Students and staff can write maths expressions into a Moodle page (e.g. a forum, ...) fairly simply and very generally, by writing a Latex expression into a Moodle page surrounded by double dollar signs, and they appear in-line. (If you then click on the rendered maths image in Moodle you get a little popup window that shows the underlying Latex expression.)
(This method works on the GU FIMS moodle but not others. Stuart White pointed this out to me. An example of his use is here.)
Unix eqn | Latex | Moodle | Display |
---|---|---|---|
5 over 4 plus 2 over 3 | \frac{5}{4} + \frac{2}{3} | $$\frac{5}{4} + \frac{2}{3}$$ | |
- | \frac{\sqrt 4}{a^2 + 2} | $$For example: \frac{\sqrt 4}{a^2 + 2}; $$ | |
- | \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{ b^2 - 4ac}} {2a} | $$\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{ b^2 - 4ac}} {2a}$$ |
