# Using LaTeX for mathematical formulas and equations

RWTHmoodle allows the graphical representation of mathematical formulas and equations written in LaTeX or MathML. For this purpose, RWTHmoodle uses "MathJax ", a JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers.

Users can write formulas and equations in LaTeX wherever the Moodle editor is available. In order for the LaTeX part to be recognized and rendered as graphics, delimiters are needed to separate the LaTeX part from the rest of the text. You can use the following delimiters in RWTHmoodle:

• $$...$$ for in-line math
• $...$ as well as $$...$$ for displayed equations

You can find more detailed information on how to use TeX in Moodle in this manual on Using TeX Notation.
