Under construction ...

This is what a text object looks like for a LaTeX formula. This is static text because it has no GeoGebra variables in it. I will try to get quickie screencasts up soon.

Meanwhile, there is some LaTeX explanations in Lesson 5, 6 and 8 of my main GeoGebra Tutorials.

Advanced LaTex

Symbols for pasting Use Comments
Multiplication dot Is big in both non-latex and latex
÷ Division sign (US) Good
± Plus-minus sign Good
Big minus This is too big, but "-" is too small…

 

Latex for GeoGebra  - remember surround by double quotes if adding GeoGebra variables!

Format Meaning Sampletext

What it looks like

   (in GeoGebra)

  _  subscript a_1 a_1
  _{ }  subscript a_{ij} a_{ij}
  ^    superscript a^2 b a^2 b
  ^{ }    superscript (a-b)^{m + n} (a-b)^{m + n}
\, half-space a \, = \, b a \, = \, b
\,\, full-space a \,\, = \,\, b a \,\, = \,\, b
MATRICES and EXPANDING PARENTHESES, BRACES, …
\begin{array}{c}

\end{array}

array –

   one column

\begin{array}{c} x \\ y \\ \end{array} \begin{array}{c} x \\ y \\ \end{array}
\left(

\right)

expanding parentheses – can use { [ | \left[\begin{array}{c} x \\

  y \end{array} \right]

\left[\begin{array}{c} x \\ y \end{array} \right]
\begin{array}{cc} &  \end{array} array –

   two columns

\begin{array}{cc} a & b \\

   c & d \\e & f \end{array}

\begin{array}{cc} a & b \\ c & d\\e & f \end{array}
BUILT-IN TO GEOGEBRA
\sqrt{ } square root \sqrt{ 2} \sqrt{ 2}
   \sqrt[5]{ }    5th root    \sqrt[5]{a-b }    \sqrt[5]{a-b }
\frac{ }{ } fraction \frac{p}{2} \frac{p}{2}
\vec{ } vector \vec{ v} \vec{ v}
\overline{ } segment \overline{ AB } \overline{ AB }
\sum_{ }^{ } sum \sum_{ i=1}^{ 5} \sum_{ i=1}^{ 5}
\int_{ }^{ } integral \int_{a }^{ b} \int_{a }^{ b}

If you own MathType (http://www.mathtype.com), you are saved since it has a built-in translator to Latex. You may have to takeout *{…}, but usually you only have to change the formula if you want to addGeoGebra variables – email me at contact if you have questions about how to do this.
