Writing maths directly in Moodle

You can add maths anywhere there is an editor box and it will be rendered using MathJax, which makes it accessible to screen readers.

To input maths:

  • Use the Equation Editor to graphically insert an equation (to open this select the Expanded view and then the equation editor symbol, circled in image below).The Moodle editor interface, with the expanded view button and equation editor circled
  • Use LaTeX syntax to input equations and enclose in \( ... \) and \[ ... \] for display and inline maths, respectively.

Uploaded maths content

All content uploaded to Moodle needs to be accessible. Please see our general and technical guidance on how to create accessible documents.
