If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a movie is worth a thousands pictures, and, consequently, a movie is worth a million words!
You may view our new Video Library for an ever-expanding set of help videos on LiveMath and PrintMath.
We used to have a library of help videos called Ask Sally, but those videos are pretty old, and the system that
presented it was pretty antiquated.
LiveMath was previously named MathView, which was before that named Theorist. For these previous versions,
there were two documentation sources.
- MathView User's Guide PDF. Order Print Copy from Lulu Press
This text was a completely fresh text written by N. Scott Hoffner for Waterloo Maple, the new owners of Theorist → MathView.
It is a mixture of Learning Guide and Reference Manual, but leaning towards Learning Guide.
The Learning Guide was meant to teach novice users how to use the Theorist software. The Resource Manual
was written by the programming team as a comprehensive explanation of the Theorist software system.
Although a lot has changed
Theorist 2.0 → MathView 2.5 → LiveMath 3.0 → LiveMath 3.5 → LiveMath 3.6
there is still a lot of good information in these older texts. The PDFs are offered for free, or you may order
the printed copies from Lulu for a nominal fee, shipped to you in about 1 week.
One might think that going all the way back to Version 1.1 of Theorist is a stretch, but the (nearly) original version of the
Learning Guide and Reference Manual actually contain some real gems about the Theorist→MathView→LiveMath software system.
So, for completeness, we added this first version into our library. The PDFs are offered for free, or you may obtain
paper printed copies from Lulu for a nominal fee, shipped to you in about 1 week.
PrintMath was previously named MathEQ, which was before than named Expressionist, which had 1 historical documentation source:
