Hello Jeffrey,
	I, to be honest, think that such application has no fit in an educational 
project. Since teaching is not its goal at all. Nevertheless it would be very 
usefull, and essentially has the same interest you seem to have, if you work 
in KFormula for the KOffice suite. Which basically aims to provide a nice way 
to represent formulas in documents (either by itself or as an embedded 
document inside another one). You can find us at #koffice channel in the 
freenode ( irc.freenode.org ).
	Hope to se you there, we are nice people ;)... 		and we need help.
