Wooclap allows you to insert mathematical formulas in a question and its possible answers by using the AsciiMath and LaTeX formats.

  • 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:

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

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.
