A Question For All The Scribes
I found this comment on Manny's Scribe Post below. It's addressed to all the scribes in our class. That means all of you. Let's work together on this and teach others what you've learned. (I'm so proud of all of you!)
Congratulations to all the scribes - you've been doing some excellent work lately (and maybe helping me convince the math teachers at my school to try having scribe posts).
I have a question for all the scribes: I was wondering what software you are using to generate the math symbols, equations, etc. in your scribe posts? I can tell that you are creating it and saving it as an image, then uploading the image to Blogger, but not what software you are using. About the only thing that we have (that I know of) that could do something similar would be using the equation editor in PowerPoint, and then saving the slide (or just the equation) as an image, but that's pretty clunky. Do you have any software you can recommend (preferably free)?
Also, I notice you often use tables to put borders around items - are you generating the HTML by hand for that, or using something else?
Any ideas you are willing to share would be appreciated. Keep up the good work - you are setting a great example not only for other students around the world, but for their teachers.
