Want to get an equation or a mathematical expression into your questions? The Activity question editor allows you to put in complex or simple equations using AsciiMath code.

When you start editing a question, you'll see a button to learn more about using Equations.

Click that to see a pop-up with some quick instructions to getting started:

Some examples of simple commands are:

`sqrt3` = square root 3

`2/4` = two over four fraction

`x^3` = x to the third exponent

`(x+2)/3` = fraction with brackets

These are just some examples of the equations you can create. Note that sometimes it takes some time for AsciiMath to fully render in the question editor so if your equation doesn't render right away, try clicking away from the input box and wait for a few seconds and it should fully render.
