Does Wooclap support mathematical and chemical formulas?

Add equations to your questions using the AsciiMath and LaTeX formats.

Updated over a week ago

Wooclap allows you to insert mathematical and chemical formulas in a question and its possible answers by using the AsciiMath and LaTeX formats. Know that it is possible to import into Wooclap a Moodle quizz including LaTeX equations. Conversely, importing into Moodle a Wooclap question including LaTeX content is also possible.

Note : These formats are not supported in the answers of Matching questions and for the categories of the Brainstorming questions. These answers/categories are displayed on students' phones as drop-down lists, the design of which we can't control. We are currently looking for a way to work around that limitation.


Simply surround formulas by backticks  ` or by the elements <math> and </math>.


<math>sum_(i=1)^n i^3=((n(n+1))/2)^2</math>
`sum_(i=1)^n i^3=((n(n+1))/2)^2`

You will find a summary of the available symbols here.



$e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0$
$\oiint_{\partial \Omega} \mathbf{E}\cdot\mathrm{d}\mathbf{S} = \frac{1}{\varepsilon_0} \iiint_\Omega \rho \,\mathrm{d}V$

The formulas are rendered using the KaTeX engine. The list of supported functions is available here:

N.B. If you wish to use the "dollar" sign in your question, here is how you can obtain it, without messing up your LaTeX format. You have to add a \ just before the "dollar":

 $$ 500 or \$ 500

Chemical formulas

Chemical equations can also be created in Wooclap thanks to the mhchem format. You just need to put a $ at the beginning and the end of the equation to make it appear in Wooclap. You will find more examples and information about the mhchem extension here.

Here are some examples:

  • Chemical formulae

  • Charges

  • Nuclides/Isotopes

  • Reaction arrows

$\ce{A <--> B}$
  • Parentheses and brackets

  • Variables

$\ce{x Na(NH4)HPO4 ->[\Delta] (NaPO3)_x + x NH3 ^ + x H2O}$
