PLEASE enable some form of equation editor or Math Type for SmartLab activities such as Smart Response, Monster Quiz and Game Shows.
Please enable an equation editor function for Smartlab activities. Currently not able to use any and this is prohibitive as Maths teachers cannot enter any maths functions. Originally Smart Response did have an equation editor and this was fantastic - but the new SR doesn't permit this which is a huge step backwards. Not practical to type up a function / equation / expression in something like word then snip it and save it and then import this as an image - that is far too clunky and time-consuming. Also the great activities in SmartLab do not have the ability to enter maths expressions.

For all of us middle and high school teachers that are receiving the SMART panels in every school in Palm Beach county...PLEASE make this happen. I tried to make a matching activity by typing one-step equations with the qwerty keyboard, but the activity turned them into 2 lines of text...very confusing for the students. We want to have the ability to create equations THAT LOOK like equations...raised to powers, longer division bars for expressions in numerator and denominator, square root symbols, etc.
