Geometers Sketchpad is an amazing desktop application for Math teachers to help visualize math and make it tangible for their students.
Now, it looks like they have an iPad version with included activities and workbooks for elementary math, early algebra and geometry – and it’s free!
HTML Codes for Mathematics
HTML codes to put mathematics characters on your Web page
The following list includes the HTML codes for mathematics characters not in the standard character set. Not all browsers support all the codes, so be sure to test your HTML codes before you use them.
Some Mathematics characters are part of the Unicode character set, so you need to declare that in the head of your documents:
<meta http-equiv=”content-type” content=”text/html;charset=utf-8″ />
Characters for Specific Languages and Uses:
Czech, Slovak, and Slovenian | French |German |Greek |Hawaiian |Italian |Polish |Romanian |Russian (Cyrillic) |Spanish |Turkish |
Currency Codes |Mathematical Codes |Punctuation Codes |Pronunciation Codes | Diacritics Codes |ASCII Codes Sub-Set

This page is for all of the Math Geeks (an affectionate term) out there who try to add equations and math problems on their teacher web pages. Without an online equation editor like this one, it can be a challenge to write equations in HTML.

Today, we’ll take a look at the benchmark exams available in UTIPS for the math teachers in Iron county. We’ll show you an alternate way to access these tests – other than copying the tests to a teachers UTIPS account – which has some vast benefits.
Today we’ll have a UTIPS Refresher training, with some special attention paid to Math teachers who at times need to use custom equations in their questions that, unfortunately, can’t be built within UTIPS anymore.
Let’s first start off here at my UTIPS Student Page: http://clint.utips.sedck12.org – head there and quickly take the short math quiz that I’ve prepared for you called Iron Math Test. We’ll use the data generated from your results to start our training with a review of the Reports area of your UTIPS accounts.
After the review of the basics (see attached document), we’ll show these teachers a few HTML formatting tips & tricks (see attached PDF document), how to use an Online Equation Editor/Generator, and how to use Wolfram Alpha to generate images of equation plots to use in their questions.
Here’s the notes from the Common Core Presentation at the UCTM Conference by David Smith, USOE Elementary Math Specialist, and Diana Suddreth, USOE Secondary Math Specialist. I’ve also included the audio recording of the presentation which matches up with the included time stamps. My apologies for the poor recording – it was the best my iPad microphone could do.
