The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce you to the basics of constructing a document containing MathML. It is not a complete reference to the elements or presentational mark-up available, but should suffice in providing a grounding for further study.

More information can be found on the MathJax website

In the latest versions of the most popular browsers, the only one to support MathML natively is Firefox. IE has never supported it, and Chrome has dropped support for the technology as the functionality is provided by a JavaScript library known as MathJax.

To include the relevant JavaScript library, it is possible to do so from a https: connection to ensure compatibility with Blackboard and other sites which may block non-secure connections for imports.

To include the JavaScript library add this script in the html document:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

alternatively you can host your own version within the materials, however the folder size for the library is around 30MB so not really practical for inclusion to each RLO.
