Does Wooclap support mathematical formulas and equations?
Does Wooclap support mathematical formulas and equations?
Add mathematical equations to your questions using the AsciiMath and LaTeX formats.
Updated over a week ago

Wooclap allows you to insert mathematical 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. These answers 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.

• AsciiMath

Simply surround formulas by backticks   or by the elements $and$.

Examples:

$1/(x+1)$or1/(x+1)
$text(N)_2 + 3 text(H)_2 -> 2 text(NH)_3$ortext(N)_2 + 3 text(H)_2 -> 2 text(NH)_3
$sum_(i=1)^n i^3=((n(n+1))/2)^2$orsum_(i=1)^n i^3=((n(n+1))/2)^2

You will find a summary of the available symbols here.

• LaTeX

Examples:

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

The formulas are rendered using the KaTeX engine. The list of supported functions is available here: https://katex.org/docs/supported.html.

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`
