Google Docs

There is more to Google Docs than word processing, presentations, and spreadsheets.

Here are some other things teachers and students can do with Google Docs.

Equations & Subscripts

Google Docs contains an equation editor for mathematics teachers and students. Google Docs also offers a subscript and superscript tool that can be used in writing chemical compounds and mathematics equations.

The equation editor, subscript, and superscript tools make it possible for math and science teachers and their students to use Google Docs for more of their document creations. With these three tools online collaborative document creation isn't limited to the humanities. Science and mathematics students can also collaborate to solve equations.


The Google Docs clipboard allows you to copy content from a spreadsheet and paste it to a document or presentation. Likewise, you can copy from a document and paste to a presentation or a spreadsheet cell.

The most important element of the Google Docs clipboard is that you can save multiple selections to your clipboard and access them at any time from any internet- connected computer.

The Google Docs clipboard option could be useful for editing the sequence of an outline or essay. Students can copy many elements to their clipboards and paste them onto a blank canvas in the order they want.

Quizzes and Surveys

Google Docs Forms allows teachers to create a quiz and post it online. All of answers submitted by students appear in an easy-to- grade spreadsheet.

Along the same lines of creating a quiz using Google Docs Forms, teachers and students can create surveys in Google Docs. Surveys can be embedded into a blog or website. All responses will appear in a spreadsheet. After all responses are collected users can choose from a variety of summation tools built into Google Docs Spreadsheets. The summation tools will create graphs of the survey responses.
