What is the easiest way to create basic equations in Moodle Quizzes. I want to give low tech faculty some assistance.

Also - for math teachers and folks who will have more complete equations - what would you suggest.

Thanks for your quick reply!

Hi Debra,

ASCIIMathML is very easy to use.

My preference is Latex embedding. Placing x+y=2 between two dollar signs on either side then \frac{1}{x+z} \gt 7 also nested between two dollar signs on either side produces

$$x+y = 2$$ ,$$\frac {1}{x+z} \gt 7$$ get started by using Latex generator

and cut and paste and edit to get idea. Then look up latex codes to get more sophisticated.

I think that teaching students ways of writing expressions in a single line with ordinary characters is actually a good thing. I prepares them for feeding expressions into calculators and spreadsheets and interactive exercises with java/javascript.

x+y=2 1/(x+y)>7 they have to get used to parentheses.

One can use "excel" type functions as things get more "exotic":

- 3/2 + sqrt((3/2)^2-(-6))
