# How to add Accessible Mathematics to your rise course. (Including Super and Sub Scripts and Formulas)

Aug 01, 2017

Edit 1: Updated with JS to check for dynamically created content.

Edit 2: Updated with /content/lib/main.bundle.js script injection needed for continue buttons and other dynamic content.

Here are the steps to follow for creating accessible Math in rise:

- Use the following site to create your math latex formula: https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php and to confirm the equation displays the way you want. An example of a formula might be x^{2} = \frac{2}{y} which is “x² = 2 / y”
- Copy your latex formula into Rise where you want it, but add “$$” before and after, so: $$x^{2} = \frac{2}{y}$$
- Do this for all equations until you publish.
- After publishing, extract the zip file and open index.html
- After the <head> tag, insert the following Javascript:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script src='https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mathjax/2.7.0/MathJax.js?config=TeX-MML-AM_CHTML'></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

// Inspect the array of MutationRecord objects to identify the nature of the change

function mutationObjectCallback(mutationRecordsList) {

mutationRecordsList.forEach(function(mutationRecord) {

if ("attributes" === mutationRecord.type) {

}

});

MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Typeset",MathJax.Hub]);

}

// Create an observer object and assign a callback function

var observerObject = new MutationObserver(mutationObjectCallback);

// the target to watch, this could be #yourUniqueDiv

// we use the body to watch for changes

var targetObject = document.body;

// Register the target node to observe and specify which DOM changes to watch

observerObject.observe(targetObject, {

attributes: true,

attributeFilter: ["id", "dir"],

attributeOldValue: true,

childList: true

});

</script>

6. Finally, in /content/lib/main.bundle.js search for the following code:

return e.createElement("div", null, this.props.children)

and add the following right before it:

MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Typeset",MathJax.Hub]);

Another +1 for a Rise math equation editor

+1 for an Equation editor in Rise (please!)

+1 to formulas editor in Rise

I work for a medical association, and having a built-in formula editor in Rise to add formulas in-line would

reallyhelp us -- especially for our physics-related content.I can see many others have been requesting this feature for quite some time. Are there any plans to incorporate such a feature?

Thanks for asking about this feature, Wes. A mathematical equations feature isn't on our roadmap for Rise 360 right now, but we'll let you know if that changes!

Thank you for your response, Alyssa. I'll keep the Articulate 360 roadmap page bookmarked!

Oof another +1, could really make things easier right now

Given the current need for online learning due to COVID 19, I think Articulate should really consider putting this on a very short term roadmap!

Thanks John for you efforts. We do need a proper math editor in Rise though. This solution is not scalable across dev teams and faculty at our institution.

This discussion is good. However, let's avoid band-aids. RISE needs a robust in-built math editor. That would be fabulous new feature. I hope the RISE dev team is monitoring this discussion.

Thanks for your note, Eric. We keep our eyes on every request we receive in the E-Learning Heroes community. I appreciate you sharing that this feature is important to you!

+1 for adding support for equations in Rise!

+1 Institution for a math editor in Articulate 360 - I was just getting ready to load up the credit card with purchases of 360. It must be very difficult as a Staff member monitoring these boards to say that it's not on the roadmap yet year after year. A math editor in a teaching and learning tool seems so obvious. I am really surprised by this. Does the development team have a sense of how much business is lost by not implementing this critical teaching and learning tool?

This has been "on the roadmap" for years. Why isn't this a feature yet?

Agree with Math Notermans

Does anyone know why Rise is taking so long to add this feature? I mean, it's one of the most important in our work. What's so difficult about simply adding an Equations Block that's just similar to Microsoft Word that we can insert and work on equations from?

Hi Emmanuel,

I can propose one workaround: use the online version of Microsoft Word - accessible by logging in to office.com - and grab the <iframe> code to insert the equation as an Embed block in Rise ( note: Google Docs also has a similar feature).

To access the embed code from the online version of Word, you can go to File > Share > Embed.

You may then copy the code and paste it into Rise via the Embed block as shown here:

Microsoft adds a few more parameters into the <iframe> code. Be sure to retain only the basic <iframe> code. Otherwise, Rise might not accept it.

My team, 25 developers needs math equation functionality. We are working on digitalizing general subjects curricula for Lebanese vocational and technical education. And there is more work to come! Please, this feature is nesessary in Rise!

This is a ridiculous amount of technical work when Articulate should just finally include a Math editor. I don't understand why this hasn't been a top priority.

agreed 100%

+1 for Maths editor (accessibility is a must).

+1 for a Equation editor in Rise

Hi John, Thanks for the MathJax version 3 of the script from a few years ago. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be working now - the equations will only render after a browser refresh/reload. Do you (or anyone else for that matter) have a new version of the script?
