Hello! | 0 | 05:47, 8 November 2008 |

Hi John ,

I'm your WikiNeighbour.I see you are planning to add some math notation, it's the perfect moment to start using the powerful [math]\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,[/math] codes in order to render clear & good looking formulas like this one: [math]x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}[/math]. Seems familiar to you? Absolutely. **1.**First of all, you will need a cheat sheet where you will find codes of the most common math symbols. Click here for**Help:Displaying Special Characters**
**2**I'm also working in the creation of a comprehensive collection of [math]\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,[/math] symbology help page:**Help:LaTeX_Symbol_Tables**. This job is still in progress, please visit the project, I'd love you hear your suggestions and, If you wish, join me!
**3.**Practice the codes in your Sandbox. Once you feel confident, you may want to learn more. Great! look around some of the thousands of pages we have in WE, if you find [math]\mathrm{L\!\!^{{}_{\scriptstyle A}} \!\!\!\!\!\;\; T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X} \,[/math] symbols, switch the page to edit mode and study the codes. Copy and paste them in your sandbox, we always learn from others, that's the wiki way.
**4.**I highly recommend you to visit the**Content**page, where you will find most of the current projects we are developing in WikiEducator. Click on the Math or Physics Projects, you will find more pages with math symbols to learn from. Click here for more**projects**.
Have fun while learning. |

Thanks Gladys,

Actually, I use LaTeX all the time. In fact, I use latex more often than a word processor (I usually use LyX, a great front end for LaTeX).

Regards,

John
