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 <math> and </math>.

Examples:

<math>1/(x+1)</math>

or

`1/(x+1)`

<math>text(N)_2 + 3 text(H)_2 -> 2 text(NH)_3</math>

or

`text(N)_2 + 3 text(H)_2 -> 2 text(NH)_3`

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

or

`sum_(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
