Often we view yelling at a computer a bad thing, but with Backpack Practice hollering at your computer can be a good thing. Backpack Practice allows students to test their ability in Science, Math, History, Foreign Languages, and more. Students have to verbally respond to each question in these fields and Backpack Practice can tell them if they are wrong or right.

One of the toughest parts of being a math teacher is creating quizzes and tests online. All too often the programs we use are not math friendly and can not create the correct looking equations. Edmodo found a nice way around this by allowing LaTeX (a document markup language) to work within its quizzes. Teachers can create just about any math formula thinkable on the Online LaTeX Equation Editor and then copy and paste the code into a Edmodo quiz. The only trick is that you have to put the copy between the 'math' tags, e.g. the LaTeX code of x^{2}=100 would be entered into Edmodo like this: [math]x^{2}=100[/math]. The math tags let Edmodo know you are trying to enter in a LaTeX equation. This may sound tricky, but if you watch the tutorial below, you can see how truly easy it can be!
