Introduction to Math Blogging

Ron Fredericks writes: “Introduction to Math Blogging ” is a short overview of the WordPress Math Publisher plugin. Get an overview of the plugin from this video. Some topics include:

  • What is it
  • How to install it
  • How to use it, and
  • Support and the software development release cycle

To create short flexible videos like this one, go to LectureMaker’s design and purchase page

Get a copy of the plugin from the WordPress.org Plugin site: wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmathpub/

I include some comments on the WordPress developer ecosystem as a model to learn from and perhaps emulate:

  • Automation of the submission process for new plugins
  • Automation of the community metrics and satisfaction the use of individual plugins
  • Online engineering tools to help developers track milestones during the plugin’s lifecycle (ALM)
  • Use of forums for community support between developers and users of plugins

I encourage the viewer to consider that increased use of math is necessary in today’s competitive global economy. Using a blog with math publishing features is one way to support this effort.

Usage

As an example, when I embedded the wpmathpub [pmath size=xx] tag into my blog post — like this:

Code (mathtext)
  1. [pmath size=16](a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2[/pmath]
  2.  
  3. Where:
  4. [pmath size=12]~a[/pmath] is defined as a variable
  5. [pmath size=12]~b[/pmath] is defined as a variable

I get the following mathematical equation displayed in my blog post:

(a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2

where:
~a is defined as a variable
~b is defined as a variable

The video was designed, acted in, and edited by Ron Fredericks; while the video was produced and directed by Alex Gershowitz; in LectureMaker’s Sunnyvale Video Studio

I invite the viewer to pick up a copy of “Numerical Recipes” if they are using math equations in their blog posts:
