IntroductionDragMath is a free "drag and drop" equation editor. It is a Java applet which can simply run within a web browser on most computers. The editor lets users build up mathematical expressions in a traditional two dimensional way, and then output the results in a correctly formed syntax. This is not so easy: mathematical notation contains some ambiguities. Still, we appear to be stuck with traditional notation for the foreseeable future, see for example this article for some comments on notation. This gives some idea of the design of DragMath. Integrations with a VLE such as Moodle Moodle is a free, open source course management system (CMS). If you are interested in using DragMath with Moodle, or a similar system such as LonCAPA, etc then please review the DragMath and Moodle page or the more general Integration page before downloading.Output FormatsDragmath can output a mathematical expression in many formats. The supplied output formats are MathML, LaTeX, Maple, Maxima. It is also possible to convert the expression to almost any user defined style by creating an XML file with the correct syntax data in it. Details of how to do this are included in the documentation. LanguagesAlthough mathematics is less dependent on language than many things, the applet loads a language file which makes it possible to translate DragMath into other languages. DragMath has currently been translated into: Catalan, Czech, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Turkish, Spanish and Swedish. The latest language files can be downloaded from here. Export to ImageDragMath makes use of the MathTran service to automatically convert expressions to images. More details of MathTran available at www.mathtran.org DragMath has a project on GitHubhttps://github.com/maths/dragmathYou are very welcome to use and modify this source code within the terms of the DragMath license. If you would like to contribute your changes please email the developers directly. DownloadDownload the latest version - . See the version history here. DragMath requires Java 1.4.2 or later. If you do not have it, you can download it from www.java.com. Description DragMath is a drag and drop equation editor in the form of a Java applet. Once an expression is created the user can convert it into a variety of different linear syntax for mathematics, including MathML, LaTeX, Maple, Maxima or any user defined style.
