Describes how to use MathJax in moodle courses.

*MathJax filter* - Disable the built-in

The *Tex notation* filter converts embedded TeX expressions to images and is enabled by default. You should disable it so that MathJax will handle TeX expressions.

MathJax will render TeX and AMS TeX expressions enclosed in the standard TeX delimiters:

Inline TeX formulas: \(...\)

Displayed TeX formulas: \[...\] and $$...$$

MathJax will also render MathML enclosed in <math> tags
