We’re pleased to announce that Edmodo now supports LaTeX – a typesetting system that formats mathematical equations using plain text.
To include an equation in an Edmodo Note, simply wrap the LaTeX markup in [math] … [/math]. This will generate an image of the corresponding equation, which will be displayed in the post.
“But Edmodo, Math has lots and lots of symbols – how will I ever learn how to produce these in LaTeX?!”
While it’s true that once you move beyond the basic top row of your keyboard, typing math symbols requires knowledge of some basic commands, there are a number of good resources on the web available to help you identify the LaTeX symbol for each math equation. We recommend wikibooks as a great first stop on learning LaTeX language and provides a solid foundation for basic commands.
