Enter short tips on using WeBWorK and working with the WeBWorK community.


Enter mathematics formulas using TeX/LaTeX notation between jsMath delimiters. The jsMath delimiters are [math]...[/math] for inline math, and [dmath]...[/dmath] for display math. For example:

Consider the expression [math]\int_0^\pi \frac{1}{x^2+1} \, ds[/math]. Consider the following expression: [dmath]\int_0^\pi \frac{1}{x^2+1} \, ds[/dmath]
Consider the expression [math]\int_0^\pi \frac{1}{x^2+1} \, ds[/math]. [dmath]\int_0^\pi \frac{1}{x^2+1} \, ds[/dmath]

To cause jsMath to ignore a [math]...[/math] or [dmath]...[/dmath] section, enclose the section in an HTML element with class tex2math_ignore. This can be a <div> or a <span> or whatever you like. jsMath always ignores delimiters that occur within <pre> tags.
