# Squares and Square roots

Showing 1 to 25 of 26

There should be a button; when you are creating resources or asking a question; that lets you type something squared or in a square root, like you can on Word

I definetly agree with this !! because without the buttons it can get very confusing when trying to explain a maths question to someone.

I think you're right, we need to help you out here with equations etc. I will need to investigate how this can be done and then add this into our priority list.

Thanks for raising this :)

great idea, i find it really annoying when i can't type in a squared sign.

Also, it's hard to put in divide by using a straight line underneath some terms like 2/3 is okay but when it's more complicated, it's harder to show e.g. (3x - 4) (x + 3) /5 when it's all divided by the 5.

also, it would be helpful if we could add in the degrees C sign

And ^3 and ^4 etc

and the ° can be used for angles too :P (if you're a bit OCD like me, you tend to steal these things from the internet XD same with √ and ² (I used this site- http://chexed.com/ComputerTips/asciicodes.php)

Yeah, when i was creating resources i needed to use the degrees symbol but i didnt know how, instead i just wrote 'degrees celcius' :P

Hey everyone

One option would be to create a resource on GR with the various functions showing.

Here's some Maths functions to copy and paste as a starter
¼ ⅓ ½ ¾
²
π
√  ∛ ∜

±
∠ ∡
∉ ∈ ∊ ∋
∫ ∱ ❘

If this is helpful we could create special characters threads and lock them so you can copy and paste from these for now?

thats a great idea.

Posted: 20-11-12 15:33 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

That would be great, thanks :)

Hi
Apologies I did this on my iPhone whilst away on holiday and all looked ok at the time.
I will look into this and find a way to get this available to you all
