# Should we activate Mathjax?

Mathjax is a way of rendering mathematical equations using markup. I'd like it to be enabled on this site as it is on math and physics? Sometimes it's very hard to answer certain questions without the use of some mathematical notation.

Should Mathjax be activated for this site?

On Math, we can use LaTeX like this: $\LaTeX$. To make a normal dollar sign, one can use \$. On Electrical Engineering, we use \$\LaTeX\$. The$ makes a normal dollar sign. This is because the $delimiters caused problems (relevant meta). I would like to see TeX on the site, but it isn't that important to use$ for it. Use \$instead, like on Electrical Engineering. Besides, more users of this site will know Electrical Engineering than they will know Math, I think. • I don't think the$...\$ syntax will be a problem as long as we implement it ASAP. Otherwise we'll have a ton of legacy to deal with like math and ee. – Peter Andersson Apr 2 '13 at 15:43
