MathType + Hot Potatoes = Math exercises for mobile devices too
Scenarios like I'm about to describe are all too common. You've given your students a math exercise for them on their class iPads. You thought they understood the material, but the results were not good. It's not until a student asks you a question do you discover why. Some of the math symbols are being displayed incorrectly on the students' iPads -- yet the exercise looked fine on your computer.
Hot Potatoes is a popular software application for building practice exercises for the web. It has had math capability for some time, but its math capability is dependent on the MathML language. MathML is a great solution, but browser compatibility is currently limited, and often will not work on mobile devices.
Fortunately you can now use MathType to add math to your Hot Potatoes exercises that will work in all browsers, including mobile devices! By using MathType with Hot Potatoes, it's much easier to add math than it has ever been.
