I can't seem to find any general description of how to use MathObjects and where this new thing is coming from.

Re: MathObjects

by Davide Cervone -
You can begin by reading the POD documents on MathObjects, in particular the one for UsingMathObjects and MathObjectAnswerCheckers. These are somewhat out of date, but everything there should still work, it's just that there are better ways to do some things now, and some of the "something needs to be done about this" comments have had something done about them. There are also a lot of features that are not documented there at all.

You might also look at the Union College problem library for examples that use MathObjects. Most of those problems have been rewritten to use the MathObject library. Finally, there are examples in this forum. You might search for "->cmp", for instance, as that will catch most of the interesting MathObject example snippets in the forum. (You will want to use an advanced search and look for this exact phrase, or put quotes around it so that the -> will be included properly)

Hope that helps.
