# Writing mathematics on medium.com

As a statistics researcher, I frequently need to write mathematics. For this reason, I am trying to understand medium’s mathematics capabilities. It seems that one approach to writing math on medium is to use (on a mac) the web browser menu Edit > Emoji & Symbols > Math Symbols to insert individual characters. However, I will often want to write full equations. For this latter setting, it is suggested to insert an image file. Fortunately, LatexIt makes nice images. I anticipate using it for this purpose.

Here is an example of an expression from LatexIt:

I expect that most of my posts will not be purely mathematics, so I think that the combination of inline character insertions and LatexIt image insertions will suffice.
