How do I add LaTeX language to my course site?

Updated

Sakai can display LaTeX equations as mathematical notation in the Rich Text Editor. Using LaTeX options, instructors and students can simply write LaTeX in an enabled tool and the resulting equation will be displayed beautifully.

Go to Site Info.

Select Site Info in the site tool menu.

Select Manage Tools.

Select the Manage Tools tab from the actions menu.

Select the check box to enable MathJax.

In the Selected Tools column, check the box to Enable MathJax for automatic rendering of LaTex and AsciiMath in this site.

Scroll down and select Continue.

Select Finish to confirm the change.

Enter LaTeX equation in the rich text editor.

Insert "$$" before and after a mathematical equation to set it apart from the rest of the text. Math equations are editable in the edit screen of the tool, but will display as an equation in preview and student view.

Equation displays as expected when viewed.
