If you have a need to use matrices in your Moodle, Geoffrey Rowland recently published the Matrix Editor plugin that looks to contain everything you need to get TeX/MathJax Matrices and Arrays on the screen for your learners with ease in Atto.

To author and edit a matrix, you need to use the MathJax or TeX filters and, as stated on, the plugin:

includes templates for 1xn 2xn, 3xn and mxn matrices and a range of brackets and braces.

A few admin points to remember if you’re going to use the Matrix Editor:

  1. Enable the Mathjax or TeX filter – you can enable both if you are Moodling in 2.8 or later
  2. Enable the editor/filter in the course that you are using it for
  3. Add the Matrix Editor icon/button to the Atto toolbar

You may also need to clear you caches after installing the plugin to get it to appear correctly.
