Exponents/Math Type

Apr 08, 2013


I am currently working on a lesson that involves a lot of math type, particularly exponents and fractions. Is there a quick way to insert these symbols/characters into my lesson? I am trying to avoid creating separate tiny text boxes of little numbers and inserting them into each equation.


1. If f(x) = x^2 + 3, what is f(-4)?

I need that "^2" to be an exponent.

2. If z(x) = 24/(x+3), what is z(-4)?

I need that "(x+3)" to be under the "24" in a fraction format.

Many thanks!

Hi Sarah and Welcome to E-Learning Heroes! Not sure why there is no answer here for Nicole, but your second question bumped it up, so here we go!

If you are entering the information as text, you can edit when in 'slide' mode to create the exponents using the superscript button in formatting.  Will this accomplish what you're trying to do?  If not, just give me some more information.

I realize this is an old post but anyway I did not find any satisfactory answer using LaTeX (which is what I need). For more complex or longer mathematical texts we need LaTeX and since there is no support inside Storyline, I would use any of the online editors. (Check this one: https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php). You can write your equations in LaTeX code or using the equation editor, then you can choose to download an image (gif or even png with transparent background). But the best method would be to copy the html code hosted on the site and insert it into your web page. Hope this helps!

Please check the html code produced and the transparent background in the equation.
