Just to keep this alive a little longer, I have now added a bit more to the pages on Using TeX notation. There are three pages, that each page looks at different things in TeX Notation. Hopefully, what can now happen is that anyone who wants an idea on how to use it will find these pages and have a reasonably friendly starting point.
The topics covered:
TeX Notation in Moodle
Windows and TeX
Reserved Characters and Keywords
Superscripts, Subscripts and Roots
Maths symbols available in Moodle
Delimiters and Maths Constructs
Size of displays
The \picture Command
Squares and Rectangles
Lines and Arcs
Can anyone think of anything else that could go in there? Please, go and look and if there is anything that is woefully inaccurate please feel free to change it. I would ask that you add a comment into the Page Comments of you change something though. The only thing I could not get around was the layout issues, so I just put everything into tables and hoped that that works..
I am now paying around, at this stage, with a course on Elementary Trigonometry in TeX Notation, but that is proving a little time consuming, so it may take a while. As soon as it is done I want to put it into the Exchange or perhaps as a feature in the Demo site.
