New for education sites: Practice problems and Math solvers structured data

Thursday, March 25, 2021

According to Unesco, nearly 1.5 billion learners had their education disrupted due to COVID-19. Almost overnight, students, parents, and educators had to adapt to new learning norms. Many folks turned to Google for help finding educational and learning resources and we are committed to supporting ways to help people find what they're looking for.

In this post, we provide details to help you implement structured data on your practice problem and math solver pages to make your pages eligible to feature on Google Search as rich results (please note that being eligible does not guarantee that your site will show up in search results). We also provide rich results status reports to help you make sure that your implementation is correct.

Practice content and math assistance have been some of the most requested information from learners. Practice material helps users gauge their mastery of a concept while a solver provides explanations to help a user get unstuck while doing math problems. Both features present an opportunity for sites with either material to increase brand awareness on the Google Search results page and may increase traffic as a result of an enhanced appearance.

If you have eligible content on your website, you can take advantage of these new schemas by following the best practices in this post.
