For those Science and Math teachers, we've made symbols and math equations available on Edmodo. For simple math symbols, sites like **http://math.typeit.org** can be used to copy and paste symbols directly into Edmodo, making it your life easier. For more advanced symbols and equations, teachers can also use *LaTeX*, a system that formats symbols on Edmodo.

**Use LaTeX on Edmodo by: **

- Type
*[math]* - Insert a
*LaTeX*code - Type
*[/math]*to close the equation*.*Edmodo will show the formula shown in the left column below if you send a note with the text shown in the right column.

There are a number of good resources on the web available to help you identify the *LaTeX* symbol for each math equation. Here's a short list of our go to favorites:
