Accessible Math!

Thanks to the QIAT community for this tip

The problem: a special educator is looking for help finding a math solution for an 8th grade student with motor limitations who does not use pencil/paper and types (somewhat) with an iPad.

Options to consider:
  1. Nuten for iPad (requires iOS 8). This is FREE math keyboard app (also for iPhone/iPod). From iTunes: "You can create and save your equations for later reference. From algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus to physics and chemistry, Nuten covers it all." One review indicates Nuten was developed by the same team who designed the MathX Chrome extension for desktop computing.
  2. Efofex suite of tools. Efofex has numerous keyboard-based math software options. It is also FREE for students with disabilities for home and school use through its Empower program.
