Math in text


Owlstown supports writing \(\LaTeX\) math in blocks that have text:
  • Text block
  • Callout block
  • Markdown block
Owlstown uses MathJax to support this feature.

How to use

To add math to a text block, use delimiters at start and end of your equations.

For inline equations, use \( and \).

This equation code \( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \) renders as \( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \)

For centered equations, use \[ and \].

This equation code \[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \] renders as:

\[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \]

Markdown support

The delimiters in Markdown are different from text blocks. Notice the two backslashes.

For inline equations, use \\( and \\).

This equation code \\( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \\) renders as \( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \)

For centered equations, use \\[ and \\].

This equation code \\[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \\] renders as:

\[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \]
