If you teach a STEM subject and need advanced math equations, you may use Latex equations. Latex is a markup language that supports comprehensive and advanced math equations.

Both the simple and rich text editors in CN support Latex. You and your students can embed Latex equations in the following places: **posts, reflections, Tasks, Pathway activities, and quiz questions and answers. **

Embedding a Latex equation in CN is straightforward. The steps below apply to both simple and rich text editors.

**Step1.** Compose your equation in Latex. If you are not familiar with LaTex, use a free LaTex equation editor like this: https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php.

**Step2.** Copy and paste the Latex equation code into the CN editor. Here we use Post's simple text editor as an example.

- Add \( at the beginning and \) to the end of the equation code if you want it displayed
**on the same line**. - Add $$ at the beginning and the end of the equation code if you want it displayed
**on a new line**.

Note, the enclosing syntax, \(...\) or $$...$$, is very important. Without it, CN cannot recognize the Latex equation.

**Step3.** Once you are done with your content, submit it. The Latex code will automatically turn into a math equation.

The process works exactly the same in the rich text editor.

Here, I have the same LaTex code in the Pathway activity's rich text editor.

After submitting this content, the Latex code will automatically turn into a math equation.

*Note that the CN rich text editor comes with a formula tool. You may also use this tool if it is sufficient for you. *
