Mathematical Content for the Web

This website provides a overview on How to Create, View and Listen to Math Content on the Web.

Mathematics is a core branch of education and is required in most other educational fields. In general, mathematical education involves the use of symbols, operators, etc. that are very unique to Mathematical Studies. With the advent of the World Wide Web, more and more Math teachers want to use the Internet as a means of pedagogy between them and their students. However, using these symbols, operators, etc. used, is generally quite complex and, therefore, most of the time cannot be rendered on the World Wide Web using Standard HTML format. The W3C recommends the use of MathML to display math content on the web. MathML not only makes it easier to display math content on the web, but also makes it accessible to students with a multitude of learning styles.
