LaTeX is a typesetting system that allows publishing with emphasis on content over layout. It is especially suited for generating complex mathematical formulas instead of formula editors in most office suites, as well as creating large publications. Google Docs supports basic functions of LaTeX. LaTeX plugins are available for GMail.

There is also MathML, a standard designed for web pages, but is not as widely adopted, currently being overshadowed by MathJax.

Mathematics Education

Quality mathematics teachers are essential to properly educating today’s youth for a world that is increasingly pervaded by mathematics and mathematical-like reasoning. Below you will find mathematics education related-links to resources for the future (or current) mathematical educator. Many educators now strive to integrate many fields of study into groups such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

Update, Summer 2016: According to the EQAO (2014) in their “EQAO Provincial Assessments 2014”, math scores for grade 3 and 6 had a four- and seven-point decrease, respectively. The results would be a catalyst for discussions between the government, policy-makers, educators, and other relevant parties in the coming years.
