### Maths and Moodle

Maths and Moodle

You may not have realised that Moodle has a built-in TeX filter that allows you to display mathematical notation. Simply surround your TeX code with double dollar signs. For example:

$$\int{\frac{1}{x}}dx=\ln|x|+C$$\$

is displayed as:

$$\int{\frac{1}{x}}dx=\ln|x|+C$$

This works in any of Moodle's HTML editors, so you can add maths:
• when composing a web page,
• in quiz questions, reponses and feedbacks,
• in assignment instructions,
• in forum posts,
• ... and many other places.
Note: if you actually want to show two adjacent dollar signs, use three of them!
