Math solver (MathSolver
) structured data
To help students, teachers, and others with math problems, you can use structured data to indicate the type of math problems and links to stepbystep walkthroughs for specific math problems. Here's an example of how math solvers may look in Google Search results (the appearance is subject to change):
How to add structured data
Structured data is a standardized format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content. If you're new to structured data, you can learn more about how structured data works.
Here's an overview of how to build, test, and release structured data. For a stepbystep guide on how to add structured data to a web page, check out the structured data codelab.
 Add the required properties. Based on the format you're using, learn where to insert structured data on the page.
 Follow the guidelines.
 Validate your code using the Rich Results Test and fix any critical errors. Consider also fixing any noncritical issues that may be flagged in the tool, as they can help improve the quality of your structured data (however, this isn't necessary to be eligible for rich results).
 Deploy a few pages that include your structured data and use the URL Inspection tool to test how Google sees the page. Be sure that your page is
accessible to Google and not blocked by a robots.txt file, the
noindex
tag, or login requirements. If the page looks okay, you can ask Google to recrawl your URLs.  To keep Google informed of future changes, we recommend that you submit a sitemap. You can automate this with the Search Console Sitemap API.
Examples
One solver action
Here's an example of a math solver home page that has one solver action that can solve polynomial equations and derivative problems and is available in English and Spanish.
<html> <head> <title>An awesome math solver</title> </head> <body> <script type="application/ld+json"> [ { "@context": "https://schema.org", "@type": ["MathSolver", "LearningResource"], "name": "An awesome math solver", "url": "https://www.mathdomain.com/", "usageInfo": "https://www.mathdomain.com/privacy", "inLanguage": "en", "potentialAction": [{ "@type": "SolveMathAction", "target": "https://mathdomain.com/solve?q={math_expression_string}", "mathExpressioninput": "required name=math_expression_string", "eduQuestionType": ["Polynomial Equation","Derivative"] }], "learningResourceType": "Math solver" }, { "@context": "https://schema.org", "@type": ["MathSolver", "LearningResource"], "name": "Un solucionador de matemáticas increíble", "url": "https://es.mathdomain.com/", "usageInfo": "https://es.mathdomain.com/privacy", "inLanguage": "es", "potentialAction": [{ "@type": "SolveMathAction", "target": "https://es.mathdomain.com/solve?q={math_expression_string}", "mathExpressioninput": "required name=math_expression_string", "eduQuestionType": ["Polynomial Equation","Derivative"] }], "learningResourceType": "Math solver" } ] </script> </body> </html>

Guidelines
For your page to be eligible for math solver rich results, you must follow these guidelines:
Technical Guidelines
 Add
MathSolver
structured data to the home page of your site.  Ensure that your host load settings allow for frequent crawls.
 If you have several identical copies of the same math solver hosted under different URLs, use the canonical URLs on each copy of the page.
 We don't allow math solvers that are entirely hidden behind a login or paywall. Once users navigate from the feature on Google to your site, the solution and a stepbystep walkthrough for their initial problem must be accessible to them. Additional content can be behind a login or paywall.
Content guidelines
We created these Math Solver content guidelines to ensure that our users are connected with learning resources that are relevant. If we find content that violates these policies, we'll respond appropriately, which may include taking manual action and removing your pages from appearing in the math solver experience on Google.
 We don't allow promotional content disguised as a math solver, such as those posted by a third party (for example, affiliate programs).

You are responsible for the accuracy and quality of your math solver through this
feature. If a certain amount of your data is found to be inaccurate based on our quality
review processes, then your solver may be removed from the feature until you resolve the
issues depending on the severity. This applies to:
 The accuracy of the problem types your solver is capable of solving.
 The accuracy of your solutions for math problems your solver declares it can solve.
Structured data type definitions
You must include the required properties for your content to be eligible for display as a rich result. You can also include the recommended properties to add more information to your structured data, which could provide a better user experience.
