    Hi all,

    Ian's book is excellent for sure (I didn't had time to read it yet).

    However, it pays little attention to commercial solutions like WIRIS. You can find more information and a demo site on WIRIS formula editor, online calculator and math quizzes module in

    Hi Ramon and Mary,

    Many thanks for your comments. I thought it would be worth mentioning that the focus of the book is on free and/or open source tools for math(s) teaching. That's why I only give commercial products the briefest of mentions.

    Hope this helps,

    Ian.
