Steps to add math through laTeX

  1. Log in to Knowt
  2. Open your desired note or flashcards set, or click create new to start fresh
  3. In your note or flashcard, active the laTeX code (the content of the math equation) by surrounding it with $$ on each side like this: $$x^2$$

  4. Make sure to click space or enter after surrounding your laTeX math code with $$, and it should transform to a cleaner equation

  5. To edit the equation, just hover over and click the equation and the laTeX formatting with the $$ should reopen, where you can type to alter the content of the equation again
