Getting to know some of the Show Your Work Tools:

Select: This tool allows students to select, reshape, resize, and rotate any image or object on the Show Your Work canvas. This is also the tool the system will default to when exiting a text field or a math field.

Pan: This tool lets students move around the canvas to create more space to work. Show Your Work is infinite, so students can truly work without limits!

Change text / line size, color, and quality: Click on the top tool in the toolbar to adjust the size and color of both lines AND text!

Pro Tip: Toggle "Opacity" to the left to create a highlighter effect. Perfect for annotating a text or diagram!

Add Image: Select this tool to search Google Images, add an image or document from your device, Google Drive, or even use your built-in camera!

Add Ruler / Protractor: Click this tool to add a ruler and/or a protractor, these can be dragged to any position on the board, and they can also be rotated.

Ellipsis: Select this tool to move the math keyboard
