Medium needs LaTeX!

Sorry about the a_1 subscript notation. Using HTML subscripts, I found that half of them disappeared when I clicked publish. Not sure if this is a problem on my end. Please let me know if you have noticed the same thing with your Medium articles, if so I will post ticket with Medium.

Either way, with the amount of Math and Data Science articles on Medium, they should really let us type LaTeX. Mathjax is a simple solution, maybe it's not ideal but it's better than forcing us to write math in pure HTML or images!


I teach high school mathematics in Melbourne, Australia. I like thinking about interesting problems and learning new things.
