Tools for making a math website

By Murray Bourne, 31 Aug 2008

I received a mail from a reader asking about how I made the Interactive Mathematics site:

Your website is extremely well designed and quite a help for students to understand basic concepts. I came across it as I was searching for some information to assist my daughter with calculus.

I was planning a similar web site for physics. My request to you, if you can share, what tools you used to set up this web site.

I wrote a post a few years ago that pretty much answers the question: Producing mathematics for the Web.

Considering what I said in that article, I am still working on the forum idea. It needs to be different from the existing forums out there, otherwise, what's the point?

Also, I talked about using MathML for math input on the web. It is still not in general use on browsers. You may be interested in phpMathPublisher, but I don't use this any more.

Good luck with your physics site!

    Anoop - your comment is a poorly disguised advertisement for your site. What's this "I come to know about..."?

    If you want to promote your site effectively, you'll need to be more subtle.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
