Overview
Thanks for your interest in g(Math)! But, before installing, take a look at our new Chrome Extension, EquatIO, which takes g(Math) to the next level. Here is a link to check out EquatIO: https://goo.gl/G0yCQH

If after checking out EquatIO you still want to install g(Math), that’s great! But, just a head’s up, we’ll eventually be retiring g(Math). So, we recommend making the switch to EquatIO early so that you can start exploring the future of digital math.

Now students at all levels - and their teachers - can include mathematical formulas and equations, graphs and statistical displays with this friendly Add-on for Google Docs, Sheets and Forms.


Write virtually any mathematical expression directly on your PC or Chromebook’s keyboard or touchscreen. Input’s easy: you don’t need to know any math code or programming languages. g(Math) understands what you’re typing, instantly turning your expressions into clear, accurate on-screen formulas. 


You can save even more time by picking from a huge range of ready-made formulas and functions, including quadratic equations, matrices and more. Then insert your expression into any spreadsheet cell or doc with a simple click. 


If you’d prefer to dictate or handwrite your equations or formulas, there is a Speech Input function and a Handwriting Entry tool within the Add-on. With these features, you can cater the tool to your unique learning style.


It’s just as easy and rewarding to create clear, colourful graphs, from simple linear relationships to complex trigonometric expressions. Type or pick a function, choose your axes and zoom range - then click to insert.


g(Math) can create graphs from data in spreadsheet cells, or plot directly from a list of points you enter. And it can instantly visualise statistical data as histograms, bar charts and box-and-whisker plots, too. 

g(Math) is ideal for students of all ages and attainment levels. Through integration with Texthelp’s Read&Write literacy software, math expressions created in g(Math) can now be read aloud, just like any other content on the page.

Don't get me wrong, it's works,..just as long you don't use any complicated signs like µ for example.

Hi Philip, you can type \mu then tab in the Simple tab to make mu.

Edit: problem can be fixed by using advanced category, but it's a real time killer compared to the other one...

I can copy, paste or directly write my favorite Latex expressions. That's all I need! Guess the next updates will make this add-on even better.

it is cool,it can even plot y^2 = x^3 + ax + b (elliptic curve)

Good, but can be improved, Maybe allow to use scroller on simple tab, and allowance of changing font size on the simple tab (maybe under the equation input or something)

Hi Joshua, thanks! We are releasing an update on April 4 that will address both of these issues. You will have much more horizontal space and there will be an option for font size.

Couldn't get it to work, requires some form of registration. There must be better options.

Hi Christoph, we use the registration to give us the ability to contact you with updates and solicit feedback that is pertinent to the level you teach. If the registration bothers you, you can sign up as a student and we collect no information and the registration skips to to the end.

I love the idea but I can't get my equations to insert onto my Google Doc. I get an error message: "You did not select math created with g(Math)." There is no insert button! Please help...

Hi Beverly, Slides is definitely on our radar and high on our roadmap. We have some big things planned for April 4th release and Slides will be on deck after we do that update!

PROS: The equation editor portion works well and is fairly intuitive for relatively basic mathematical expressions (I haven't yet tried more involved symbols like sigma notation or definite integrals). Similarly the graph creator is simple and easy to use when plotting y as a function of x. CONS: There seems to be little control what the equation will look like when it is inserted into the document. Often my equations are stretched and skewed such that the text is distorted and/or the size is either very large or very small. Deleting the equation and reinserting sometimes corrects the problem. In the graphing feature, there does not appear to be a way to plot x as a function of y, or to plot things that are not functions at all (like circles and other conic sections).

The built in google-doc equation editor is sorely lacking, being able to use latex with gMath is welcome, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the expressions to simply use the font size of my document so that I don't have to manually and imprecisely scale down my equation by hand for each new one I introduce to my document. I'm thinking of entirely ditching google docs and redoing my paper in MSWord - or switching to native LaTeX ... anyway, I may be missing it, but it's certainly not clear how to do this. Eg. 1+2+3+\ldots+n=\frac{n(n+1)}{2} appears giant in my doc compared to my doc's pt size of 11.

Hi James, we are working on the next update that will allow for better formatting of math within Docs. You could use \text{your text here} as a bad workaround currently or just type \ to create a text area in the math. If you share a Doc with me, I can help with that formatting.
