# Math Equations

*NOTE: I am aware that Daum Equation Editor has not been updated a long while and may no longer be supported on may platforms. I have not yet found a replacement as good as Daum, however have a look at this Wikipedia page on formula editors for a comprehnsive list of available software.*

Occasionally you will need to type equations in homework and labs. R Markdown supports LaTeX style equations using the MathJax javascript library. I do not expect you to learn LaTeX for this course. Instead, I recommend using the free application Daum Equation Editor. It availabe online, as a Google Chrome Extension, or as a standalone Mac Application.

## Creating Equations with Daum Equation Editor

Occasionally you will need to type equations in homework and labs. R Markdown supports LaTeX style equations using the MathJax javascript library. I do not expect you to learn LaTeX for this course. Instead, I recommend using the free application Daum Equation Editor. It availabe online, as a Google Chrome Extension. With the editor, you can enter equations using menus.

Once done, copy and paste the LaTeX code at the bottom into your R Markdown file between two dollar signs (i.e. $), and the quation will be rendered by the web browser.

$$ f\left( x|\mu ,\sigma \right) =\frac { 1 }{ \sigma \sqrt { 2\pi } } { e }^{ -\frac { { \left( x-\mu \right) }^{ 2 } }{ { 2\sigma }^{ 2 } } } $$
