I love Hypatia Create. I use it daily as a math teacher and I find it to be the most powerful and user friendly math writing tool yet! I love that it matches font size to what you're currently working on and appreciate that once you've written a piece with it, you can easily edit it if needed. Excellent tool, have and will continue to recommend to peers!

Hypatia was a saving grace five years ago when I discovered it and advocated its use. I haven't used it much this year due to the classes I'm teaching, but I was shocked to discover I could no longer access it due to it becoming a subscription based service. I understand wanting to make money off of the work, but its primary strength and adoption (at least when I was advocating it to other teachers) was the fact it was the best free tool available. Unfortunately, there are other options. For this subscription to work, they really need to refine it. Dealing with how sluggish it is, how it didn't always render properly is one, and how finnicky it could be if you wanted to edit something you already placed is one thing while free, entirely another if you're paying for it.

As a high school math teacher that creates presentations every day for class, this extension has been a life saver! It makes it so easy to enter math notation, especially once you get the hang of the common short hands to quickly insert math notation. I use this it multiple times a day, every day. It makes creating tests and quizzes in google docs so easy as well. With the paid version, you can change the color of different parts of your math, and my students have told me that this feature is so helpful when learning about angle relationships, multiplying matrices, and so many other topics. This extension has made my life as a teacher so much easier and I cannot recommend it enough!

High School math teacher. I use this Hypatia app for Google Slides daily, and it allows me to copy equations or modifications from the previous work. (I used to write math equations from MS WORD, screenshots, and insert as an image!!) Here are the Corn of this APP; 1. I try to give two starts, but I can't submit review if I rate below 5 starts. 2. Hypatia doesn't allow the font size/thickness/color in "mini editor," so I have to open "Full Editor" if I want to color-code emphasizing letters (variables), and it takes FOREVER!!! 3. If I modify the equations, it takes a long time to update; seriously, it freezes often, and I have to restart the app consistently!!!! 4. I like to "animate" the solutions (so students will try first), but Hypatia automatically closes if I insert the "animate" feature. So I constantly go to "Extension" tap to re-open the app, and it also TAKES FOREVER!! It is not a fast-responding app. 5. Ultimately, I feel like I have arthritis in my fingers because I have to keep the editors open and closed. For this reason, I don't recommend this app, and I will try another app once I finish my subscription.

*Update My Hypatia extension no longer has the abilities it had since the Chrome browser has updated. If I click outside of the box while editing in Hypatia, it now closes everything I was working on. I can't use the mini editor for everything and the Hypatia box is no longer able to be moved. The position is only in the middle of the page I am working on and if I minimize the page, the box closes. This was great while it lasted. I paid for the subscription, but I will not be renewing it. My students cannot make copies of my slides anymore because the equations I insert from Hypatia no longer load. This is not okay and not at all what I paid for.

Overall, this is a very nice extension, especially because no built-in equation editor exists in Google Slides. However, it is quite slow, you cannot easily change the text color to a theme color without either finding the RGB or creating a new equation with the color already selected, and the final image sizes are inconsistent—this may or may not be a user error. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this app for anyone who needs to use equations in their presentation, whether it be Google Slides, Google Forms, or even Google Docs.

This is a very useful and well made tool, but I am not paying a monthly subscription for it. I'm going to be finding some other alternative.

Gives the ability of writing math equations and google slides does not posses the ability of writing math equations. My criticism is the importance of clicking the GUI's for mathematical notations. I understand not all things like logic symbols can be done on a keyboard, but I think typing "/" and "^" should output a fraction and an exponent respectively, as desmos does.
