Math Mode Basics (Part 1) Lesson 1: Getting into and out of Math Mode

Technical Skills → Math Mode


The Math Mode Basics Short Course series is designed for beginner users of TypeWell's Math Mode. The content mirrors and reinforces TypeWell's Math Tutorial (which can be accessed from the Math menu in the V7 Transcriber software program).

The audio and video files in each lesson provide ample opportunity for focused drill and practice. The drills are cumulative, incorporating skills mastered in previous lessons. This is the best way for you to train your mind and hands to use the keyboard efficiently while you're in Math Mode.

This is the FIRST of SIX lessons in Math Mode Basics (Part 1):

Lesson 1 − Getting into and out of Math Mode
Lesson 2 − Arithmetic Operators
Lesson 3 − Fractions and Mixed Numbers
Lesson 4 − Variables and Exponents
Lesson 5 − Putting it All Together
