As David Carlisle announced, a new working draw for MathML 3 is out. This version of MathML attempts to make writing the various elementary math notations such as 2-d addition and multiplication, along with long division much easier and just as importantly, accessible to people with vision disabilities. We have tried to get input from people around the world on what notations they use. Please take a look at http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML3/chapter3.html#presm.elemmath.examples to see if the notations you learned are represented there. If not, please send an example (you can draw it by hand and scan it in). Any additional commentary on alignment, how long lines should extend, etc., would very appreciated. Also, the section on Long Division http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML3/chapter3.html#presm.mlongdiv mentions some countries the particular style of long division is used in. If you know of a country missing from one of those lists, please send that along. Elementary math notations have quite a bit of variety around the world. We will be able to add some, but we will never get all of them handled. However, it would be good to at least collect them so that we know what needs to be done in future versions if we don't get them in MathML 3.
