### Double Click to Zoom - Using MathJax Math Settings

Reading math online is sometimes difficult. For example,

The Flat World Knowledge website uses MathJax to render and display math elements on the web. If you

**RIGHT CLICK**a math object you will be presented with a number of options.
Choose

**Math Settings >> Zoom Trigger >> Double-Click**
After doing this, you will be able to double click on a math element and it will zoom to 200% (or whichever zoom factor you choose.)

Click the zoomed in picture and it will go away and you can continue reading.

**Elementary Algebra**textbook. You can still find worksheets in the course page found on this site.http://edunettech.blogspot.com/p/elementary-algebra-textbook.html

Also,

**Intermediate Algebra**will be published very soon. I am excited for folks to check that out... it came out quite good. It is written as a perfect blend of the traditional and graphical approaches to the subject. No CAS required but certainly encouraged! In addition, I kept to a modular design so as to maximize the use of the FWK MIYO "make it your own" system.Finally... truly viable alternatives to the existing expensive algebra textbooks currently on the market!
