advice and create the equation in Word using the purchased "MathType" program which provides many more options than the standard Word equation editor. Honestly I found this all bit cumbersome and hope a more direct manner to deal with scientific equations is available sometime in the future.

I used word with MathType and I too found it too cumbersome and wish a more direct manner to deal with scientific equations was available. It's a shame that Quizmaker is not of use to math and natural science teachers. I hope the folks at Articulate remedy the issue but I'm not confident that it will happen.

Hi Dustin,

Quizmaker doesn't currently support an equation editor. With that being said, you can add math symbols in Quizmaker '09 in slide view:

1. Go to Slide view

2. Click the Insert tab

3. Click the Symbol button

4. Select "Symbol" from the Font drop down

You can then enter most types of math symbols this way.

If you're wanting to add more elaborate equations, you'll need to create them in Word, save them as an image, and then bring them into Quizmaker.

Dustin,

Thanks Brian. I'll give the Word approach a whirl.

Yes, I would also like some of those Math related characters.
